Students from the Georgia Southern University School of Nursing chat after donning their white coats during the University's inaugural White Coat Ceremony on Friday, Sept. 19 at the Performing Arts Center.

More than twenty years later, nurses are now a part of the tradition.“Being chosen to participate in the inaugural White Coat Ceremony acknowledges the stellar reputation that the School of Nursing programs at Georgia Southern University have at the national level,” said Jean Bartels, Ph.D., former AACN president and the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Georgia Southern University. “This ceremony places the School of Nursing in elite company and recognizes the program for its historically strong curriculum and accomplished graduates.”
