Pinning Ceremony

Wise Words from President Petillo at the 2016 Pinning Ceremony

As you approach and are pinned remember that it is a commitment to serve. The dignity is in the serving not in the prestige. There is nobility in showing affection and love to those for whom you care.

Your knowledge and skills are most important to your career. But it is your dignity for caring that will speak of your character.

One of the bells outside this chapel is inscribed with the simple words, "Remember your dignity". Chisel it in your heart for all those common people that God just made so many. Believe me, then you will be remembered not only as a nurse but as a noble one.
