The unique experiences of life influence people to develop as individuals equipped with the capacity to value, nurture, love, and creatively respond to situations. I believe that nursing fulfills a mission of assisting patients through the development and adaptation processes of life. Nurses are an integral part of the health care team that makes provisions for effective utilization of human, scientific, technological, and economic resources. Nurses use tools of communication, caring, research, critical thinking, and professionalism to promote health, prevent disease in people and their environments, and care for individuals across the life span in various stages of illness despite the increasing complexity of the health care system.
