Statistics plays a vital role in almost every field of study one way or another. It can be used in different applications. As in the field of nursing it can be used to calculate the arithmetic mean of the number of people who get examined each day and in the same manner the record can be maintained for a week, mint or even a year.

Similarly data calculations can be used to have an analysis that how many patients supper a particular kind of disease like HIV etc and this data can be used further by the hospitals to take more measure against it. A percentage calculated by the nurses can be useful in this regard. Similar techniques can be used by nurses.
