In this article, the writer discusses that the field of nursing means different things to different people. The writer notes that some do not see how important nurses are in the daily running of a hospital or doctor's office, while others feel that nurses are so valuable that medicine could hardly continue without them. The writer believes that nursing is a noble and interesting occupation and that it is also one of the more rewarding and worthwhile pursuits that anyone could have. The beliefs of B. Neuman regarding nursing are discussed in comparison to the writer's own ideas. The writer concludes that nursing is both an art and a science based on caring; it is the training of a human to care for another human through knowledge and skills that meet the holistic needs of that human.
