Nursing Pinning Ceremony 2018

Posted on May 24th, 2018 by

On Saturday, May 5th, the Nursing Class of 2018 was honored with their traditional nursing pins in celebration of finishing the Gustavus nursing program. Family and friends were invited to share a pasta bar and dessert with their accomplished students. Barbara Kroll, Gustavus Nursing Alumni of 1963, was honored with the distinguished nursing alumni award and spoke to the students about the changes in technology and society that have occurred in the past 50 years. The best part about Barbara’s speech was the passion and love she displayed for the profession, the Gustavus community, and her beloved Gustavus classmates she still keeps in touch with. Taylor Karrow ’18 received the Academic Excellence Award for her hard work. Each student was pinned by Gustavus Nursing faculty. After, Jessica Helget taught the students and family about the history of the Gustavus Nursing Program and nursing pin that was given. Jessie then led any nurses in the audience to stand up and recite the original Florence Nightingale pledge with each other. The Gustavus Student Nursing Association (GSNA) Co-Presidents, Emee Udo and Mariah Schulte both ’18, said a few words of gratitude toward the nursing faculty, GSNA board members, class representatives, and the MSNA board member for their dedication to the program. It was a beautiful day to celebrate the new Gustavus Nursing Alumni!
