Nursing has been called the oldest of the art and the youngest of the profession. As such it has gone through many stages and has been an integral part of social movements. Nursing has been involved in the existing culture, shaped by it and yet being developed by it. Nurses played critical roles and responsibilities during the Covid -19 pandemic. They will continue to be at the front line for patient care in hospitals and community. The future will see great advantages in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness and disease with increasing demand for healthcare and health information. Nurses will be the preferred care providers and entry points for diverse services. At Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital, we believe the NURSE plays a pivotal role in enhancing health of every patient that comes to the hospital thus making our hospital the preferred choice for healing and good health.
The demands associated with nursing practice require a broad knowledge base and critical thinking abilities along with competent skills. The focus of nursing is shifting towards viewing patients as collaborative beneficiaries rather than passive recipient of care. Nursing will require psychological, social and physical skills and certain attitudes which are rooted in knowledge base for decision making, critical thinking abilities and skills in the technological aspects of care. We at Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital are planning to have our 4th Nursing Conclave specifically addressed to bring about Nurses Contribution in Healthcare and to enforce the message that Nurses are the Unstoppable Force in healthcare system.
