A long-standing tradition is that each student is able to invite two individuals of their choice to participate in Recognition Ceremony. These two individuals will be guided on stage to present each graduate with a ribbon lei provided by the School, affixed with a UHM Nursing alumni pin. Students will have their photo taken with their presenters that will be available for purchase following Recognition Ceremony.


Presenters should plan to arrive by 4:30 p.m. You will need to meet your graduate to receive your presenter card and their personal belongings to hold for them during the ceremony. The presenter card indicates your line up order for your participation in the formal ceremony.


During the Ceremony, the emcee will call up presenters by degrees conferred and by number. Reference the information on your presenter card. When instructed, line up in numerical order. Ushers will be holding signs to assist you in lining up.

Once you reach the front of the line, a faculty member will instruct you when to go on stage. You will be handed a ribbon lei with a pin affixed. Present your graduate with this lei and pause momentarily for a photo at the X marked on the stage. Exit the stage as instructed and return to your seat. Photos will be available for purchase after the event.
