Berkshire Community College (BCC) held the 47th Pinning Ceremony of the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program on Tues., May 24 in the College’s Robert Boland Theatre in the Koussevitzky Arts Center.
Yvette Losaw, staff nurse at Berkshire Medical Center addressed the students.
The ceremony is a time-honored nursing school tradition, dating back to before the turn of the twentieth century. Traditionally, nursing students have conducted an Honors or Pinning Ceremony to mark the passage of student nurse role to practice role. It is an emotional event that is shared with family, friends, faculty and others important to the students’ education.
The ceremony, sponsored by BCC’s Student Nurse Organization, honored the following students who will graduate on June 3.
