School of Nursing Honor Code Pledge

  • I join my fellow students today to pledge my commitment to the highest ideal and academic standards of my education at the University of Louisville School of Nursing.
  • I recognize I am entering a profession in which I have responsibility for the lives of others.  With that responsibility comes accountability for my actions.
  • Therefore, as a representative of the School of Nursing, I pledge to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, accountability, confidentiality, and professionalism, in all my written work, spoken words, actions and interactions with patients, families, peers and faculty.
  • I pledge to work together with my peers and to support one another in the pursuit of excellence in our nursing education and to report unethical behavior.
  • I will work to safeguard the health and welfare of clients who have placed their trust in me and will advocate for the client's best interest.
  • I recognize that these responsibilities do not end with graduation, but are a lifelong endeavor.
