The Fairmont State University School of Nursing honored its Class of 2019 nursing graduates with a Pinning and Awards Ceremony at the Feaster Center on May 9.
Those receiving a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Associate of Science in Nursing were “pinned.” The pinning ceremony has been a long-held commencement tradition, symbolic of welcoming newly graduated nurses into the profession of nursing.
