The pinning ceremony is an honored tradition which originated in the 1860s at the Nightingale School of Nursing in London, England. Having been recently awarded The Red Cross of St. George for her selfless service to injured and dying soldiers in the Crimean War, Florence Nightingale chose to extend this honor to her most outstanding graduates by presenting each of them with a medal of excellence. This tradition of pinning at Mount Aloysius College began with the nursing department and expanded to all allied health programs.
