Original "Florence Nightingale Pledge"
I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practise my profession faithfully.
I shall abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and shall not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.
I shall do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling.
I shall be loyal to my work and devoted towards the welfare of those committed to my care
We are not expected to work in unsafe conditions without PPE
We are expected to be devoted to those in our care,not being blasted with phone calls,being filled with guilt because the floor is short staffed.
We should be advocates of our profession,safe staffing ratios, equipment, and people before profits.
If you cant go to work because you are sick or feel it is not safe......it is okay.
