I am orienting a group of brand new graduate nurses. One of my questions for them is going to be, "What is your primary function as a nurse?" I have my own opinions and ideas but I would be interested in input from others. As nurses, what do you think our primary function is?
Quote from schooldays
That about covers it, because it encompasses the nursing process and the professionalism that should be part of nursing. But I don't think you will find that as the main point in an orientation, because a real patient advocate operates as the independent licensed professional they truly are, and not an obedient employee.
I agree with operating as an independent licensed professional.
