The Graduate School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony

The Graduate School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony will be held virtually in lieu of the traditional in-person Convocation Week event.

The virtual ceremony will take place on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 6pm. Information on how to view the ceremony will be forthcoming.


In the presence of family, guests and faculty members, students in the Graduate Entry Pathway (GEP) program are ceremonially presented with their nursing pins and welcomed into the nursing community by campus leaders.The GEP program, for individuals with a baccalaureate degree in a field other than nursing, leads first to registered nurse licensure and then to advanced nursing specialties. The pinning ceremony symbolizes successful completion of the courses and clinical experiences required for taking the licensure exam.
