The breadth and depth of nursing
from By Keith Carlson
The nursing profession has grown astronomically since the days of Florence Nightingale. While we may have once served as handmaidens to the whims and needs of god-like physicians, the definition of what it means to practice as a nurse is light-years away from the era of our diminutive status and relative servitude. We nurses know that our scope of practice and autonomy have grown by leaps and bounds, and a plethora of specialties and practice settings has opened doors of opportunity hitherto unknown by our older nursing colleagues.
