Client education is one of the most important roles for a nurse in any health care setting. The goal of educating others about their health is to assist individuals, families, and communities in achieving optimal levels of health.

Promoting healthy behavior through education allows clients to assume more responsibility for their health, resulting in better health maintenance habits.
