Did You Know About the Nurse Pinning Ceremony?

Did you know about the nurse pinning ceremony?

My sister-in-law got her nurses pin tonight. After a lot of hard work she is finally done with nursing school. We got to go to see her get pinned. It is basically like a graduation with the tradition of the pin, which is unique to each school, and the lighting of the lamp, which follows in the tradition of Florence Nightingale. The nurses also wore their scrubs for their ceremony. When some asked why not dress up, their instructors told them that they have worked hard to wear this uniform! I was also pleasantly surprised at how much acknowledgement of God their was within the ceremony.
