Pinning 2013

 

 Pinning 2013

 

The pinning ceremony is a symbolic welcoming of newly graduated nurses into the nursing profession.  It is bridge from the nursing's past to nursing's future.  Because today's nurses do not wear their traditional whites and nursing caps in the health care environment, we provide them with a pin to distinguish them from other professionals.  It also provides a life-long connection to the UCLA School of Nursing.   Each student is "pinned" by a faculty member, a mentor or a loved one as a symbolic welcome to the profession.  It is an intimate ceremony filled with emotion.
