Pinning and Awards Ceremonies

The Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing celebrates each student’s completion of the program and other student achievements via a joint Pinning and Awards Ceremony. The event is held once a year, usually in the spring.

The Pinning Ceremony is a time-honored tradition within the nursing profession. The Pinning Ceremony dates before the turn of the 20th century and marks a graduate’s passing from student to practicing nurse. It is a symbolic welcoming of graduates to the profession.

The Awards Ceremony recognizes students who have received Saskatchewan Polytechnic and University of Regina Nursing awards, scholarships and bursaries.

Family and friends are welcome to attend!
