Nursing More Than Giving Shots, Taking Vitals
Nurses set the tone, often being the first and last person a patient sees in the hospital. It's not just following doctor's orders or helping people use the bathroom. It's everything in between, while dealing with people at their best and worst.
Nurses are highly trained, some with master's degrees or doctorates. Nursing certification is possible for registered nurses, advanced practice nurses and clinical nurse specialists. Nurses can pursue leadership roles and influence change and growth in the health care field.
While the nursing profession has evolved through the years, the one constant is the commitment to providing the best care possible to patients and their families.
In honor of Nurses Week, the Daily Nonpareil and LiveWell Nebraska profiled four nurses from Methodist who deliver The Meaning of Care every day.
