Journal of Nursing : Debate



  • Is Nursing a Profession
    Laura Steadman, Ed.D, CRNP, MSN, RN Gary Milligan, DNP, MSHA, APHN-BC
    Professions require that educational preparedness must be within institutions of higher learning. In order to be held out as a profession, an individual must be able to practice autonomously within their scope of practice. Nurses have an identified scope of practice mandated by a particular state board of nursing. A profession has a code of ethics which is recognized across numerous levels of practice within the profession. The culture and norms of a profession are easily recognized by the professionals who make-up the body.
