However, nurses are permitted by most jurisdictions to practice independently in a variety of settings depending on training level. In the postwar period, nurse education has undergone a process of diversification towards advanced and specialized credentials , and many of the traditional regulations and provider roles are changing

Phoebe (biblical Figure)
PHOEBE ( Koine Greek
Koine Greek
Φοίβη) was a first-century Christian woman mentioned by the Apostle Paul in his Epistle to the Romans
Epistle to the Romans
, verses 16:1-2. A notable woman in the church of Cenchreae , she was trusted by Paul to deliver his letter to the Romans. In writing to the church that almost surely met in her home, Paul refers to her both as a deacon (Gk. diakonon) and as a helper or patron of many (Gk. prostatis). This is the only place in the New Testament where a woman is specifically referred to with these two distinctions. Paul introduces Phoebe as his emissary to the church in Rome and, because they are not acquainted with her, Paul provides them with her credentials. Phoebe's exceptional character, noted by her status as a deacon and prostatis—one who should be esteemed highly "because of their work"— may be the reason Paul sent her to Rome where she delivered the letter to Rome
