Nursing Identity

Nursing has its own identity as a health profession, hence, due recognition needs to be given to the role and contribution of Nursing personnel to health care services in the hospital and the community.

Nursing identity should be reflected in all planning papers, documents, and policy statements of government and non-government organisations with a view to strengthening development of Nursing, otherwise, this sector of the health system gets neglected and status of the Nursing service gets further diminished.

Nursing should not be designated as "paramedical", nor should its identity be lost under the term "health workers".

Nursing is supported by auxiliaries. The term "Nursing personnel" can be used to collectively designate a wide variety of workers of the Nursing team, both professionals and Nursing auxiliaries.
