BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Nursing is the largest health care profession in the health  care context (price et al., 2013), however the shortage of nurse is not a recent phenomenon. Its central significance given the fact that the care permeates every stratum and  segment of any parathions, which are elaborate in mature, places them  in advantage position to render high quality services to the community (I O M, 2009). The Sustainability of nursing depends on maintaining an equilibrium regarding those that enter and exit the profession. A multidimensional perspective about career choice has to be examined in order to situate the  choice of nursing as a career among adolescents become physically and psychologically mature and acquires a personal identity (kozier and erb’s, 2012). Career choice is one the critical decisions adolescents are expected to make as the effective choice will have a positive impact on their self-concept development, and fulfillment of one’s life purpose. Perception is the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted (S. Swarna, 2015). It is important to a certain how students perceive nursing to be their career. Florence nightingale defined nursing  nearly 150 years ago as the act of living the environment of the patient to assist him in recovery (kozier and Erb’s, 2013). The philosophy has also been defined by many nursing theorist and nursing associations. Virginal Henderson was one of the first modern nurses is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to a peaceful death) that he will perform unaided if had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge, and to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible (kozier and Erb’s 2012 ).
