Registered Nurse (RN, ADN)

Nurses Career

A registered nurse monitors all aspects of patient care and consults with the healthcare team to assess and implement the patient care plans. Some nursing duties may vary depending on the specialization of the hospital or unit the nurse is assigned to. Specialized units include coronary care, surgical care, long-term care, rehabilitation, oncology, pediatric units, and perinatal (newborn) units. In general, nurses administer medications, record and report symptoms or changes in a patient’s condition, take vital signs, and prepare patients for further examinations and treatments. They will also instruct the patient and the family on health education, disease prevention, and ongoing self-care.
