Nursing Pins

Nursing students who are graduating from Frederick Community College are required to purchase a pin for the Pinning Ceremony. Graduates have selection of nursing pins that differ in looks, materials, and price that they can purchase.

Nursing pins are picked up by the nursing department and taken to the ceremony. Orders for all nursing pins must be placed in the Bookstore by March 21st, 2018 for your pins to made and delivered on time for the pinning ceremony. Orders placed after that time are not guaranteed for delivery, and a “loaner” pin may be substituted.

We encourage our graduating nursing students to visit the bookstore, look over our sample selection of pins and place their orders. Please click on our "Hours" link at the bottom of our website to see our current business hours so you can plan your visit.

For students who are not able to come to the bookstore, you can visit the maker of the nursing pins, Herff Jones, at their website and order directly. You may also view the pins on their website and call us to place your order at 301-846-2463.

Type in “Frederick Community College” when prompted to type in the name of your school, select “RN” from the drop down menu, and finally click on the green button “Nursing & Medical” to start shopping for the pin that is right for you. Please be aware their deadline is April 6th 2018.
