Research Facts
The Florence Nightingale Pledge was composed by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at the old Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893. The pledge was created as an adaptation of the doctor's Hippocratic Oath. It was revised and slightly changed in 1935.
This pledge was recited at graduation ceremonies until the 1970s, when it was either changed or dropped completely, as nursing was an "autonomous profession" and the final line about loyalty to the physician did not match what nursing was truly striving towards, being loyalty to the patient, even in the face of opposition from the physician.

Ruth Dafoe Taylor (Donor)
“KGH School of Nursing.” Kingston General Hospital, 2019. Accessed 10 July 2019.
Research Facts
Ruth Dafoe Taylor, donor and author of personal message written in the card, was a member of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing Class of 1963.
The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was one of the first apprenticeship-based nursing training programs in Canada; began in 1886 in response to the increased focus on patient care in hospitals and the medical field; the program was meant to produce an educated and dedicated work force of nurses while also providing an affordable labour force for the hospital through on the job student training; the Ann Baillie Building, current home of the Museum of Healthcare at Kingston, originally served as a residence for the student nurses at KGH.
