The Nightingale Oath ceremony is an event that pledges to practice the love of life and the spirit of service. It is based on the nightingale's dedication to caring for the injured while relying on a single candle during the Crimean War.

 Florence Nightingale, the protagonist of the Nightingale Oath, is a 19th-century British nurse, writer, and statistician. Today, when speaking of a nightingale, the expression “white angel” comes to mind, but during the Crimean War, her nickname was “a woman with a lantern”. When news of the Crimean War broke out in 1853 and the wounded soldiers were dying on the battlefield, Nightingale was nicknamed by people who were impressed by the appearance of Nightingale, who took care of the patient and took over night care every night. As a result, the patient's mortality rate drops from 42 percent to 2 percent. After the Crimean War, she became the first woman to receive a medal from the British king as a result of her various activities, including establishing a nursing system and establishing a nursing school.

Like a candle that brightens the world by burning oneself, I hope that it will be a place to learn the spirit of love, sacrifice, and service with a sense of responsibility, inheriting the spirit of the Nightingale, whose hope inspired courage to suffering patients
