No, there is no white coat ceremony. That's for pharmacy, medical, and physician assistant programs. Whitecoat ceremony was initially for medical school in 1993 when the medical students start clinical and recite the Hippocratic oath. Our school is not that big, small campus and class setting. I don't care for it, more money to spend when you shouldn't have to in my opinion. I know that I have some of the best classmates to lean on when I need motivation so far. We are a cohort of 20-25 students, and you will see a mix of MSN-FNP or MSN for educator or MSN executive in and out. It's awesome to see what each person's background is like and what they bring to the table.
I will have exactly 1 year to graduate from July 30, 2021. Who's counting? I cannot believe how fast time was flying since November 2020, when I started researching for my schools. Dr. Thomas is the best!
