Graduate Pin Nomination Deadline Extended to April 10

Deadline extended: Please submit all nominations by April 10 at 11:59 PM.

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 late 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Graduating Student and Alumni Welcome event in Cooper Hall has been canceled. School of Nursing staff is currently investigating other opportunities to recognize those students who are graduating in Spring 2020.
