- Patients, regardless of species, are not all the same with each having unique qualities that dictate the care needed and the means by which it should be provided.
- The heart of nursing is to provide service that has the inclusive aim of preventing disease, support the client of prescribed treatments for ailments by their health care provider, promoting healing, and protecting the patient’s psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
- Education is a tool that must never put down or taken for granted. We are introduced to a framework of ideals from which to build on. Embrace it and learn how to use it to benefit others. Everything is represented by education; not necessarily the degree, but by experience, as well. It's not about self, it's about the needs of the individual(s).
- A critical attribute of a nurse is flexibility with the willingness to expand functions and skills. This applies to all service professionals
- Nurses’ roles expand beyond the hospital; health interests and concerns are everywhere and we need to look out for each of them, and each other.
