Pinning Ceremony 2019

20 March 2019

In what was truly a memorable day for the Class of 2019, the Pinning Ceremony marked a significant milestone for the School of Nursing’s final year students. At the ceremony the students received a pin from one of the Pinning Guests on stage and recited the Nightingale Pledge surrounded by a sea of candle lights. The ceremony represents the spirit of Florence Nightingale lending inspiration to the final year students as they embark on their journey as professional nurses.

At the ceremony on March 20, 2019, the School was honoured to have Professor Sophia Chan Siu-chee, Secretary for Food and Health; Professor Gilberto Leung Ka-kit, Associate Dean (Teaching & Learning), HKUMed; and Professor Chia-Chin Lin, Head of the School of Nursing, HKUMed, as guests of honour. They delivered speeches to the final year students emphasising commitment to the community as professional nurses and encouraging them to overcome challenges that lie ahead in their professional lives. 

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
