Nurses are respected, highly skilled health professionals who really make a difference to people's lives. The rewards of such work are immeasurable and the career options diverse. Nurses work in a wide variety of settings on every continent, from hospitals to schools to cruise ships. They work in busy emergency departments, they jump out of helicopters as members of retrieval teams and they care for those at that beginning and the end of their lives. Nurses are men and women who care, support and advise people with health concerns. The study of nursing encompasses a knowledge base that prepares graduates to deliver holistic care to all who require it. Nursing includes the study of core nursing skills and knowledge as well as bioethics, the legal basis of nursing practice, biological sciences, therapeutic communication, health promotion, education and nursing leadership.
