Approved schools of nursing



Nursing, as an integral part of the health care system, encompasses the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and care of physically ill, mentally ill, and disabled people of all ages, in all health care and other community settings. Nurses play so many different roles that it’s impossible to encompass it all in just one job title.
