I will graduate from practical nursing program at New River Community College, Dublin, VA, at the end of July. I was told I could not participate in the pinning (graduation) ceremony unless I wore a white nursing dress and white stockings. I requested to be allowed to wear a white uniform top and white uniform pants. My request was denied, stating that the administration said I must comply with the tradition.
