Bharat Sevashram Sangha Hospital, School of Nursing Celebrated the fifth lamp-lighting ceremony on 07/03/2019. The new GNM nursing students of Bharat Sevashram Sangha Hospital took nursing oath by Lamp Lighting Ceremony and dedicating themselves to service of Patients.
Lamp-lighting is a tradition followed by all Nursing candidates to remind them of the noble traditions of their profession. This tradition commemorates the pioneer of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, who was seen in the dark alleys with a lamp while caring for the injured soldiers of the Crimean War. The lamp symbolizes the light that a nurse becomes to her patients and as a symbol of hope and comfort to those who are suffering. Graduates light this lamp as a commitment and they recite the Nursing pledge of service.
After taking the oath the students chanted Shubham Karoti Kalyanam stotram to offer prayer to the Lord and receive his blessings for dedicating their life to seva (selfless service).
