Nursing is a healthcare profession that involves years of training and continued specialized education to care for patients in a variety of settings. Nurses are often the first healthcare professional that patients meet. They are a technical expert, an educator, a counselor and a resource for the family, using all senses to better care for a patient.
Nurses are the most trusted healthcare professionals. They are with patients throughout the continuum of life. Nurses are teacher, advocates, caregivers, critical thinkers and innovators. They do so much more than care for individuals; their presence 24/7 has transformed lives. Nursing is an honorable profession, and nurses are the heart and soul of the healthcare system.
