Make a Difference in the Lives of Others

Read Daria's Story

Nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system. Caring for the sick is only one aspect of what a nurse does.

Today’s registered nurse (R.N.) works to:

  • Promote health
  • Prevent disease
  • Help patients and their families cope with illness, emergencies and long-term disease
  • Save lives

Nurses relate to people of all backgrounds and cultures. They act as advocates and health educators for patients, families, and communities.
