Nursing

Nursing is a calling to serve humankind and to make a difference in the world. Most people start nursing because they care about other people and because they like helping people.

It is however important to understand that nursing is not always an easy task, but it is very rewarding and enjoyable. It feels great when you can reach out and touch someone in need and help someone regain their health. It feels fantastic to be able to bring a new baby into the world and to make use of all the latest technology. It also feels wonderful to care for the young and old and make the dying person more comfortable.

Nurses are important in communities too. They are often looked upon as the educated and are therefore asked to take the lead in community projects and initiatives. Nurses can and do make a difference in the world.

Yes, nurses sometimes care for people with infectious diseases. Nurses are trained how to protect themselves and others to minimize the risk. It is a legal requirement that employers put protective measures in place but it is also required that employees comply with these measures and do everything in their power to prevent injury or infections. In the event that a nurse is exposed to such a health risk, they will be treated immediately, and the necessary policies and procedures will be implemented.
