Florence Nightingale Pledge Quoted By “Night Nurse” Barbara Stanwyck, who so brilliantly blays the part of the night nurse in the Warner Bros. bicture by the same name, now at the considers nursing : woman’s noblest profession. She is deeply impressed by the pledge made by all nurses at graduation, the words by the great pioneer in this branch of human service, Florence Nightingale. “I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. “I will do all in my power to elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.” Star of “Night Nurse Calls Nursing Finest Pursuit for Women Barbara Stanwyck, Coming To Strand In Warner Bros. T hrilling Drama Tells Why She Believes That Nursing Is Highest Art (Advance—Plant 6 Days Before) “Nursing is more than a profession,” says Barbara Stanwyck star of “Night Nurse,” the Warner Bros. production which comes to the..... Theatres; . 3.3. next. “It is an institution which amounts almost to a religion and contains many of the characteristics of marriage for one enters it for better or for worse. Like all other services to suffering humanity, it requires certain sacrifices of personal liberty which raises it to the highest level. “A beginner, has to go through a wearing apprenticeship. Once she enters the service there are the]. strictest rules to observe rules which practically cut her off from the outside world. “She has only one hour to herself each afternoon, and evenings after seven. That allows her but three hours in the evening, for she must be in bed and lights out by ten o'clock. One night a week she is given the privilege of staying out until twelve. “Any infraction of rules carries severe penalties—night service being one of them. The very best insight into what nursing means can be had from the Florence Nightingale pledge which they take upon graduation. Its text is as follows: “I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to bass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievon and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. “I will do all in my power to elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters A committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.” All of these details even to the reciting of the pledge by a graduating class is brought out in “Night Nurse,” which besides containing an interesting delineation of the various stages of nursehood, combines a novel love story interwoven with a plot of intrigue and mystery.
