Abstract

Professional nursing has its origins in man's fundamental need for health, and the primary focus of nursing education is on meeting these needs, while simultaneously fulfilling the expectations and needs of the aspirant nurse — a twofold, synergistic responsibility.
The caring function lies at the very heart of nursing practice — it is the magnetic force which attracts people to nursing and in the final analysis offers the greatest rewards and satisfactions.
