The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives. If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. Based on these ideals nurses lead very demanding lives. Working with doctors, helping heal patients and educating the communities are but a few responsibilities of the nurse. In fact we can say that nurses are the backbone of our health care system.
I have immense pleasure in thanking our Chairman and the Secretary who have started a nursing professional course, at Theni District in 2009, because the trained nurse has become one of the greatest blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest.
