Position Description

From the Paper:

"Human beings, their environment, health and the nursing profession possess a complex relationship where each cannot be neglected nor overemphasized. The author believes that the nursing profession is both an art and a science. Both of these are manifested in the humanistic, yet scientific grounding of interventions that aim to produce the best available evidence. Humanistic is used in the sense that many diseases can be explained by the many disciplines in the health sciences and treated accordingly; however, the nurse professional must bear in mind that it is not always sufficient to address the physical illness apart from the patient's social environment and mental state."
