IOWA CITY — Bridget Bortscheller, of Pella, was among the 80 University of Iowa bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) students who celebrated a significant personal milestone earlier this month when they participated in the 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.
