Pinning Ceremony 2022 Past Event

Event details

A Pinning Ceremony was organised on August 3 for the Class of 2022, the first batch of nursing students, to receive their nursing pins at the new Academic Building on 3 Sassoon Road – the new home of the School of Nursing.

The nursing pin is a symbol of recognition of students’ accomplishments and a resemblance of upholding a high standard of professionalism.  These students are ready to embark on a new chapter of life to take on challenges and embrace opportunities.

Many of them have already served the community in the nursing profession during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic through service initiatives, such as hotline services, community testing and vaccination programmes and taking care of frail elderly patients at the Community Isolation Facilities.  These high-calibre nursing students are more than competent to join our healthcare workforce to contribute their knowledge and skills to the Hong Kong healthcare system.

By reciting together the Florence Nightingale Pledge and lighting the candles, students are committed to upholding the ethics and principles of the nursing profession and raising the standards and prestige of practical nursing.
