Nursing is an art and a science. The art of nursing is embedded in human caring. The science of nursing requires specialized knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and technical skills.
The practical nurse is a valuable and essential member of the health care team contributing to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of nursing care under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician, or other specified health care professional as defined by the Utah State Nurse Practice Act.
