Nursing faculty at Penn State Worthington Scranton recently welcomed 52 new nursing graduates into the nursing profession during their annual pinning ceremony.

The “pinning” ceremony, an annual tradition at Penn State Worthington Scranton is a symbolic welcoming of newly-graduated nurses into the nursing profession.

Worthington Scranton nursing faculty presented the new graduates with Penn State’s School of Nursing’s official pin.

The pins are not a required part of any nursing uniform, however, in honor of tradition, most students will wear their pins after they graduate and begin working as professional nurses.
