Stacia Moreno beamed with pride as a faculty member cloaked her with a white lab coat at the George Washington University’s Virginia Science and Technology Campus on Thursday evening.

“I’m just so excited,” she said while shaking School of Nursing Dean Jean Johnson’s hand.

Ms. Moreno was among 62 students in the School of Nursing’s accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program who participated in the school’s inaugural White Coat Ceremony. The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AANC) provided funding for 100 nursing schools, including GW SON, to pilot similar events around the country.
