Roles And Responsibilities of a Nurse

It won’t be wrong to say that nursing is one of the more important jobs in the field of health care. A nurse performs a variety of tasks such as helping patients with basic hygiene tasks to assisting the doctors in surgery, and various other such things.

There are many different types, and their roles and responsibilities vary depending on the type. Some of the most common types of nurses include aides, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and nurse practitioners among others. Here is a list of some of the most typical roles and responsibilities.

Role

One of the biggest roles of a nurse is to act as a caregiver or a care provider. It is also the traditional role. The nurse provides direct care to the patient. To perform this activity, a nurse needs to have the necessary training to ensure they have the necessary knowledge and sensitivity to take care of the patient.

A nurse also acts as a teacher where they provide the required information to patients to ensure compliance with the prescribed therapy. They also help promote a healthy lifestyle and interpret information for their patients. In other words, they perform a teaching role for their client.

A nurse also acts as a counselor to help patients recognize and cope with various stressful problems.

Depending on the degree and expertise, a a nursing expert performs his or her job in a variety of specialties. For instance, a nurse practitioner is skilled at making nursing assessments, teaching as well as treating various self-limiting illnesses. Similarly, a nurse anesthetist has the required qualification to perform the required procedures.

A nurse with necessary training in midwifery is eligible to provide prenatal as well as postnatal care.

Responsibility

As far as the responsibility of a nurse is concerned, he or she has the duty to advocate for the patients. A nurse must work to ensure the legal rights as well as privacy protections of a patient. It is also the responsibility of the nurse to ensure that patients knowingly choose whether or not to participate in medical research.

Also, a nurse should meet all the necessary qualification and license requirements to ensure they have the required training and knowledge to perform their duty. They also has a professional obligation to take personal responsibility for all nursing decisions and judgment.

As far as the work environment for nurses is concerned, they usually work in home health care clinics, hospitals, nursing care facilities, private physician’s offices as well as in government. In many cases, nurses may have to work the evening, night as well as holiday shifts as most facilities are open 24 hours a day, and every day of the year.

Also, a nurse may be required to be ready to work on short notice in certain cases. On the other hand, someone working in the office of a physician may have a more standard schedule.

Overall, a career as a nurse is full of challenges and rewards. If you are a natural caregiver, a nursing job will not just be right for you, but you will do well, and prosper in this field.
