Date: Saturday, April 27, 2024 Time: Ceremony at 9:00 a.m. Location: Abbey Church
During the Nurse Pinning Ceremony, one nursing faculty member and one student will be recognized for their exceptional work as nurses with DAISY Awards. The DAISY Award is a prestigious designation that continuously honors compassionate and skilled nurses in over 6,000 schools of nursing and healthcare facilities internationally.
The design includes elements of the official seal of the college. The symbol of the lamp on the shield refers to Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp of my steps and a light for my path."
The inscription Initium Sapientiae Timor Domini means The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
Dear Lord, please give the the strength
To face the day ahead,
Dear Lord, please give me the courage
As I approach each hurting bed.
Dear Lord, please give me the wisdom
With every word I speak
Dear Lord, give me the patience
As I comfort the sick and weak.
Dear Lord, please give me the assurance
As the day slips into night
That I have done the best I can
That I have done what is right.
