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.


In the keynote address, Dr. Phil Aaron of Columbia told the students that when they graduate in spring 2016 with a bachelor of science degree in nursing, they will need to practice art and science.

"Nursing in its entirety is as much art as it is science," he said. "I submit that up until now you've been studying the science of nursing. During the next part of your study you will be combining the art with the science of nursing."

Aaron also reminded the students of their ethical responsibility to serve all people.

"We need to build our society so everyone, include our poor, have a fair chance and are not in an unreasonable bind toward their health," he said. "Nurses and physicians must continue to lead the way in delivering high-quality services to patients and demanding that all patients deserve a chance for a healthy life."

Aaron told the students that one way they might consider to serve society after graduating from LWC with a career in the military. That's why the students also heard from Pam King of Columbia, a nurse practitioner who has served for more than 25 years in the Kentucky National Guard.

"Being in the military gives you an opportunity to have an even larger impact and work with a lot of people," said King, who is a lieutenant colonel.

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:
  • Cheyenne Bolin of Danville, KY
  • Wendy Castrejon of Russell Springs, KY
