Nursing takes part in health sciences devoted to take care and bring medical attention to people from all ages, families, groups and communities, sick people or healthy, at any circumstance, and following different medical attention protocols. It also comprehends the health promotion, the prevention of diseases and the medical attention to handicapped people or to patients on a terminal situation as well.

This specialty requires a leadership that allows participating in policy-making, in creating new ideas and in helping solve daily problems.

The nurses must create some conditions for a consistent improvement and a high quality of provided services. Here, the communication is a key source for the success on the nursing leadership, promoting interrelationships with the client, the institution, the medical team and the other actors.
