Abstract

Nursing is an independent profession according to the Act on Nurse and Midwife Professions. The exercise of the nursing profession involves the provision of health services by a person having appropriate qualifications and the license to practice the profession. In the literature, services provided by a nurse in primary healthcare are widely discussed, while no precise definition of the scope of these services has been provided for the hospital setting. Therefore, this article aims to present the aspect of independence in the provision of nursing services to kidney transplant recipients.
