I found an interesting 1987 article written by the then Dr. Philda Nzimande titled Professionalism and Continuing Education - an imperative for nurses.

The first paragraph of the article states that "Every profession should rest upon a professional base of service to the community, a body of knowledge and adherence to a code of ethics." The article describes the criteria of a profession.

One of the most important sentences in Prof Nzimande's article concludes that knowledge and theory guide actions. It is therefore essential that professional nurses must continue to read about, learn of, and research the field of nursing. If we make clinical judgements from a position of knowledge our patients will be in save hands. Professor Nzimande's words rings as much true today as it did in 1987.
