I promise to care for the sick with all the skill I possess, no matter what their race, creed, colour, political or social status, sparing no effort to conserve life, alleviate pain and promote health

I promise to respect at all times the dignity of the patient in my charge.

I promise to hold in confidence all personal information entrusted to me.

I promise to keep my knowledge and skill at the professional level and to give the highest standard of nursing care to my patients.

I promise to carry out intelligently and loyally medical instructions given to me.

I promise that my personal life shall at all times bring credit to my profession.

I promise to share in the responsibility of other professions and citizens for promoting health locally, nationally and internationally.

So, help me God
