Who is a Nurse?

A nursing professional is a person who is trained to give care to people who are sick or injured as a member of the health care team along with doctors and other health care workers. Nurses observe, assess, and record patients’ symptoms, write and manage patient care plans, administer medications and provide assistance to physicians and other health care providers during examinations and treatments. Nurses also help with end-of-life needs and assist other family members coping with grief through psychological support. They are trained to work in a variety of challenging health care settings through the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
