This paper discusses the nursing profession and calls for more support for today's nurses. The author explains that the rewards of nursing are most often not monetary but rather from the fulfillment that comes from taking good care of patients. The challenges that nurses face in their work are highlighted and the paper advocates that as demands on nurses continue to rise, they need more support from institutions to sustain their quality of caring.

From the Paper:

"The rewards of nursing lie and extend beyond financial compensation. They provide a human reward which is difficult to quantify but very easy to quantify. It has to do with caring for human beings, and doing so with quality, as there are different levels of quality with which any task can be done. The quality of care doesn't only depend on the ability to keep patients live, it also enables a patient to live with dignity. Considering that the patients are by nature incapacitated, this is no small task."
