Bethany J. Baker, BSN, RN, likely first Deaf nurse in Florida, graduates!


"AHHHHH I AM TRUBIZ A NURSE!!!!!! I am more than likely the very FIRST Deaf nurse in Florida! They said it cannot be done; it was DONE! Like VP Harris said, I may be the first but I won’t be the last! I officially graduated from my nursing program tonight and here’s to my future as a nurse."

Bethany Baker graduated from the School of Nursing at the University of North Florida. On Facebook, she announced the news and repeated the Florence Nightingale Pledge in American Sign Language (ASL) .

"Hello everyone!

I will grab this time to state the Florence Nightingale Pledge for nursing: I do solemnly pledge myself, to practice my profession faithfully, do all in my power to elevate the standards of my profession, and to dedicate myself to the welfare of those committed to my care. Thank you for all of your support and belief in me as I went through the nursing program. Now, you are looking at Bethany J. Baker, BSN, RN. I love you all!"

So proud of you Bebe!!!
