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.
