11). In this career a nurse will have duties such as: recording vital signs, monitors the patient, will have discussions about the patient with physicians, and evaluate test results (“Registered Nurse” para. 3). An RN deals with problems that people have with their health, and keeps track of their patients medical records; however, it is a requirement to have a nursing license (“Registered Nurse” para. 1).
These abilities help nurses provide the best patient care and support for their families and the best support to doctors and other healthcare specialists involved in the care of the patients. RN responsibilities are different depending on what you know or were taught but often include patient care, advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), acute care, case management, and treatment planning. Besides medical skills that can be learned through a nursing program, nurses must also have a blend of known taught skills such as active listening, critical thinking, social skills, and decision making skills are all very important for nurses. "Registered nurses have numerous job duties that put them in the forefront of the medical field. They not only provide patient care but also help educate patients and their families about health care and specific situations."
Bibliography Nursing A nurse is a health care professional who cares for ill or disabled individuals, their families and communities ensuring that they attain, maintain or recover optimum health and functioning (Crosta, 2013). There are several kinds of nurses classified depending on their education and experiences. As an example, • In the UK Nurses are classified as: o first level nurse o second level nurse o specialist nurse o manager • In the United States nurses are classified as: o licensed practical nurses (LPNs) o registered nurses (RNs) o advanced practice nurses (APNs) These nurses will work in various health care settings. All of these nurses are having a legal outline to work in. Each kind of nurses has their own scope of practice.
These Nurses work in various environments such as hospitals, clinics, offices, schools and birthing centers (“Work Environment”). In order to become any of these professions you first need a master’s degree from an accredited program. I will need to take anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. But I also must become an RN (Registered Nurse) before I can pursue my education in advanced practice roles. I must also have clinical experience-background science, communication skills, leadership skills, critical-thinking skills, interpersonal skills, compassion, resourcefulness and I must be detail-oriented (“How To Become One”).
Each state has different licensing standards, but in every state you must pass a series of written examinations and field experience before you can consider yourself a registered nurse. As a nurse you have to gain more mental skills such as compassion, organizational skills, critical thinking, emotional stability, and effective communication. These skills can help you to build special relationships with your patients and co-workers. In my geographical location of Woodville, MS, there are several options of accredited nursing schools. Alcorn State University and Southern University both offer bachelor’s and associate’s degrees in nursing.
People that want to become nurses need to have a loving heart and would love to help people out. People who love helping others should become a registered nurse. A registered nurses job is to take care of the patients and give the patients support (“Registered Nurses” para.1). To be a registered nurse, you need to have skills. If you don’t have enough skill, you need to improve them even though it takes a little hard work and motivation.

Registered nurses are responsibile for giving patients medications and treatments. They observe patients' behavior, take their vital signs, and assess their health problems.
