Nursing Defined

What does it mean to be a nurse? What does a nurse do? Hear nurses explain the extraordinary depth of their profession.

The dictionary defines nurses as “people who care for the sick or infirm”. This barely scratches the surface of what it truly means to be a nurse. NurseJournal is celebrating EVERYTHING that nurses are, while examining the remarkable breadth and depth of the profession.

We started by inviting nurses from various backgrounds and life stages to broaden the definition of “nurse” in their own words. See what they had to say.
