From my personal experience, I have come to understand the occupation of nursing as both, science and art. It demands dedication, intelligence, education, and the commitment to life- long learning from all individuals who aspire to be great nurses. Nursing focuses on the patient and more importantly, their needs. These needs encompass more than the physical body; thus, we must look to the psychological, social, and spiritual needs of our patients. In doing so, nurses must be care-givers and educators - providing the necessary information, skills and knowledge, to their patients to allow for self-nurturance, well-being, and growth.

Research is needed to assist nurses in identifying those patients at risk so interventions can be put into place to empower the patient to realize a healthy lifestyle is achievable. Conclusion Nursing research has always been and continues to be directed toward patient care.
Nurse leaders should identify the needs of each employee. Rewards are very important for all generations. The lay public should create funds to stimulate nursing work and increase nursing education. Also the health institutions should change to computerized documentation, providing continues educational training to the workers.
