Nominations open for Graduate Pin Awards

Nominate a graduating senior for the alumni pin awards!

Each year, the School of Nursing honors outstanding spring graduates who:

  • are concerned, caring people
  • are well-rounded in personal and service-oriented commitments but with recognized academic accomplishments
  • have overcome significant difficulties to attend school
  • and/or have completed an important and innovative project to improve the health of the community.

We invite all UW-Madison nursing students, faculty, and staff to nominate a graduating nursing student who fits these criteria by offering 2-3 sentences below about why they should be recognized with a University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing pin. Students may also nominate themselves. A small committee of faculty, staff, and alumni will review nominations and select finalists.

Awards will be presented at the BSN Graduation Celebration and Alumni Welcome on April 30 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.

Nominate online at

Please submit all nominations by March 12 at 11:59 PM.
