SECTION 1



NURSES




A nurse is a health care
professional who is engaged
in the practice of nursing.




Nurses are responsible along with other health
care professionals for the treatment, safety,
and recovery of acutely or chronically ill or
injured people, health maintenance of the
healthy, and treatment of life-threatening
emergencies in a wide range of health care
settings.

Nurses may also be involved in medical and nursing
research and perform a wide range of non-clinical
functions necessary to the delivery of health care.

SECTION 2



NURSING




Nursing is a profession within the health care sector focused on
the care of individuals, families, and communities so they may
attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life.

Nurses may be differentiated from other health care providers by
their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice.

Nurses practice in a wide diversity of practice areas with a
different scope of practice and level of prescriber authority in
each. Many nurses provide care within the ordering scope of
physicians, and this traditional role has come to shape the
historic public image of nurses as care providers. 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.

DO ?




Nursing is an amazing profession to become a part of, and just
about anyone can find something to love about it. Whether you
want to learn more about the human body or you just want to help
other people, you could do well working as a nurse.

There are many nursing schools in America that provide the exact
training you need to get to work. All you have to do is find the
one that is perfect for you!



What Do Nurses Do?


Nurses are responsible for a wide variety of tasks in the medical
field. Some of the most common job duties of a nurse include:

Administering medications

Checking vital signs

Working closely with doctors in exams, surgeries, etc.

Recording patient symptoms, medical histories, and more

Cleaning bed bans and helping patients to the restroom

Performing sponge baths

Monitoring a patientís medical condition

Answering questions about a patientís condition

Comforting families in times of trauma

Changing bed sheets and clothes

Making patients feel comfortable, even in scary situations


As you can see, a nurse has to act as a counselor, a medical adviser,
a supervisor, and a record keeper all at the same time. If you can
multi-task and still keep a smile on your face, you could do well in
this profession.
