Abstract

This letter emphasizes the vital role of nursing as a globally respected profession that bridges science and arts, crucial for healthcare's backbone. It highlights the global shortage of nurses, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, exacerbated by an ageing population and challenging work conditions. Specifically, it notes Pakistan's situation, with a significant nurse-patient ratio disparity, and underscores the profession's rapid evolution in regions like Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The letter argues for the unique employment opportunities nursing provides, including domestic and international positions, and suggests that having at least one nurse per family can be beneficial for both personal and economic reasons.
