We invite all UWMadison nursing students, faculty, and staff to nominate graduating nursing students for consideration to receive a University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing alumni pin. Students may self-nominate. Pin recipients will be selected in early April.
Started in 1996, the pinning tradition illustrates the proud history of the UW–Madison School of Nursing and the strong connection of its alumni to the School. The strongest candidates to receive an alumni pin:
  • are concerned, caring people
  • are well-rounded in personal and service-oriented commitments but with recognized academic accomplishments
  • have overcome significant challenges to attend school
  • have completed an important and innovative project to improve the health of the community.

Awards will be presented at the Graduation Celebration and Alumni Welcome on April 28 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.

Nominate online at

Please submit all nominations by March 25 at 11:59 PM.
