Carthage’s Nursing Program’s Class of 2021 will be recognized at the third annual White Coat Ceremony. Though these ceremonies are fairly common for medical schools, they are relatively new rituals for nursing. Carthage has continued this meaningful tradition for the past three years.

The White Coat Ceremony represents nursing students’ completion of their pre-clinical work and their transition to the intense clinical learning necessary to become a professional nurse. Students will receive their white coats from their professors in front of their family, friends, and significant others. The ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 in A. F. Siebert Chapel, with light refreshments being served beginning at 9:30 a.m. Please join us to celebrate these students’ great achievements in Carthage’s Nursing Program!
