The findings in this research should be utilized into practice. Even though more research is needed in this field it would benefit everyone to create supportive environments. There is little that can be done to decrease the demand on nurses but the profession can become aware of the need to support each other. References Enns, C., Gregory, D., (2007).

A prior paper that featured in the Annals of Emergency Medicine, Trajectories at the end of life in the emergency department, opened discussion on nursing practices in regards to end of life care. This research that followed on however, has more of a focus on the professional development required of nurses, to cope with the death and dying that they experience in their field of work. Hypothesis This study in particular didn’t appear to have a distinct hypothesis. There was no real question to pose or answer. What it appeared to be however, was to understand the impact of death and dying on end of life care emergency professionals.
Nursing As a Science and an Art Nursing is a medical profession that involves the care and management of patients majorly in the hospital setting. This paper seeks to illustrate the fact that nursing is both a science and an art. Nursing is a science because it involves evidence based practice, education of the public, lifelong learning for the nurse and administrative roles that are allocated to the nurses. Nursing is also an art because nurses depend on intuition, have the capacity to promote positive change, are understanding and culturally sensitive. Nursing entails self- directed and cooperative health care for the society at large in all contexts.

Patients also noted that caring interactions were more meaningful when nurses appeared to enjoy their work, were genuine in their communication and used humor when necessary (Finch). The study ultimately could not conclude if patients with perceived better healthcare actually did better than those who did not. However, the patients with caring nurses felt they had better results, less bleeding, faster wound healing, less distress.
It also, distinguishes between the inner self that is how one feels from inside and the outer self, what other people see on you includes your appearance, verbal and nonverbal behaviour (Bulman and schutz,2004). Self awareness is not essential only for reflective learning but also for skilled professional nursing practice by having knowledge of one’s values belief and behaviour and how it affects others is important for developing good interpersonal skills and integrate therapeutic relationships with our clients. Increased self awareness in client can be achieved through a trusting relationship between a client and a patients that allow the client to intereact with nurses openly and explore their feeling for which a nurse can understand one’s problem easily and are able to give better and proper treatments.

The role of nursing is not to fix the broken patient or make them whole but to care and know the patient fully. He sees technology as an extension of caring that enables a greater sense of knowing. The idea of knowing is a central idea throughout Locsin’s work. Knowing is a mutual process between the nurse and those being nursed. They must come together and know each other in order to have mutual knowing and acceptance (Locsin, The Culture of Technology: Defining Transformation in Nursing, from "The Lady with a Lamp" to "Robonurse"?, 2001).
It also offers opportunities for nursing care to enlarge his dynamist and make the best use of clinical judgment. Evidence-based practice is an important method that nurses can use to provide an excellent care to patients and their relatives. Research has shown that nurses that treat their patients by using evidence based practice method tend to provide a better care than nurses that don’t. Evidence based practice includes a methodology approach for the most significant evidence to come with clinical solution. .
Some foresee their death and lack to feel the need of adhering to medication or advice from the practitioners. As a nurse who has learned the art of patient care, I try to revive the hope of the patients through cases of other patients who have been in the same situation but are still alive and healthy. Providing assurance to my patients has been a product of learning and understanding the essence of patient care. Vaughn and Spetz (2013) assert that there is a significant relationship between nursing education and the delivery of quality care for nurses. From the research, registered nurses with high education levels decreased the mortality rate for patients considerably.
