What is the importance of the
public image:

The image of nursing is formulated in many ways by the public, the media,
Interprofessional colleagues, and nurses. Nursing’s image as a profession has
both positive and negative aspects and different from male to female student according
to (Azza, Dalal and Husam,2015) that most of male student have a positive image
to nursing profession and its societal view, benefits and view of
self-satisfaction on nursing. This study done on a Jordanian and Egyptian
undergraduate male student study in their fourth year in nursing.

view and might make a wrong picture for the nurse and also it cannot be applied
to all nurses it depends on the person. This image can positively or negatively
impact on the nurse’s self-image. According to (Takase .M, maude. P, manias. E,
2006) that the public image effect on the self-image. Nurses rated their
aptitude for leadership more positively than they thought the public viewed
them. In contrast, nurses rated their image as being caring less negatively
than their perceived public image. Job performance was predicted by self-image

intention, both self-image and perceived public images of having an aptitude
for leadership and being caring were negatively related to intention to quit
the job. Tis study was done on 346 Australian nurses participated in a
questionnaire study and this study comparing nurses’ perceptions of their
public image with their self-image, and examining how the relationship between
their perceived public image and self-image was associated with their job
performance and turnover intentions. Also may also effect on the way that he

done on a 776 person from south African public and majority of them show a
positive image for nurses.

The public image also does not effect in nurses itself or in the quality
of the nursing care but also its effects on the choice of future job for the children.
the (meiring. A. and van wyk. C., 2013) and that there is 43.6 of the parents
