In 2020, MCCN hosted its Inaugural Gold-AACN White Coat Ceremony for Nursing. This ceremony was made possible with a grant from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation to support the Gold-American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) White Coat Ceremony for Nursing. The White Coat Ceremony signifies a rite of passage for sophomore students and emphasizes the importance of compassionate patient care at the start of training. The White Coat Ceremony reinforces the importance of a human connection as students begin their journey in health care. The White Coat Ceremony represents a milestone for nursing students as they transition from academic to clinical studies, their journey with direct patient care. At this event, students will officially don the MCCN clinical uniform for the first time and receive two pins: one engraved with a lamp reminiscent of the lamp carried by the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale and the Arnold P. Gold Foundation pin inscribed “Keeping Healthcare Human.”
