Unity among nurses: an evasive concept
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to elucidate contributing factors to the disunity in nursing, and argue that if united nursing would be able to achieve harmony, respect, and, above all, recognition. Social and historical identities imperil nurses, make them defenseless, and cause disunity. The relation between nursing and effects of gender discourses in power struggles is also accentuated. The paper concludes by advancing solutions to the disunity and argues that if measures are not taken urgently, unity in nursing will remain intangible and a legacy of disunity passes to the incoming generation.
