White coats have been a part of healthcare for almost a century, although the ceremonies are much more recent. The white coat symbolizes caring, compassion and professionalism. This ceremony is an opportunity to welcome freshmen into the profession of nursing. As a part of their freshmen experience, students shadow a professional nurse in their home community. Each coat has a Clemson School of Nursing badge. The white coat and university identification badge distinguishes students from volunteers and visitor. If you are interested in having a Clemson student shadow you. Please contact the School of Nursing.
