NURSING PINNING CEREMONY
Families and friends gathered on Saturday afternoon, April 25 at Goshen College for the 56th Annual Pinning Ceremony of graduating nurses in the class of 2009.
Twenty-two young men and women from seven states and three countries listened to Mervin Helmuth, M.S.N., Associate Professor of Nursing at Goshen College challenge them to have the audacity to be the kind of nurses the world needs. This includes, he stated among other things, having a holistic view of their patients and their needs. The art of nursing is more than science; it is one of the fine arts, so a nurse needs to find a balance between art and science, learning how to merge art and care.
Each graduate received a pin noting the achieving of their degrees, an anointing of their hands for service and a lamp, the symbol of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Afterwards the graduates celebrated with their families and friends at a reception in the Church Fellowship Hall.
