Senior nursing students cloak the freshman nursing students with a white coat, a symbol of a healthcare professional, illustrating and affirming that, yes, the educational path is challenging, but it is achievable. Each coat also includes a red pin, from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, which reads "Humanism and Excellence."
A few months ago, I saw and chatted with a lady at the zoo who was using what she called a nursing cloak. It completely covered her and baby and I'd love to have one, but I haven't had any luck finding one. I've nursed three children and I'm pregnant with #4, due in about three weeks, but that is the only time I've ever seen one. (She received hers as a gift.) Has anyone seen one of these? Can you tell me where to buy one? Thanks! :)B.

Nurse uniforms in the 1940s consisted of dresses, aprons and caps. Nurses also wore a pin that described their rank in the hierarchy of nurses. Nurse uniforms were standardized in England in 1948 when the National Health Service came into being. These dresses were calf-length and more practical and comfortable than the long tippet, or nursing cloak, that military nurses wore during the First World War.
