Smith honored at White Coat ceremony

Melanie Smith of Powell, a nursing major at Youngstown State University, was among 96 sophomores to receive “white coats” at a ceremony Jan. 23 in Kilcawley Center on the YSU campus.

“The white coat ceremony is a formal welcome into the nursing profession signifying the transition to clinical learning,” said Nancy Wagner, chair of YSU’s Department of Nursing. “Beyond nursing skills and technology, the white coat reminds our students to be kind and compassionate patient advocates.”

White coat ceremonies are typically a tradition at medical schools, and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing is now promoting the ceremonies as nursing students transition into their clinical studies.
