Nursing students from the School of Nursing at Platt College take the Nightingale Pledge at their recent graduation/pinning ceremony at a hotel near Denver.
The Nightingale Pledge was once taken by all new professional nurses upon first entering the nursing profession. It was named after the famous nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, who was a championed English nurse. Nightingale laid the foundations of modern nursing with her nursing school at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London (now part of King’s College in London).
