Southeastern’s School of Nursing held a drive-by Pinning Ceremony on December 3, 2020, to celebrate it’s graduates. A time honored tradition, graduates have been pinned since the first graduation class in 1969. Sixty students and their immediate family members participated. 

Graduates rode through Friendship Circle with decorated cars and waved at loved ones there to cheer them on. Students received a pin and a commemorative bag with a cookie and program to remember their time at Southeastern. They also received a nursing lamp. Lamp-lighting is a tradition followed by all nursing graduates to remind them of the noble traditions of their profession. The lamp symbolizes the light that a nurse becomes to their patients and is a symbol of hope and comfort to those who are suffering.
