The core mission of the Nursing profession is undoubtly focused on taking care of people. Any "subject to subject" work is a kind of service in which production and consumption cannot be separated. Understanding of the sociological sources of carework in general calls for an explanation of the basis of social bonds. A diffusion in the Nursing profession of a holistic definition of health (bio-psychological- social and spiritual) is parallel to the contemporary cultural search of authenticity and self-realization in social relationships. So far spiritual work has to be defined as different from religion: a wider and deeper understanding of interdependence between social actors follows this line of thinking
