Abstract (summary)
The attribute of comportment is intended to convey the nurse's belief that dress and language reflect the professional's respect for the patient, family, and colleagues. Comportment, as a caring attribute, has the potential to offer an opportunity to concurrently visually represent the intentionality of a nursing practice and demonstrate professionalism. adherence to professional dress and address demonstrates respect for the dignity of a person as a human being. registered nurses must demonstrate commitment to their caring practice by recognizing the need of the other as more important than their own need for self-expression.
