Presbyterian School of Nursing Blessing & Pinning Ceremony
Blessing of the Hands is an ancient sacrament of cleansing and anointing. During the ceremony, individuals commissioned to heal others through the use of their hands are invited to the altar to be blessed by members of the local clergy.
New nurses receiving their school pins is a time-honored tradition which signifies a rite of passage into the nursing profession. Each pin is a symbolic representation of the program and of the Presbyterian School of Nursing at Queens. Awards are also presented at this ceremony.
