Students Honored During Lincoln University School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony

YANKTON (December 28, 2021) – Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduates were honored by the Lincoln University of Missouri School of Nursing in a pinning ceremony on Dec. 10.

A time-honored tradition, Lincoln University School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony is an initiation of individuals into the profession of nursing. Nursing pinning ceremonies date back to the 1860s, the tradition stemming from when Florence Nightingale presented a medal of excellence to her brightest graduates. By 1916, the practice of pinning new graduates had become standard throughout the U.S.

“Today the demand for your skillset is high, and our graduates are employed across the globe,” said Lincoln University Interim President John Moseley in an address to the BSN graduates at the ceremony. “Lincoln University produces the best, and those recognized here tonight are going to blaze their trail into this profession.”

The Lincoln University School of Nursing offers a BSN degree and an online registered nurse (RN) to BSN degree. In addition, the school offers a part-time Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing degree at Fort Leonard Wood, with evening courses and weekend clinical options for local, active-duty military personnel and their dependents.

Lincoln’s AAS and BSN program options are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and are approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
