Kent State at Salem held its inaugural White Coat Ceremony for students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, signifying a rite of passage as they transition into the nursing field.
The 20 sophomore BSN students each received a white coat that will help establish their “professional identity” and coincides with the beginning of their clinical training.
In the southwest corner of South Dakota, on the Nebraska border and at the southern end of the Badlands, sits the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. It is home to the Ogalala Lakota Nation.
This fall, faculty and students from the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Kent State Salem traveled to the reservation in what has become an almost annual excursion. The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the trips over the last three years, which made this return visit quite significant for members of the group.
Until the final seconds of the contest, the winner of the seventh annual Kent State Columbiana County Classic basketball game between East Liverpool and Salem high schools was anyone’s guess.
