The Calvin College nursing pin

The Calvin College Nursing Pin was designed by the Class of 2004. Its colors are maroon and gold, the colors of Calvin College. The symbols are the cross, the lamp, the triangle, and the heart and hand. The cross represents the Christian faith and dedication to Christian nursing. The lamp is symbolic of the profession of nursing. The triangle represents our dependence on God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The heart and hands are Calvin’s motto, “My heart I offer to you Lord, promptly and sincerely.” The letters BSN represent the Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree which has been earned. May all who wear this pin remain dedicated to the rebuilding of Shalom.

The annual nursing department Pinning Ceremony is held the week of commencement on Thursday evening in the Covenant Fine Arts Center auditorium. Nursing graduates celebrate the end of their years at Calvin and the beginning of the next chapter in their lives.

Lots of memories will be shared with family and friends. Each graduate will be “pinned” with the Calvin College Nursing Pin, a special pin designed by the first class of nursing graduates from Calvin. Refreshments follow the ceremony in the Commons Dining Hall.

Tickets to the event are not needed. The ceremony and reception are open to all friends and family who wish to attend.

Graduating? It's time to order your 2015 nursing pin!
