Nursing Pins

Nurse pins, also known as nursing school graduation pins, are lapel pins worn by nurses to highlight their recent completion of a professional nursing program. These pins are most often presented to new nurses during their nursing school graduation ceremonies. Beyond graduation, in some cases nurses receive lapel pins after obtaining certain certifications or licenses, for years of service at a particular hospital, or even to signify membership in certain organizations.

Nursing School Graduation and Hospital Nurse Pins

PinCrafters has been designing and creating custom nurse pins for schools, hospitals and organizations for years and we’d love to help you create the perfect pin today. Request your free quote now to get started.

While pins traditionally worn by nurses came in the form of a traditional cross or sometimes as a stylized ‘RN’, we specialize in customized lapel pins that use logos and personal touches, tailored to show the wearer’s organizational membership. Others recognize nursing school graduation, years of service and other accomplishments such as passing exams.

Custom Nurse Pins

Some hospitals and schools choose to customize their pins using logos that represent different things such as the hospital logo, school logo or state shape. Some have special recognition pins that are customized for their own need, to honor excellence in nursing or to commemorate nurse conventions. There are also different materials used in creating custom nurse pins including enamel, metal and cloisonné.
