Luck permeates every aspect of human behaviour. Thus, luck is an aspect of nursing care and client belief of which the nurse should be aware. Beliefs about luck will influence client compliance with recommendations for actions as well as influence actions the client selects in relation to health. Beliefs about luck will also influence actions the nurse may take when responding to clients.
