Pin Nominations Due March 31!

Nominations due Friday, March 31 by 12:59pm! 


Each year, the UW–Madison Nurses Alumni Organization (UW NAO) honors outstanding graduating students by presenting them with pins donated by alumni of the School. Started in 1996, the pinning tradition illustrates the proud history of the UW–Madison School of Nursing and the strong connection alumni have to the School. More information regarding the pin tradition can be found here.


All UWMadison School of Nursing students, faculty, and staff are welcome to nominate graduating undergraduate nursing students for consideration to receive a nursing pin that has been donated by an alum. Pin recipients will be selected by the NAO and will be honored during a virtual pinning ceremony in late-April.

The NAO Pin nominations are collected separately from Graduation Award nominations, though nominations are typically collected around the same time. View the Nomination Information section at the top of this page for nomination links and deadlines.

Self-nominations will be accepted for the Nurses Alumni Organization (NAO) Pin.
