WINNIPEG — More than 100 new nurses joined the profession during a pinning ceremony Thursday at the University of Manitoba.

The convocation saw 114 new graduates recite the U of M Bachelor of Nursing pledge, which was inspired by the 1893 Florence Nightingale Pledge and has been adapted by the university.

“I am confident about our future with the Class of 2019 as our new nurses and nurse leaders,” said Dr. Netha Dyck, Dean, College of Nursing.

“I look forward to their leadership and significant contributions to our profession of nursing and our health care, and I am excited to celebrate their successes at our convocation and pinning ceremony.”

The convocation also saw 14 students graduate from the College of Nursing’s master’s program.
