History of the Nursing Pin

The pin is a long-standing symbol of service to others, becoming common in the US in the early 1900s. Most recently, the pin has identified nurses as educated professionals who serve the health-related needs of society. It symbolizes entry into the nursing profession, provides proof of education, and represents both the art and science of nursing.
