Lauderdale receives Vanderbilt University School of Nursing pin

On the afternoon of Aug. 5, Dean Colleen Conway-Welch and the faculty of Vanderbilt School of Nursing presented the graduates of the Master Science in Nursing Program with their VUSN pins.

Among the graduating class was Sarah E. Lauderdale , a native of Philadelphia.

In attendance were Eliza Lauderdale and Cynthia Case of Philadelphia and Jonathan Augello of Telluride, Colo.

The tradition of the nursing pin and ceremonial pinning originated in the mid 1800s at the Nightingale School of Nursing at St. Thomas Hospital in London.

Pioneer nurse, Florence Nightingale, had been recently awarded The Red Cross of St. George for her selfless service to the injured and dying the the Crimean War.

She extended the honor to her most outstanding graduates by presenting them with a medal for excellence.

Today, the pin symbolizes academic achievement and the ceremony represents the threshold for the nurse's professional career.

After being pinned, Sarah spent time visiting family and friends in Philadelphia before returning to Colorado where she will rise and pursue her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
