Welcome to the Nursing Profession.

White Coat Ceremony

The White Coat Ceremony is a rite of passage for first year students in nursing that often takes place during the initial days of orientation. It serves to welcome students to nursing practice and elevate the value of humanism as the core of health care. It provides a powerful emphasis on compassion in combination with scientific excellence.

As a Nurse, dedicated to providing the highest quality care and services, I solemnly pledge that I will:

  • Consider the welfare of humanity and relief of suffering my primary concerns;
  • Act in a compassionate and trustworthy manner in all aspects of my care;
  • Apply my knowledge, experience, and skills to the best of my ability to assure optimal outcomes for my patients;
  • Exercise sound professional judgment while abiding by legal and ethical requirements;
  • Accept the lifelong obligation to improve my professional knowledge and competence;
  • Promote, advocate for, and strive to protect the health, safety, and rights of the patient.

With this pledge, I accept the duties and responsibilities that embody the nursing profession.  I take this oath voluntarily with the full realization of the responsibility with which I am entrusted by the public.
