When a baby is born in this world, the first touch the baby gets is that of a nurse. Nurse with a hand that nurtures, Nurse with a hand that heals.
Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals, families, groups and communities sick or well during all ages. Every aspect of health related sphere is included whether it is promotion of health, prevention of illness or care of sick, disabled or dying.
Nursing is a noble and blessed profession where opportunities to serve others come knocking at the doors every day. By sincere caring, a patient may forget your name, but will never forget how you made him feel during his sickness. Nurses are no more doctor’s assistants. Rather they are equally responsible and stake holders in patients treatment. The professional nurse provides holistic care with compassion, empathy and respect to clients. More of them are becoming independent nurse practitioners and Super specialists in their field. Nowadays, the scope for a nurse is varied and limitless. She may choose between education, research, clinical practice, management, administration, occupational, industrial or school health nursing.
