    I'm only in my first semester right now, but I'll probably only go to the pinning. I did the whole college graduation thing when I got my BA. This time around I'm graduating from a community college so I figure "What's the point?" The pinning is just the nursing school and that's what's important to me.

    i'm going to both the pinning and graduation ceremonies. i can not wait !! i think it will be hard to keep from crying through both. there were times i wanted to give up but to attend both is like a reward for not doing so. anyway, congrats :hatparty: to everyone graduating!

    Quote from berta
    anyone going to have a graduation party? i don't graduate until next year, but i want a party! i know its kind of silly (i'm 35), but i going to be the first in my family to graduate from college. i don't want gifts, i just want to share the happy event with everyone who has supported me. my husband thinks i'm daft for even wanting one.

    Berta,
    Are you kidding me? My husband has been planning "my" party for months. He wants a pig in the ground and all the trimmings! I just want my little pin and I'll be on cloud nine, have a party girl and do it up BIG! You deserve it!

    to me, it's the graduation for the nursing student. its specific events depends on the school/students choices. in general, there is /are a/some speaker/s, music, pinning and capping the graduates, taking pictures of the class, lighting of candles with the entering and existing of the graduates, and a reception afterward.

    the setting and memories are, to me, wonderful, or at least this is what i remember from my lpn pinning.

    YAAYYY!!! the end is soooo near. It has been a challenging journey but a rewarding one. OK so, how does a male fit into the pinning and capping ? I'm the only male in my class everyone is talking about what to wear and sounds like a bunch of girlie stuff. :icon_roll It's all good but I kinda feel left out ya know what I mean!!

    ask your school's SNA. I think we are all wearing out clinical uniforms (yucckk lol) Thats what past groups have done.
    Me, I am going to pinning for sure. I am still undecided about graduation. We are supposed to go but what are they going to do...fail us for not showing up? lol
