Description: The tradition of ‘’Lighting the Lamp’’ ceremony serves as an icon in Nursing from Florence Nightingale who is known as the founder of modern day Nursing. The burning of the Lamp represents the continual seeking of knowledge. It is also symbolic of the Light or enlightenment that accompanies knowledge. This is celebrated each year the day when the students start with their Clinical postings. On this occasion Holy Mass is celebrated in the Hospital chapel to seek blessings from the Almighty God to start a new life as nursing Professionals. As a tradition the lamps are handed over to the students by Senior Nursing Personnel. This is followed Nightangle’s Pledge being led by the Principal.
