Nursing Work Environment
The registered nurse (RN) is a licensed health care professional with a dynamic and essential role on the health care team. RNs practice in a variety of settings; hospitals, clinics, emergency centers, long-term care, rehabilitation facilities, schools, correctional facilities and home health care agencies. Registered nurses care for patients throughout the lifespan, from birth through the end of life.
The practice of nursing is “the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. (American Nurses Association, 2017)
Critical-thinking and decision-making ability, as well as a life-long commitment to learning, are important assets in this demanding but rewarding profession.
