Mount Carmel College of Nursing Celebrates Commencement May 8-9
MCCN celebrated a wonderful Commencement weekend on May 8 and 9 at Grove City Church of the Nazarene.
Festivities began with the traditional Pinning and Recognition Ceremony for graduates on Friday, May 8. The tradition of presenting pins to nursing graduates dates back to 1860, when Florence Nightingale wanted graduates of the first professional nursing program in London to stand out and be respected, so she designed a pin for graduates to wear on their uniforms. By 1916, awarding pins became a common practice for all nursing graduates in North America and the United Kingdom. Today each nursing institution awards their own uniquely designed pin, which is awarded by faculty to new graduates, symbolizing entry into the field of nursing.

SDAP Students to Celebrate with Sophomore Pinning Ceremony

In the past, this ceremony was the first official donning of the Mount Carmel uniform and student nurse cap. Although students no longer receive and wear caps, the modern ceremony maintains the same spirit, celebrating the ministry of caring and service that these aspiring nurses now undertake.
