USD Nursing Receives Award for White Coat Ceremony
The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) made the announcement earlier this fall.
Launched in 2013, a groundbreaking collaboration between APGF and AACN has enabled 260 schools of nursing in 48 states, plus the District of Columbia, to offer ceremonies designed to instill a commitment to providing compassionate care among the next generation of registered nurses.
In nursing, a white coat ceremony typically consists of the recitation of an oath, an address by an eminent role model, and a reception for students and invited guests. Students also are given a specially designed pin that serves as a visual reminder of their oath and commitment to providing high quality care.
