  • The Nurse's Pin

    The design includes elements of the official seal of the college. The symbol of the lamp on the shield refers to Psalm 119:105
    "Your word is a lamp of my steps and a light for my path."

    The inscription Initium Sapientiae Timor Domini means
    The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

  • A Nurse's Prayer

    Dear Lord, please give the the strength
    To face the day ahead,
    Dear Lord, please give me the courage
    As I approach each hurting bed.

    Dear Lord, please give me the wisdom
    With every word I speak
    Dear Lord, give me the patience
    As I comfort the sick and weak.

    Dear Lord, please give me the assurance
    As the day slips into night
    That I have done the best I can
    That I have done what is right.
