Being from America they should focus on curing our not efficient schools should teach prevention.

If prevention was a priority then there wouldn't be as many illnesses to treat and cure.

All medical facilities could strike a balance.

As a nurse curing an illness is always the top priority. However after they are healed, then they need wellness and prevention to prevent a re-occurance. But it should also be used to prevent an illness from happening.

wellness and promotion are just as important as curing diseases. Patients with multiple diseases are rated as high acuity and require more recovery time after surgeries and demand more nursing care causing higher hospital bills and stays putting a burden on healthcare.
