The white coat is an important symbol in health care. For nursing, this is the moment when you pledge yourself to patient-centered care. It is my hope that you will always look back on this moment in history, when you made the decision to put the needs of your patients above all else during a time when our country and world were fraught with uncertainty.
While we regret we were unable to host an in-person ceremony, it is our distinct honor to celebrate your continuing journey with this virtual White Coat Ceremony. Please remember how proud we are for your commitment to Gator Nursing and for your resilience this year.
