Just had to share...I got pinned last night! :smiley_aa
It was such a neat ceremony. I was on the pinning committee, so I was in on the planning, but it turned out so much better than I imagined! Everyone I talked to said how impressed they were with it.
We processed in from the back of the theater, up the stairs & onto the stage to the song "Where My Heart Will Take Me" by Russell Watson & were greeted with a HUGE amount of applause! I leaned over & whispered to my friend "we're rock stars!" Haha!
We had two student speeches, a poem, blessing of the hands, and then we got pinned. There were 47 of us graduating, so it took awhile. They played a piano version of "How To Save A Life" in the background while we got our pins. After than, we had the candlelight ceremony where we recited the Nightingale Pledge, we had a closing prayer and then a bagpiper walked in playing, stopped at the podium & we walked out the same way we came in, and the bagpiper followed us (our school was founded by a Scotsman & our mascot is a scottish lion). We left to a ton more applause. (We're rock stars!!) It was awesome!
Now I'm a graduate nurse. I can hardly believe it! Now I just have to tackle the boards & find a job!
