  • Empower nurses and midwives self-reliance in the area of determining their own scope of practice
  • Encourage independent critical thinking among nurses and midwives
  • Assist nurses and midwives overcome barriers and obstacles to the use of the scope of practice framework as experienced by practitioners.

In a survey we conducted last year on the public’s knowledge of nursing, we asked them how important certain attributes were to the nursing profession. The results showed that maintaining patient safety, acting in a professional manner, taking responsibility for the care provided and retaining patient confidentiality were considered the most important attributes. Building on the survey’s findings, the theme for Nurses Week this year is Professionalism in Nursing: What the Public Expects.
