The goal of the essay is to highlight some significant issues relating to women's empowerment in India and how the nursing profession serves as a symbol for women's progress toward financial independence. Women have been at the forefront of global policy in recent decades. More than ever, women are speaking out in favour of gender justice, social security, and health. In other words, women's empowerment is a strategy for overcoming challenges, boosting acceptance, and expanding the capacity to actively participate in decisions that affect her and her family. Due to a lack of educational options, women are disadvantaged when it comes to decision-making autonomy and an equal distribution of power. The majority of nursing practitioners in India are female, and the career is widely recognized as a respectable one in Indian society. Nursing is the profession of choice for women in India.
