Get to Know Platt Student Nurses Association President

Meet Platt Student Nurses Association President Sarah Cernik, a student at Platt College since January of 2013. Initially when Sarah started nursing school, she remembers feeling lost and shy in the school. She didn’t know anyone at the College, but over the past two years, she has been able to integrate well into classes and has made friends, friends-she shares a lot in common with-a love of nursing. Sarah says the best part of the program for her are her clinical experiences and her goal is to be a Neonatal ICU nurse or OR nurse.

The Time Honored Tradition of the Nightingale Pledge

Nursing students take the Nightingale Pledge at their recent graduation/pinning ceremony. 

The Nightingale Pledge was once taken by all new professional nurses upon first entering the nursing profession.

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).

Platt College is a place of learning that focuses on quality undergraduate education; in fact, it's our mission. We are glad that you have chosen to peruse our website firsthand.  We think the friendliness of our campus community and rich heritage of higher education for more than 27 years will become apparent as you begin to consider Platt College.  You'll quickly see why Platt College is one of Colorado’s most easily accessible four-year, private institutions. We are committed to student success and we believe success is best fostered in an environment of mutual respect, caring, and high expectations.

We like to keep our classes small and our value big. We believe with dedication, perseverance, and hard work, each of you may realize your goal of becoming a professional nurse.

The faculty seeks to instill in students a commitment to life-long learning and a passion for professional nursing practice. It is our goal to never lose sight of these goals as we assist students in progressing through our curriculum.

The School of Nursing at Platt College is a distinctive community. Our decisions and the way we approach day-to-day challenges are based on our core values of diversity, excellence in the learning process, ethics and integrity, personal growth and community. The competencies of our nursing program serve as the road map on a journey to becoming a professional nurse and it is our job to help develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that serve students in areas that have become expectations for the profession of nursing within the 21st century.

At Platt College, we challenge students to be open to learning all there is to know about the nursing process, nursing informatics, evidence-based practice, professional standards, and inter-professional communication and collaboration.

When students graduate from Platt College, it is our hope that graduates have grown personally and professionally and that their ability to value the role of the professional nurse and the impact upon individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations is forever changed.
