Area students receive career white coats PDF Print E-mail

The University of Nebraska Medical Center recently held White Coat ceremonies in Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney, Scottsbluff and Norfolk to recognize 603 new students in pharmacy, nursing, medicine, dentistry and allied health. In a symbolic ceremony, students donned white coats signifying the beginning of their health career and took an oath of professionalism.
Among the recipients were Lance Wilson of Grant, from the College of Pharmacy in Omaha; Juliana Johnson of Grant, from the College of Nursing Kearney Division and Katherine Friesen of Wallace from the School of Allied Health Professions in Omaha.
The white coats were paid for in part with donations from UNMC alumni and faculty, the University of Nebraska Foundation and the College of Dentistry Development Fund.
