An ambulance came wailing down the street toward the hospital—another patient demanding immediate attention sped to their hospital for help. Students and faculty paused in their rehearsal to listen to the sound. 

“I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully…” Sue Packard dropped her eyes to look at the others in her class. Tomorrow evening they would take the vows and then they would find nursing a reality at last, a dream come true. 

Little did Sue know what the future held in store for her: tragedy with patients; death of a loved one and life that seemed to have lost its meaning; trouble and triumph with her fellow students; blossoming love and the leading of God—all in the life of a student nurse.
