MCC Nursing Students Graduate with Virtual Pinning Ceremony

Posted: May 22, 2020

First virtual event in three and a half decades.

New Hampshire’s newest nursing students celebrated a major milestone on Tuesday and, while they could not hold a ceremony in person, they kept up the tradition.

In a tradition that goes back three and a half decades, for the first time Manchester Community College held its annual Nurse Pinning Ceremony virtually. It was an achievement for 60 students.

Any other year, the pins would have been presented to each graduate by a person of special significance in their life. But now it was the hope of the college that there would be cheering and applauding at home.

“It’s just kind of a little bit of hope in such a dark time,” said Lauri Cotter the Student Nursing Association President.

The idea of a new class of eager, dedicated nurses filled with a sense of duty in times like these was a moment of hope.
