Vision for Neuroscience Nursing:
In this boisterous time for the healthcare, neuroscience nurses are holding unique position to lead the change. The key to the future success is in attitudinal transformation towards self as a practitioner that paves the way for the healthcare system progress. Professional competence and respect would bring new level of care to our communities and make hospitals a place, where patients get better, where they feel “cared for”. Some of the best initiatives in medicine were initiated by nurses and today is the best time to carry on traditions of Florence Nightingale.ed.
