USCB holds pinning ceremony for nursing graduates

The University of South Carolina Beaufort will conduct a pinning ceremony for graduates in the 2014 pre-licensure class of the Department of Nursing and Health Professions Thursday, May 1, at 3 p.m., at the Center for the Arts on the university’s Historic Beaufort Campus. This is the fourth pinning ceremony since the inception of the baccalaureate degree program for nursing students. Designed by graduates of the first BSN class in 2011, the nursing pin is an emblem worn on a nurse’s uniform to identify the nursing school from which he or she graduated. It also indicates the nurse’s level of education. The pin is presented to each BSN graduate by the faculty as a symbolic welcome to the profession.

The pre-licensure track in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program provides a four-year course of study for BSN students. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the South Carolina Board of Nursing. It is tangible evidence of the university’s mission to “offer baccalaureate degrees that respond to regional needs, draw upon regional strengths, and prepare graduates to participate successfully in communities here and around the globe.”
