Nursing is a client-centered, information- and evidence-based, interdisciplinary profession that provides safe, quality health care. The focus of nursing is the client (individual, family, and groups). Nursing uses a holistic approach to meet the health needs of the client and involves the systematic collection of data and utilization of scientific research. The nurse collaborates with a client-centered team to provide a high standard of care that is effective, efficient, and protects clients and others from health and environmental hazards.
