CBC honors LVN graduates at annual Pinning and Candle Lighting Ceremony

Headline: CBC honors LVN graduates at annual Pinning and Candle Lighting Ceremony

On Wednesday, August 12 Coastal Bend College’s (CBC) Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN) program students participated in the annual pinning and candle lighting ceremony. The ceremony took place at CBC Beeville’s Peter S. Marecek Physical Fitness Center (gymnasium).

CBC’s pinning ceremony is an annual event that signifies the completion of the student’s initial nursing education. Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, started the tradition over 150 years ago by presenting graduates of the nursing school she founded with a medal or symbolic “badge of courage.”

The medal was meant to encourage her students to faithfully serve the injured, sick and dying in challenging situations and often dangerous circumstances. Over the years, this medal evolved into a pin indicating the institution from which the nurse received their training.

As a tribute to Nightingale’s dedication and compassion, her pledge was read and each graduate carried a lamp lit by their nursing instructor demonstrating their intention to carry her ideals forward.

Julie Garcia was this year’s keynote speaker. She attended Bee County College (BCC) from 1968-69 as part of the LVN program and was part of the second graduating class. She spoke to the graduates and their guests about the nursing profession highlighting that their newly acquired profession is a gift to be cherished.
