Abstract

Written in 1893, the Nightingale Pledge reflected the opinion of a small group of nurses, physicians and lay women about the required characteristics of American nursing. This Pledge serves as a professional mission statement, one that truly reflects the deep-seated vision and values of nursing. A modern analysis of this classic work creates a frame of reference to measure nursing practice.
