Not so many years ago, nurses wore white uniforms and stiff white caps. They gave up their chairs for physicians at the nurse’s station. They cared for patients who stayed in the hospital for days or weeks to recuperate from surgery. They received a technical education, often in a diploma program, and carried out task-based nursing duties. This picture is as antiquated now as today’s nursing model will be in 20 years.
