Recognition Ceremony & Commencement

Celebrating our Graduates: Recognition Ceremony and Commencement

College Recognition Ceremony

The recording of the fall 2020 in-person recognition ceremony live-streamed on Thursday, December 17, at 9 AM CST at the George Bush Presidential Library's Annenberg Conference Center is now available for replay. Please visit to view the celebration!

A time-honored tradition, the Texas A&M University College of Nursing hosts a recognition ceremony to honor graduates with that event typically held on the same day of commencement (graduation). Baccalaureate nursing students receive their nursing pin and graduate nursing students are presented with their hoods.

The wearing of the pin is a source of pride, symbolizing the rights and privileges earned by the BSN graduates. The pin, which is representative and unique to the Texas A&M College of Nursing, was designed by the college’s inaugural class in 2009. Hooding is a momentous time recognizing students who have earned an advanced degree. This additional ceremony allows graduates to receive special recognition in a more personal way than is permitted at the university's general commencement event.
