Overview

This text is divided into five parts, each of which addresses an aspect of the conflicting, complex image of the nurse in the law. All of these images are interwoven to create the social and legal realities of nurses' lives in practice. They can be, and are, used strategically and, to some extent and in different contexts, interchaneably to serve the purposes or reflect the status of the dominant groups, and to a lesser extent, the nurses themselves.
