Knoxville native participates in White Coat Ceremony

IOWA CITY — Brooke Willardson of Knoxville was among the 72 University of Iowa bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) students who celebrated a significant personal milestone earlier this fall when they participated in the UI College of Nursing’s biannual White Coat Ceremony.

The donning of the white coat symbolizes a nursing student’s transition to clinical nursing course work and live patient care. The recently white-coated BSN students officially joined a college with a rich tradition of more than 120 years of nursing and a mass of alumni who have impacted health care across the country and around the world.

In addition to receiving their new attire, the UI’s newest BSN students also are the beneficiaries of a major renovation to the college’s primary facility.
