The traditional capping ceremony for the graduates of the nursing and midwife programs of the MUG Faculty of Health Sciences took place on June 21st 2013. The graduates, their families and friends, MUG authorities and staff as well as special guests (representatives of the local nursing and midwife chamber, the authorities and the University Clinical Centre authorities) gathered in the auditorium. Students wearing traditional clothing opened the ceremony by bringing lit candles to the auditorium, symbolizing the life entrusted to the care of nurses and midwifes. The ceremony was conducted by dr Janina Książek, Deputy Dean of the Subfaculty of Nursing. The caps worn by the graduates symbolize belonging to their new profession, service to people and obligation to maintain traditions of these beautiful yet difficult professions. The oath repeated by out loud by the graduates is an introduction to the Nurse and Midwife Code of Professional Ethics of the Republic of Poland. In addition, the graduates sang the Nursing Anthem.
