"Health care is rapidly evolving to become more client focused. The nursing process has distinct characteristics that allow the nurse to consider and empower the client towards making decisions and and choices around their health care. In their daily work, nurses deal with intimate and fundamental human events such as birth, death and suffering. Nurses are the ones who are there to support and advocate for clients and families who are facing difficult choices, and for those who are living the results of choices that others make for and about them."--p. 90.
