Ancilla Honors Newly Pinned Nurses

May 22, 2018

Ancilla_Nurses pinning2018_1The annual Nursing Professional Pinning ceremony for Ancilla College Nursing graduates was held Sunday, May 20, in the Ancilla Domini Chapel. Though traditionally held in a smaller chapel at the Center at Donaldson, due to the large number of nursing graduates, the ceremony had to be moved to accommodate the group. Patty Moore, nursing instructor, gave the invocation. Liz King, Director of Nursing and Health Sciences at Ancilla College, welcomed everyone to the ceremony. “Traditionally, pins are presented by registered nurses and this is our way of welcoming graduating nursing students to our profession,” said King.
