    What does it mean to be a professional nurse?

    In a recent article on the ADVANCE for Nurses website, one nurse asked some insightful questions about the profession of nursing. 

    "Is the essence of nursing accurately reflected by individual expressions of professional pride or identified in a more global definition embraced by all registered nurses? How do we, as nurses, clearly communicate what we do and who we are to others? I am a nurse - what does that mean?" asked Mary Laufer, MSN, RN-BC.

    How do you answers these questions.
