Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management, and education are also key nursing roles.
This is the definition of a Registered Nurse in Massachusetts. It was posted on their website (at least that's where I got the copy last February).
Definition - Registered Nurse
Registered Nurse is the designation given to an individual who is licensed to practice professional nursing, holds ultimate responsibility for direct and indirect nursing care, is a graduate of an approved school for professional nursing, and is currently licensed as a Registered Nurse pursuant to M.G.L. c. 112. Included in such responsibility is providing nursing care, health maintenance, teaching*, counseling, planning and restoration for optimal functioning and comfort, of those they serve.
Sorry my mistake thought you just wanted a definition of nursing not a particular one. :chuckle
