What Does an RN Do?
A registered nurse is an important member of the medical team and has a lot of direct involvement with patients. RNs can work in hospitals, doctor’s offices, schools, and other organizations that require hands-on and immediate patient care. Day to day, RNs are responsible for such tasks as:
- Recording patients’ symptoms and medical histories
- Delivering medication and treatment
- Creating and supervising patient care plans
- Observing patients and recording findings
- Collaborating with doctors and other healthcare professionals
- Supervising and maintaining patients’ medical equipment
- Assisting in diagnostic testing and analyzing results
- Educating patients and families
All of these topics and more are explained, simulated, demonstrated, practiced, and observed throughout a quality RN training program, like the nursing degree program at HCI.
