Ragster Administration and Conference Center on the Orville E. Kean Campus on St. Thomas. 

A nursing pinning ceremony is a symbolic event for nursing students as it marks the hard work and dedication of their coursework and clinical rotations. Each student receives a traditional nursing pin that marks their transition from a student to a professional nurse. The students take a scared oath of commitment, The Florence Nightingale Pledge at the Ceremony. 

Members of the University community, family, and friends are invited to attend.
