Nursing is a profession within the Health Care Sector focused on the care of individuals, families and communities so they may attain maintain or recover optimal health and quality of life. Nurses care for individuals of all ages and all cultural backgrounds who are healthy and ill in a holistic manner based on the individuals physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual, social and spiritual needs. The profession combines physical sciences, social science and technology in caring for those individuals. Indian Nursing Council believes in concept of Health laid down by World Health Organisation (WHO) “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” In order to provide qualitative Nursing Care there is a need to train nurses effectively to work as a team member of health care delivery system. It is therefore their training should involve positive attitudes, knowledge, skills, professional expertise, latest trends in health care and health care needs of the community and the country as a whole. As per the definition of Virginia Avenel Henderson ” The Unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge.” As per the International Council of Nurses” Nursing encompasses autonomous and collabora• tive care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disa• bles and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management and education are also key nursing roles.” Indian Nursing Council recognized that basic nursing education is a formally recognized programme of students providing a broad and sound foundation in the behavioural, life and nursing sciences for the practice of nursing for a leadership role and for the post basic education in specialties for advanced nursing practice. The Country believes that this basic course in nursing should prepare nurses for occupying first level positions in nursing in all kinds of health care settings. The Council recognizes that nursing is a profession which is influenced by advances in science and technology, it believes that skills in all aspects of communication are also essential learning and for the practice of nursing. The Council also recognizes that the nature of nursing is such that a substantial portion of learning of the study is acquired in clinical field(s) of practice. It further recognised the interdependence of nursing to allied professions and occupations in prevention of diseases, promotion, maintenance and restoration of health.
