In this article, the input nursing had on the writer's academic evolution is discussed, both as an individual living in the society and as a future RN staff nurse. On the one hand, it made the writer change, adjust, and sometimes even correct his philosophy of nursing, as it made the writer completely aware of the immense importance treating the patient and his family has on the entire healing process. The writer concludes that indeed, academic preparation is important in the evolution and professional development of the individual. The writer maintains that it can change and improve one's perspective on certain issues, it can widen one's horizon to subjects and themes that had not been the focus of attention, and at the same time, it can help to take a stand on serious issues such as the right of people to decide on their death.
