Second, when the Torah says that a betrothed woman (an Arusah) who commits adultery is punished with Sekilah, that includes the daughter of a Kohen. The Torah then takes the daughter of a Kohen out of each category, giving her the punishment of Sereifah, whether she is a Nesu'ah or an Arusah (according to Rebbi Shimon).

2.NISU'IN - the stage of completion of the marriage, in general connoting that the husband brings his wife into his house (see Background to Kidushin 2:1:II:c).
