The Nursing Pinning Ceremony for the nursing graduates of SOUTH 0412 took place this past May 31st, 2012 at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Hialeah, FL. The nursing graduates were very emotional and full of joy knowing that this was one of their final steps in becoming a Registered Nurse.
Nevertheless, they were all aware that this was only the beginning of a long journey ahead of them. They shared their feelings about their fellow classmates and professors. As they were walking towards the stage to receive their graduating pin, a quote of their preference was read out loud. Friends and family members were able to see the graduates on stage pledging to the nurse pledge while the room was dim and being lightened only by the graduates’ candles. It was a beautiful experience to share this moment with our RN students finally graduating and being recognized for all their efforts.
