Our cover story this week is on the vital nursing in health care. The definition of nursing is the job or skill of caring for people who are ill or injured. Nursing has over the years fundamentally been established as an important and integral part of health delivery. It may be said that nursing is now considered as a noble profession all over the world.

Apart from being a noble profession, nursing is a specialist’s job. On the one hand, it involves commitment, compassion and care of the highest level; on the other hand it demands specialised skill sets, quality training and constant upgradation of knowledge. The care and comfort a nurse provides is like the ways of nature – a unique blend of empathy and absolute sensitivity. A nurse lends their healing touch at a time when we are at our worst-helpless and very resentful about it. It takes the highest sense of commitment to be able to serve in such a condition. And a nurse is oriented towards doing just that.

Call them angels in white and in comfortable shoes, or one of the few blessings while ill, nurses are well-nurses, one of a kind, a few in a billion. However, in the back drop of the above, when the questions of competency of the nurses in medical profession arise, we can say that as a third world nation, whatever problems we have in the competency level in other profession, we have the same problems in our nurses.

What needs to be done to raise their competency levels are; adequate education, training and practice. It is high time for caring for them who care for us – in our sickness and debility.
