2020: A Pinning Ceremony Like No Other

The FPB Pinning Ceremony is well-known by our students to be one of the most intimate and unforgettable events attended before graduation. It is the event where you are recognized and inducted into the FPB Alumni Association by receiving the FPB nursing pin, a time-honored tradition of the nursing profession.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from hosting our 2020 Pinning Ceremonies in person. Like you, the faculty and staff are disappointed with this reality, but it doesn't stop us from celebrating your incredible accomplishments.

Join Us for FPB's Fall 2020 Pinning Ceremony

When: Friday, Dec. 4, 2020 at 4 p.m. ET

What: Like our Spring 2020 Pinning Ceremony, we hope to make this as personal as we can in this virtual format. The event has been pre-recorded, but it will be streamed at 4 p.m. with a live chat function enable so congratulations can be shared in real time. Addressing our Fall 2020 graduates will be Dean Carol Musil; Armando Gutierrez, graduate student speaker; and Hiripan Ontiveros, undergraduate student speaker.
