There is a growing demand for nurses due to an increase in the aging population, and more people being admitted to long-term care facilities and outpatient care centers as a result of the financial pressure on hospitals to discharge patient as soon as possible.

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.

Registered nurses are required to follow strict, standardized guidelines to guard against diseases and other dangers.
Nurses may work long shifts of up to 24 hours and may be required to work weekends, nights, and holidays. They may also be required to be on call.
