White coats signify a bright future after nursing students’ ceremony

The Class of 2017 in Towson University’s nursing program donned their white coats for the first time officially during the College of Health ProfessionsDepartment of Nursing‘s first White Coat ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 20.

CHP Dean Lisa Plowfield; Kathleen Ogle, interim department chair; Assistant Professor Michelle Kirwan; and guest speaker and nursing alumnus Ben Labovitz ’09 spoke to the students, each offering professional anecdotes and lessons and a warm welcome.

As part of the ceremony, the nearly 100 students stood and recited The Nurse’s Pledge before being called by name to the front of the room to ceremoniously don their white coats. Each student also signed large placards of the pledge, which will hang in TU’s campuses in Towson and Hagerstown.
