Registered nurses (RNs) are the mainstream professionals in the hierarchy of the nursing profession. In the United States, nurses should be registered in their respective states in order to work legally. Such professionals have a lot in store for them with regards to employment opportunities due to the increasing need for health care workers, in response to the aging population.
The job of a registered nurse (RN) is to work to promote health, prevent disease, and help patients cope with illness. They are advocates and health educators for patients, families, and communities. When providing direct patient care, they observe, assess, and record symptoms, reactions, and progress in patients; assist physicians during surgeries, treatments, and examinations; administer medications; and assist in convalescence and rehabilitation. RNs also develop and manage nursing care plans, instruct patients and their families in proper care, and help individuals and groups take steps to improve or maintain their health.
