Nurses provide and coordinate patient care, educate and provide advice on a patient’s medical condition and provide emotional support to patients and their families. They help record patient’s medical histories and symptoms, observe patient’s symptoms, set up plans for patient care or contribute to existing ones and consult with doctors and health providers.
Nurses also operate medical equipment, perform diagnostic testing and analyze results.
Some registered nurses don’t work directly with patients. Instead they may work as nurse educators, healthcare consultants, researchers or hospital administrative.
