White Coat Ceremony at UIC College of Nursing

Since 2013, the White Coat Ceremony has been an early milestone in the undergraduate and master’s program for nursing students at UIC. Held each September, the ceremonial cloaking each new student in a College of Nursing lab coat symbolizes his or her transition into nursing education. By accepting the coat, the student affirms a commitment to becoming a professional nurse who provides compassionate and high-quality care.
