Pinning Ceremony

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State held its annual Pinning Ceremony last night for nursing graduates.

The candlelight processional is a symbolic representation of the traditional “Light of Knowledge” and “Ray of Hope” that was associated with the lamp that Florence Nightingale carried as she visited the sick and wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.

Receiving the Polk State College Nursing Pin symbolizes successful completion of the program of study.
