COLUMBIA, KY - The science and art of nursing was extolled Sunday evening, October 27, 2013, at Lindsey Wilson College as the latest cohort of nurses was accepted into the college's nursing program.
The 27 students were part of the "Ceremony of Blessing & Transition," held Sunday, October 27, in V.P. Henry Auditorium. The students received a white coat to symbolize their official entrance into the program after their hands were blessed by LWC Assistant Chaplain Carol Weddle.

The students who received their white coats Sunday, October 27, 2013, in "Ceremony of Blessing & Transition," at the Lindsey Wilson College School of Nursing were:
