What is Nursing?
Nursing is a healthcare profession that focuses on the protection and promotion of health, prevention of illness, alleviation of suffering, and advocacy in the care of individuals and families. What sets it apart from medicine is nursing's focus on the individual and the family, not just the presenting health problem.
Nurses that complete a national licensing exam, in addition to a school's nursing program, are called registered nurses (RN's). A licensed practical nurse (also called a registered practical nurse or RPN) works under an RN.
Nursing is related to medicine, social work, psychiatry, psychology, and any other discipline that focuses on people's physical and mental health.
