The nursing career is on built on achieving, regaining and maintaining the optimal health of individuals, families and communities. Nursing assistant skills are used to help residents or patients with activities of daily living (ADLs) and to provide bedside care under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Its modern definitions involve promoting individuals’ optimal health from birth to the last days of life. The American Nurses’ Association (1980) defined nursing as "the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to actual or potential health problems." Nursing diagnoses help in the planning, implementing, and evaluation of nursing care.

In pre- modern times, the religious as well as the military provide nursing services and this is still evident up to today. “Sisters” in Britain are those female nurses already at the senior level while the trend regaining its name in U.S. and in Canada is “Parish Nursing”. Within the religious community, it is basically their responsibility to provide health education and to be the mediating figure between the church community and the people who need assistance.

Nurses do acknowledge that their profession is essential in the society. Using knowledge on nursing research combined with the nurses’ code of moral conduct, the nursing practice involves altruistic behavior delineated in their professional rights and responsibilities and their mechanisms for public accountability. In almost every country, there are territorial, national or state boards assigned to regulate the entrance of the nurses to this career.

Nursing continually develops a wide body of knowledge an associated skills. If you want to become a professional nurse, there are a lot of educational paths to choose from though they all involve an extensive study of nursing theories which should be parallel to their various philosophical world views and a practice and training in clinical skills. These nursing theories guide the nurses in directing their activities so they can attain their goals of providing efficient service to the people.

It can be said that possibly the most wide- ranging health care professions is nursing. There are over 200 nursing specialties and sub- specialties encompassing care based on the needs of the patient from birth to death. For nurses who earned their specialization, they are issued voluntary certification which will signify their possession of expert knowledge. They often have a higher salary than those who are not certified and studies show that they patient are more satisfied with them and that they commit less patient- care- related errors.

There are a number of setting where nursing is practiced—hospitals, home visitations, school care, pharmaceutical research, and other settings. They can also be employed on ships and on the military. Sometimes, they also act as advisors on healthcare and even on insurance industries. Even on most unlikely place to find nurses which is at the law profession, they still are needed to review patient records in order to assure provision of adequate care in court.

A nurse assistant plays an important role in today’s hospital and extended care facilities. For the nurse to be able to focus on his or her tasks like care plans and nursing assessments, he needs a nurse assistant. A nurse assistant must have a comprehensive of the emergency procedures. They should remain calm even when faced with stressful situations. He must be well- drilled in CPR and must know how to start a Code Blue. He must not only be skilled in the actual performance of procedure but must also be observant of the patient’s condition and should report the information back to the nurse.
