Carroll University to Participate in White Coat Ceremonies

August 18, 2014

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) announced that Carroll University is one out of 100 schools of nursing selected to receive funding support to pilot White Coat Ceremonies. White Coat Ceremony consists of the recitation of an oath, cloaking of students in a white coat, an address by an eminent role model, and a reception for students and invited guests. Students also will receive a specially designed pin that will serve as a visual reminder of their oath and commitment to providing high quality care. The program was developed to promote humanistic, patient-centered care among incoming nursing students this fall.

In this pilot year, nursing schools in 43 states plus the District of Columbia were provided financial support and guidance to offer White Coat Ceremony. The White Coat Ceremony project was made possible with a grant from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
