Nurses Assistant Pledge and Hippocratic Oath
The Nurses Assistant Pledge
And Hippocratic Oath
I earnestly promise to myself, God and the presence of this assembly, to diligently, under the supervision of a licensed nurse, provide basic nursing care to ensure the safety, comfort, personal hygiene, and protection of patients/residents in a licensed long-term, intermediate, acute care facility or as a Home Health aide.
I will refrain from performing any nursing services that require a professional nursing license. I will do all within my power to maintain and raise the standards of Nurse’s
Aide health care practices, and will hold in confidence all patients/residents committed to my keeping. With respect, dignity, and commitment I will administer care to the patients/residents delegated to me. With fidelity will I endeavor to aid the nurses in their work and devote myself to the welfare of those residents/patients committed to my care.
