This means that safe and effective care is needed more now than ever before, and therefore we need more services such as Life Link III. This air ambulance service can bring people from outside the metro area to a healthcare facility with ease and excellence. Their safety standards are through the roof, and they’re able to provide their services to different parts of country, flying patients from Minnesota to various specialty centers in the country so that they can receive the best care possible. This paper will discuss how the nurse can provide safe and effective care while also promoting the quickest healing time possible.

Simple hand washing provided by Nightingale reduced infections caused by operations while Barton helped to establish the American Red Cross (Pearson, 2015) which to this day continues to provide aid to those in need around the world. Contemporary issues for nursing are typically within the healthcare setting.
