On Friday, December 18 at First Southern Baptist Church, 60 graduating nurses walked across the stage as part of GCU’s College of Nursing Convocation and Pinning Ceremony. These nurses have completed their BSN degrees in pre-licensure as well as RN-BSN. This unique ceremony dates back centuries. The modern tradition followed today began in the 1860s when Queen Victoria awarded the Red Cross of St. George to Florence Nightingale for her work with British soldiers.

The ceremony is considered the symbolic beginning of a graduate’s nursing career. The pin itself is a symbol of the tradition shared by nurses around the world. It is worn prominently on the nurse’s uniform throughout their career. “Every school has a unique pin,” says CON Dean Dr. Anne McNamara. “If you look at the Grand Canyon College of Nursing pin, it reflects the logo of GCU with the cross of Jesus Christ and the saguaro cactus.” The ceremony also honored ROTC nursing graduates who have achieved the standards necessary to not only graduate as nurses but also earn commissions as a second lieutenant […]
