Nursing Pinning Ceremony 3

Nursing program celebrates first year of military to RN grads


Nursing Pinning Ceremony 1 D uring the Nursing pinning ceremony last week, the program pinned eight members of the new military to RN program. There were over 160 graduates, with just over 100 attending the pinning ceremony. 

The pinning ceremony celebrates a student’s accomplishment of meeting the necessary requirements for completion of the nursing program. It is a long-time tradition going back further than the Florence Nightingale era. Although much has changed on the type of pin, what it symbolizes stays the same – a job well done.  

The military to RN program is part of the College Credit for Heroes Initiative. Alamo Colleges has focused on the initiative since July 2011. The program enhances opportunities for military service members and veterans to earn college credit for allied health education and training received while serving in the U.S. military. Credits earned accelerate the opportunities for service members and veterans to earn associate degrees in health information technology and nursing.  

Governor Rick Perry signed the initiative in 2011, with Alamo Colleges, being one of seven colleges, or districts, to pilot the program. Since then, seven more colleges, or college districts, have partnered with the program. 

 Nursing Pinning Ceremony 2The Leadership Award was also presented during the ceremony. Heather Filit, the most recent Vice President of the Texas Student Nursing Association, also served as the organization’s information officer before becoming the vice president. 

The ceremony also featured two other firsts. San Antonio College’s ROTC presented colors at the event and an underclassman, who is part of a brass quintet, played the march as nursing students filed in before and after the ceremony. 

About 900 family members, relatives and friends attended the event.
