"To give care is one of the hardest arts. Mercy may be a motive,
but knowledge is the only power in our work."
-Mary Adelaide Nutting, 1925, the world's first nursing professor
Hi everyone! Welcome to ASN's premier Nursing website..
What is the purpose of this site? Well, they say that nurses are always on
the move and yes!, they hit the road towards patient care, community
service and humanitarian cause. But we can't be effective nursing students
if we do not have the knowledge (theory) and experience (practice) in the medical field.
That's why this website was created... It aims to give nursing students
the quick information they need in order to achieve their goal in
saving lives. May this website give us the "edge" for keeping ourselves up
to date in the ever changing technology which tremendously improves medical care.
