What is Nursing?
Nursing includes the promotion and optimization of health for individuals of all ages and in all settings, by assessing and monitoring patients to determine their healthcare needs. Nurses provide direct care, coordinate with other health care professionals, explain procedures and treatments, and empower patients by teaching them how to care for themselves.
Who can benefit from Nursing?
Any individual can benefit from nursing care if they are ill, disabled, injured, or not at optimal health. Individuals who are diabetic or need palliative care can also benefit from nursing services.
