Nursing is a health-care profession that focuses on assisting individuals, families, and communities in achieving, maintaining, or regaining optimal health and quality of life. With their approach toward patient care, training, and scope of work, nurses are distinct from other health care providers. Nurses work in a variety of specialisations and have varying amounts of prescription power. Many nurses provide care within the scope of physicians' practise, and this role has moulded the community's perception of nurses as caregivers. Many established strategies and provider responsibilities are shifting as nurse education shifts toward advanced and specialised identifications. Nurses are responsible for the ongoing care of sick people and want to assess their health and assist them in making a full recovery.
A nurse's primary responsibilities include:
• Promote health and disease prevention
• Participate in healthcare education
• Collaborate with other members of the team to provide healthcare.
