Where It Will Take You

Registered nurses are health professionals who perform a wide variety of functions. Nurses gather information in a systematic manner in order to determine the health-related needs of patients. Once the nurse is aware of the adult's or child's health needs, there are many ways to intervene in the healing process and to maximize the potential for good health. Some of the ways nurses intervene include: assisting in the rehabilitation process, teaching procedures and health practices, administering medication, assisting persons who are in pain, comforting the dying and supporting the families of those who are ill.
