April 28, 2017 : 2017 Nursing Pinning Ceremony


2017 Nursing Pinning Ceremony


The Ohio University Chillicothe Nursing program celebrated the accomplishments of its associate and bachelor degree students April 27, 2017 by holding a pinning ceremony for the program graduates.


Pinning ceremonies are a celebratory endcap to a nursing student’s academic career which includes student receiving a nursing pin to adorn their uniforms.


12 associate degree graduates and 19 bachelor degree graduates gathered in the Shoemaker Center in front of family, friends and loved ones and OUC faculty and staff to relish in their accomplishments.


Class representatives Travis Brown, Leslie Limp and Randall Ackley provided words of wisdom regarding their journey through nursing school and offered advice for their graduating class as well as praise to their friends and family for their support.


One by one, each student came forward to accept the token they had been working years to receive – their nursing pins. Each student selected an important individual in their life to present their pin and affix it to their scrubs, showcasing a time-honored tradition in the nursing field.


They each then recited the nursing pledge and were welcomed into the field by their faculty members, staff and campus administration. These graduates will now go on to take their nursing exams and enter the workforce.
