What is Nursing?
The profession or practice of providing care for the sick and infirm.
a nurse who assists a surgeon by performing certain specialized duties during a surgical operation.
Transplant Nurses help patients donate and receive organs. They prepare living donors for transplant procedures and inform them on any risks involved in the donation.
A trauma nurse is a medical professional who specializes in emergency care. This type of nursing focuses on identifying serious problems in incoming trauma cases and on stabilizing those patients so that they can receive further medical treatment. There are
This advanced practice nurse gives anesthesia and anesthesia related care to patients before, during and after surgery.
Nurse Anesthetists are among the most in-demand, and highest-paid, of all nursing professions.
It is an intensive career path because they have to be prepared for a wide variety of situations.
Labor and Delivery Nurse
Labor and Delivery Nurses help bring people into the world every day. They care for women during labor and childbirth, monitoring the baby and the mother, coaching mothers and assisting doctors.
As a Labor and Delivery Nurse, you’ll prepare women, and their families, for the stages of giving birth and help patients with breastfeeding after the baby is born.
Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse
Neonatal Intensive Care Nurses care for premature and critically ill newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of a hospital.
These babies are born needing immediate medical attention, so Neonatal Intensive Care Nurses connect them to technology that helps them breathe and allows them to be fed intravenously, so they can gain weight. As a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, you’ll work under the direction of a physician, caring for the newborn, and helping to educate their new mothers about their baby’s condition, breastfeeding, and answering their questions.
An Orthopedic Nurse takes care of people with musculoskeletal diseases and disorders like arthritis, fractures, broken bones, joint replacements, genetic malformations and osteoporosis.
When musculoskeletal problems require surgery, Orthopedic Nurses assist doctors with the operation and help them later with recovering their mobility and strength.
Education is also an important aspect of an Orthopaedic Nurse's job, as they teach patients and families about musculoskeletal disease prevention, symptoms, and treatments.
Military Nurses care for patients within the military, all over the globe.
These nurses are no different from other nurses as they administer medication, treat wounds, and care for the sick. However, one of the more interesting things about being a Military Nurse is that your assignments can take you all over the world.
Nurse Practitioners are Registered Nurses who serve as primary and specialty health care providers. They can specialize in family practice, pediatrics, women’s health, mental health and more.
While some states still require NP's to work under the supervision of a physician, Nurse Practitioners are gaining more and more autonomy and are, in some environments, serving as their patients’ sole health care provider and running their own private practices.
Plastic Surgery Nurse
Plastic Surgery Nurses help patients undergoing plastic surgery or recovering from procedures. They work directly with surgeons in the operating room where procedures range from small and elective, such as dermabrasion, to more complicated procedures like facial reconstruction or breast replacement after a mastectomy.
Pediatric Nurses work with patients from infancy to young adulthood, giving developmental screenings, immunizations, and treating common illnesses like chicken pox and tonsillitis. They work closely with family doctors, pediatricians and other nurses, to provide preventative as well as critical care.
As a Pediatric Nurse, you’ll also teach your patients’ parents and family members how to prevent childhood diseases, and about proper nutrition for growth and development.
Radiologic and Imaging Nurses tend to the needs of patients in locations that utilize x-ray, fluoroscopy, angiographic imaging, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear imaging.
This field is especially exciting for those who love technology. As the development of hybrid procedural suites combining surgical procedures with imaging modalities continues to grow, the number of locations where radiologic and imaging nurses are found will continue to rise.
Psychiatric Nurses treat patients diagnosed with conditions like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. They’re also trained in behavioral therapy, which allows these nurses to teach patients, and their loved ones, how to deal with challenges that go along with psychiatric disorders
A Flight/Transport Nurse cares for patients in remote areas who can’t get to a hospital or are on their way to the hospital. They must be able to quickly make decisions in emergency situations, where the outcome will quite often be a choice between life and death. These nurses can work for all kinds of employers, ranging from hospitals and medical disaster teams to airlines and individual patients.
