The Duties of a Registered Nurse


A registered nurse (RN) is a licensed medical professional who has completed an approved nursing program and passed a national licensure exam. RNs usually work in various healthcare settings and specialties, such as hospitals, clinics, home care, surgery, and emergency care.

Here are some of the common duties of a registered nurse:

  • Conducting physical exams and tests to assess a patient’s health needs and determine the best nursing care plan for them.
  • Monitoring and documenting patient symptoms and changes in their conditions, as well as reporting them to their designated physicians.
  • Administering medication, changing wound dressings, and providing other treatments as prescribed by doctors.
  • Counseling and educating patients and their families on treatment plans, medication use, and healthy habits.
