College of Nursing Pin Pals Program

The Pin Pals program will support the costs associated with the pinning of our BSN graduates, while linking donors to our newest Spartan Nurses in a meaningful way. We are asking for donations of $62.50 which will cover cost of a traditional pin for a graduate. Those who donate will be able to send a congratulatory note to the graduate they sponsor.

Note: Pins will be assigned randomly and cannot be dedicated to specific students.

Help Us Create a Meaningful Connection with New Spartan Nurses

Our goal with Pin Pals is to create a connection between our graduates and the College of Nursing family. Gifts to this project will underwrite the cost of purchasing nursing pins for every BSN student graduating from the MSU College of Nursing, beginning with our December 2018 cohort. Our nurses will be especially touched by the notes of congratulations that come with their pins.

The Pinning Ceremony

The pinning of graduating nurses is a time-honored tradition rich in symbolism. It dates back to the 1860s when Florence Nightingale (the founder of modern nursing), was awarded the Red Cross of St. George in recognition for her tireless service to the injured during the Crimean War. Often more personally meaningful than the graduation ceremony, it signifies a graduate’s official initiation into the nursing community.

The College of Nursing’s Pin Pals program will be funded through contributions from alumni, faculty, family, and friends, as well as the Development and Alumni Relations Office. As a result of donations like yours, each graduating BSN student will receive their MSU Nursing pin free of charge!

Pin Pals will provide not only monetary support, but will connect each new Spartan Nurse to their pin’s sponsor with a congratulatory note.

The MSU College of Nursing Pin Pals program will kick off with our Fall 2018 graduates.
