From the Paper:

"We have all seen the depiction of nurses long ago. They wore their little white caps and they changed bedpans, comforted families and opened the drapes in hospital rooms letting the light in. Beyond that we were not really aware of their presence other than at injection time. Fast-forward to today and nurses have changed tremendously. Today's nurse is extremely well educated, involved in patient care and interacts with the medical staff, social programs and the families of the patient on a regular basis. The field of nursing has grown and changed to the point it is now divided into specialty types much like the field of doctors has done. Family practice nursing is a specialty that often dovetails with family practice or general practice physician work."
