What is Nursing?

Nursing blends expertise in science and technology with the practice of caring and compassion. Nurses promote health, prevent disease, and help individuals, families, and communities cope with illnesses in a myriad of professional settings from hospitals, long-term care centers, and doctor’s offices to schools, research facilities, rehabilitation centers and homes. Nurses work closely with doctors and other health care professionals, and serve as the advocates for patients and families.

The kind of work that you do will depend on the educational path you choose. There are more than 100 different specializations in Nursing.
