The Stuart Circle Hospital
Graduate Nurse Pin

 

This is what all the hard work was for, this and the diploma. After passing boards you had the right to use the letters R.N. after your name. The pin was the most visible symbol of graduation. This was the reward for 3 hard years of sweat and toil.

In the center of the pin is printed the year of graduation. On the reverse side the graduate's name is engraved, with the school motto: "Deo Per Homines Sevire" which means "To serve God through Man."
