Answer: Man has three duties -duty to God, duty to parents and duty to mankind. A nurse is such a person who dedicates her whole life to the service of the people who are injured and wounded. The field she renders her dedicated service is called nursing. The job of a nurse is very noble. It enables a person to serve the suffering humanity. To be a nurse the minimum academic qualification is S. S. C in our country. Moreover, one has to study for three years in the nurses’ Training Centre and this is followed by one year’s practical training in any Medical College Hospital. This will lead one to have a (B. Sc. Degree) in nursing. After completing the course successfully nurses are employed in hospitals and clinics. The job of a nurse is very tiring. She is a doctor only prescribes medicines but it is a nurse who helps the patients in taking medicines. A nurse is very vigilant. She renders her heartfelt service to mitigate the agonies and sufferings of the patients admitted to hospitals and clinics. She shares the sorrows and sufferings of the patients. The importance of a nurse beggars’ description. Hospitals and clinics can not go even a single day without a nurse. But it is a matter of great regret that a nurse is not held in due respect. So, steps should be taken to ensure due to social and financial status for the nurses so that they can keep the torch of Florence Nightingale ever illuminated.
