Celebration ~ Stephanie’s Pinning Ceremony ~ Rio Hondo College

Last night was Stephanie’s pinning ceremony at Rio Hondo College. This was the first of two graduation events for Stephanie. Tonight is her graduation from Rio Hondo College.  In case you do not know what the purpose of a pinning ceremony is, here is a summary.

A pinning ceremony is a symbolic welcome of newly graduated nurses into the nursing profession. New nurses are presented pins by the faculty of the nursing school and the nurses recite the Nightingale Pledge(a traditional pledge taken by new nurses) in unison.

Since Stephanie likes to approve the photos I post of her, I am only posting a photo of the pin and the stage. I’ll post more later.
