SDAP Students to Celebrate with Sophomore Pinning Ceremony

Sophomore Pinning is an annual tradition symbolizing a rite of passage—a milestone that marks a student’s academic achievement and commissions them to undertake the privilege of caring for patients. 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.

On Friday, February 27, Mount Carmel will celebrate the transition of our Second Degree Accelerated Program (SDAP) sophomores into clinical rotations. The event will take place at 3 p.m. in the Medical Staff Building (MSB) Auditorium on the Mount Carmel West campus. For any questions about Sophomore Pinning, please contact Joanna Worthington at
