Nursing is an essential profession in the healthcare sector and has a long history of providing health care to individuals, families, and the community across all health care settings. Nursing involves a wide scope of practice, and a commitment to providing services that benefit individuals and the community, and respect human dignity. The nursing field is often described as fast-paced, challenging, and rewarding. Nurses and midwives make up the largest group of registered health professionals in the country. They work collaboratively with other health workers and can complete additional qualifications to become endorsed or to specialise in areas of nursing.
