    The two songs that we played at our graduation were:
    1. Whenever you Remember by Carrie Underwood
    2. My Wish by Rascal Flatts

    Everyone in our class agreed on these songs- they fit perfectly with the nursing graduation because of the crap they put you through!

    Good luck and Congrats!

    We are doing the same, pinning in a church. I don't know the name of this song, but it's by Carrie Underwood on her new CD. It's perfect because it hasn't been overplayed a million times. Look up the CD and I bet it sticks out. And, CONGRATULATIONS, can you believe it's finally here?

    Whenever You Remember, Carrie Underwood. It was just mentioned above.

    We had our ceremony in a church and I made a slide show set to
    "Dream Big" by Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband. Here's the lyrics:

    An' when you cry, be sure to dry your eyes,
    'Cause better days are sure to come.
    An' when you smile, be sure to smile wide,
    An' don't let them know that they have won.
    An' when you walk, walk with pride: don't show the hurt inside,
    Because the pain sill soon be gone.

    An' when you dream, dream big,
    As big as the ocean, blue.
    'Cause when you dream it might come true.
    But when you dream, dream big.

    An' when you laugh, be sure to laugh out loud,
    'Cause it will carry all your cares away.
    An' when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself,
    An' it will help you feel okay.
    An' when you pray, pray for strength to help to carry on,
    But when the troubles come your way.

    An' when you dream, dream big,
    As big as the ocean, blue.
    'Cause when you dream it might come true.
    But when you dream, dream big.

    An' when you laugh, be sure, (Dream big.)
    to laugh out loud,

    'Cause it will carry all your cares away.
    And when you see, see the beauty, (Dream big.)
    all around and in yourself,

    An' it will help you feel okay.
    An' when you pray, pray for strength to help to carry on,
    But when the troubles come your way.

    An' when you dream, dream big,
    As big as the ocean, blue.
    'Cause when you dream it might come true.
    An' when you dream, dream big.

    Check out "I believe I can fly" by R Kelly. Perfect words for graduation. And we showed a video of pictures we had taken throughout the program along with the song playing in the background. it was awesome! Kat

    We graduated last Sept. and my best friend from school sung, "Do I Make You Proud", by Taylor Hicks. Everytime I hear that sone I cry. It was perfect and her voice with the voice of the piano player(also a student) was PERFECT.

    Congratulations! If you have any questions, you could PM me about the NCLEX. I took it in Nov. and passed on 75 questions feeling very confident when I left it.

    Sounds like you have been given some excellent ideas for graduation/pinning
    But....
    Welcome to the Jungle (Guns N Roses) would be appropriate for orientation to nursing school!!! LOL:uhoh21:

    how about Enya, "Only Time" very somber but uplifting too. Very church worthy!

    Vitamin C - "graduation" and Rascal Flatts "My wish" would both be good.

    Although have to say, loved the suggestion of "Welcome to the Jungle"
