National Nurses Week, When the lights Go Out & Voting in the Time of COVID19

May 6-12 is national Nurses Week, culminating on May 12 on the birthday of the late Florence Nightingale, seen as the founder of the modern day nursing profession. Kevin Krausman is a nurse at Mary Greeley Medical Center. He gives voice to the spirit of courageous and compassionate service of those who enter the nursing profession. He also illustrates why the American Nurses Credentialing Center has given Mary Greely Medical Canter Magnet recognition – the highest honor and the gold standard in nursing.

Nightingale Pledge:

Before God and those assembled here, I solemnly pledge;
To adhere to the code of ethics of the nursing profession;
To co-operate faithfully with the other members of the nursing team and to carryout [sic] faithfully and to the best of my ability the instructions of the physician or the nurse who may be assigned to supervise my work;
I will not do anything evil or malicious and I will not knowingly give any harmful drug or assist in malpractice.
I will not reveal any confidential information that may come to my knowledge in the course of my work.
And I pledge myself to do all in my power to raise the standards and prestige of the practical nursing;
May my life be devoted to service and to the high ideals of the nursing profession.
