Nurse Pinning Ceremony


 Some 125 San Antonio College students received nursing pins at the ceremony Tuesday, Dec. 11, at McAllister Auditorium. More than 800 audience members, friends and family, were in attendance.

 The Nurses Pinning Ceremony is a time-honored nursing school tradition, dating back before the turn of the 20th century.  

Students receive their nursing pins after meeting the necessary program requirements for completion of the nursing program.  The event included the Nurse’s Pledge and lighting ceremony.

SAC  Nursing graduate  Ray Lynn Ruiz recently endowed the Caring Award.

Karen Prendergast was honored with the first award. Each semester this $500 scholarship will be given to the graduating senior, nominated by faculty or fellow students, who best exemplifies the attributes of Caring: compassion, confidence, conscience, commitment and comportment. Nurse_officers
