Pinning Ceremony at Nunez
The Health and Natural Science Division at Nunez Community College held its Fall Pinning Ceremony for the Practical Nursing Diploma Program on Dec. 17.
The tradition of the nursing pin and the ceremonial pinning we know today, actually originated in the 1860’s at the Nightingale School of Nursing at St. Thomas Hospital in London. Having been recently awarded The Red Cross of St. George for her selfless service to the injured and dying in the Crimean War, Florence chose to extend this honor to her most outstanding graduate nurses by presenting each of them with a medal for excellence.
