Nursing education refers to the study and practice of nursing as a profession. This encompasses functions and responsibilities in patient physical care, as well as a blend of disciplines that both accelerates and assists the patient's return to health. Over the centuries, nursing and nursing education have undergone significant changes. This history illustrates a never-ending battle for autonomy and professionalism. Women's struggles for professional acceptability and status, religion, conflict, technology, and societal attitudes have all had an impact on nursing practice in the past. Nurse education emphasizes the use of research-based data to rationalize nursing interventions.
