Capping, Pinning, and Candle Lighting Ceremony

Capping ceremony is done before a student nurse can have his/her duty in a hospital. Each female student will be given a cap, while males will receive pins. We will also light candles as a symbol of Florence Nightingale's lamp.

I'll share some picture for you to imagine more hehehe :)

(from left) 1.Mass is done first. We are in line for the communion. We don't have our caps yet. 2.After the mass, the ceremony of capping is done and our clinical instructor will give you your cap or pin.

(from left) 1.After the caps and pins are given we will light our candle. You can see our Ms. Nightingale on the left side, she carried the lamp at her entrance earlier in the ceremony. 2.We will go to our seats and sing a song to thank for our capping and pinning ceremony and as a symbol of the lamp. We sang "God of Day and God of Darkness" a very beautiful song.

The guest speaker told us that we should let go our easy go lucky years and get out of our comfort zones, aww. "Do your best, and let him take care of the rest"

I am now having my duty at FEU Dahlia Hospital and assigned to OB ward. There is nothing much to do for student nurses there, we just give medicines to patients, sample charting and take their vital signs.
