The Seal

The caduceus, surmounted by two wings and entwined with two snakes was carried by Heralds and Ambassadors as a badge of office and a mark of inviolability. It was adopted by the medical profession as a symbol of healing.

Nursing brings about a healing to patients not only through assisting doctors and administering medications but by giving total care to every patient. Every aspect, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, mental or social, is considered in the process of healing. The caduceus, therefore, represents high standards of care and healing to every client.
The Nightingale’s lamp was a symbol of light in times of darkness, when death during the war was soaring at a very high rate and was inevitable. In the modern times, the lamp is a sign of hope in times of despair especially when a person is afflicted by a deliberating disease of hopelessness.

The red symbolizes the color of the blood which signifies life. Nursing is committed to caring towards the preservation of life. Red also symbolizes passion, a burning passion to care for others irregardless of age, sex, race and social status. It is a characteristic that the college aims to develop among the students.
