The solid all-encompassing rim of a wheel, like the nursing profession, supports the spokes which represent the various aspects of care: educational, physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial. The spokes converge on the hubcap which is the focus: the patient, his family, and community. The soft rubber surrounding the whole is the empathy and compassion with which care is given. The wheel rolls forward constantly changing direction-in search of advancements in technology and delivery of care.
