The image of nursing: The handmaiden


What is nursing? I ask this in all seriousness. It is not practicing medicine...or at least it didn't used to be. I'm not saying that it's just blurs the boundaries a bit. Within nursing there are those that want to nurse and those that want to be called nurse but really aren't....and again that's no's just the way of the world. Nursing is in the state it is in because the leadership over the past 20 years has been non existent.. The diversity of nursing hasn't been recognised, appreciated, rewarded or utilised properly.....and that is why we are still seen as Dr's lackies.
