Pat's Writings

Nursing's social contract with society is to serve humanity and attend to the human condition. 


Our ever-changing world drives the evolution of this practice. Yet these things remain constant for nursing, grounded in caring science:

  • unconditional acceptance of others

  • promoting choice 

  • facilitating what matters most to people
