Registered Nurses (RN) are the largest group among all the health care occupations. RNs evaluate patient’s health problems and needs and provide nursing care to ill, injured, convalescing, and/or disabled patients. Nurses record patients’ medical histories and symptoms and administer treatment and medications. They help perform diagnostic tests, analyze results, and may advise patients on health maintenance and disease prevention. Registered Nurses develop and apply nursing care plans and maintain medical records. They educate patients and the public about various medical conditions. They also assist with patient follow-up and rehabilitation and provide advice and emotional support to the patients’ family members.
