Introduction:

 

Nursing is a profession within the healthcare sector focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities so that they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life. Nurses may be differentiated from other health care providers by their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice. Nurses practice in a wide diversity of practice areas with a different scope of practice and level of prescriber authority in each. Many nurses provide care within the ordering scope of physicians, and this traditional role has come to shape the historic public image of nurses as care providers. However, nurses are permitted by most jurisdictions to practice independently in a variety of settings depending on training level. In the postwar period, nurse education has undergone a process of diversification towards advanced and specialized credentials, and many of the traditional regulations and provider roles are changing. A. V. Institute of Nursing is Recognized by J&K Govt and all the courses are approved by Indian Nursing Council & Affiliated with PNRC Chandigarh.
