Describe how science and art are synthesized in the practice of nursing.
Nursing is a combination of both a science and an art. It is a science because the nurse must have scientific knowledge about diseases and the patient based nursing care plan. Nurses begin with a nursing school which educate them in detail about the human body and the science behind it (Hayes. R, 2013). It is the application of theory into practice. The nurse has to keep himself/herself abreast of changes in technology, policies and procedures.
