Nursing Students Participate in White Coat Ceremony


NMU’s School of Nursing was one of 100 nationwide selected to receive funding support to pilot White Coat Ceremonies, which are designed to instill a commitment to providing compassionate care among future health professionals. The selections were announced by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

White Coat Ceremonies have been an important rite of passage at medical schools for more than 20 years, but this new collaboration between APGF and the AACN marks the first time a coordinated effort has been developed to offer similar events at schools of nursing.  For more information about the White Coat Ceremony or to view the ceremony, click here
