The Health Carer’s Oath

"The Nightingale Pledge"

A modern version based on the "Nightingale Pledge", and further modified by John Voce RHC.

I solemnly pledge to co-operate faithfully with other members of health care teams. I will not do anything evil or malicious; I will not knowingly deliver any harmful drug or health care intervention; nor assist in any malpractice.
I will not reveal any confidential information that may come to my knowledge in the course of my work.
I also pledge myself to do all in my power to raise the standards and prestige of professional health care practice.
May my work-life be oriented to carrying out 'care giving' to a high standard akin to the 'Hands On' basic nursing role as first defined by Florence Nightingale.
