Nurse Safety Pledge

Please read the following Nurse Safety Pledge and sign your name and local at the bottom.

Nurse Safety Pledge

I, [Nurse Name], am a nurse. I strive to live up to my professional standards of practice and provide the highest level of patient care.

Physical assault, sexual assault, bullying and aggression are not an accepted part of my job. I deserve to return from work every day, safe and sound, and I should not live in fear of my workplace.

I pledge to take a stand against workplace violence. I will report it when I see it. I will work with my colleagues and employers to uproot it from the workplace and I will not accept it as a part of my job.
