Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~Florence Nightingale 

Medical Assisting. A medical assistant is an allied health professional who supports the work of physicians and other health professionals, usually in a clinic setting, but often in an administrative setting as well.. "Not quite a nurse, but on the way."

Common Procedures. Certain skills are absolutely necessary for nursing assistants and others who make direct contact with patients. These learning resources present the principles and procedures for routine medical procedures such as taking vitals, moving patients, drawing blood, and using catheters.

Patient Care. Patient care is the central theme of nursing and, indeed, all allied health professions and occupations. Although many allied health occupations do not require patient care (medical office administrators and clinical lab technologists, for example), an understanding and appreciation of the elements of patient care contribute to the quality of work and the working environment.
