Nursing is the care and nurturing of healthy and ill people, individually or in groups and communities. The American Nurses Association identifies four essential features of contemporary nursing practice: 1) Attention to the full range of human experiences and responses to health and illness without restriction to a problem-focused orientation; 2) Integration of objective data with knowledge gained from an understanding of the patient or group’s subjective experience; 3) Application of scientific knowledge to the processes of diagnosis and treatment; and 4) Provision of a caring relationship that facilitates health and healing.
