The ceremony is a time-honored nursing school tradition, dating back 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 a momentous event that is shared with family, friends, faculty and others important to the students’ education.

The ceremony, sponsored by BCC’s Student Nurse Organization, will honor the following students who will graduate on May 31, 2019:
