Nursing White Coat Ceremony [RSVP Required]

Friday, August 21, 2020 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The inaugural donning of a clinical white coat, often referred to as the “cloak of compassion,” is a rite of passage for healthcare professionals and symbolizes a commitment to patient-centered care.

UCF is proud to hold this annual event to welcome new undergraduate nursing students to the profession.

While we are unable to hold in-person events due to COVID-19, this year’s virtual White Coat Ceremony is still an important milestone in your nursing journey.

We hope you, and your loved ones, will join us in this time-honored tradition as you affirm your commitment to putting humanism at the core of your healthcare practice.


Friday, August 21 at 3 p.m. EDT
