Duties and Responsibilities of a Registered Nurse
« on: June 30, 2009, 10:09:24 AM »
The scope of practice for a registered nurse can be exceedingly extensive. It may differ from one state to another and may depend on the institution.  States have laws and regulations on what is suitable for these professionals to do as registered nurses. This is true, it is important for a nurse to be informed of what is well within their role.

The role of a registered nurse involves creating a plan on meeting the needs which have been identified for the individual under care, while coordinating this with doctors and other professionals in the field of healthcare.

There are a few key guidelines for registered nurses to remind one’s self around the scope of work. These guidelines can be used as determinants in identifying job coverage. First is to check whether the act is prohibited specifically by the state nursing act where he or she is practicing. Second is whether the skill was covered and was part of one’s education which he or she has completed. Third is if the procedure is stated in the manual of policies of the institution where he or she is an employee. Lastly, the act should go by cautious and sensible nursing standards set.

Should one still have doubts after going through the above mentioned guidelines, then they may seek validation from the nursing board in the state to ensure and check whether such duties fall within their scope.

Once again, it is important to emphasize the importance of consulting and verifying things which are covered within the policy. What this means is check both state and institution policies. This ensures that as a nurse, you are well guided around what is appropriate and expected for you to do.

A registered nurse usually has at least an Associate of Science degree and is responsible for all the patients in his or her care. An RN can perform assessments on patients, give certain medications that a practical nurse cannot and many other duties too long to list here. AN LPN can give medications (oral medicine), assist with collection of data from the patient. A care attendant is just that, he or she assists with basic functions of life such as bathing, toileting, feeding, taking temperatures, blood pressures and pulses and then gives them to the RN or LPN.

I am a newly registered nurse but I think I can do the things that the older nurse can do to and I think I can surpass them.

Their duties and responsibilities vary according to the state or the constitution of their work. laws governing the practice of nurses is different in each state. Institutions also have guidelines for the number of nurses. These laws are sometimes more restrictive than the law of the State.

There are innumerable nurse duties depending on field in which nurse is working. A nurse is a person who takes care of a patient and plays a vital role in transforming that patient to a normal person as he or she was. The duties for a nurse may vary slightly at each hospital, but overall their care tasks are the same.
