Nursing profession is called as noble profession because nurse dedicates themselves in caring for patient 24x7 for entire life without much expectation of high salary and facilities. The nursing profession encompasses a group of professionals who strive to advocate, educate and care for their patients. You might wonder why nursing is described as a profession as opposed to an 'occupation'. The difference lies with the level of dedication. We are not a stand-alone team, however. Nurses work with many medical disciplines -- our strength lies together, working alongside these professionals while keeping the patient's best interests at heart.
