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.
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. 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).
