A typical day in nursing can vary. It can depend on the patient to nurse ratio and the hospital or facility that you work at. But in general you come in , get report for the previous nurse, perform your rounds to introduce yourself to your patients you will be providing care for. You may have to count narcotics and medications. You review the doctor orders and labs if any. Possibly prepare for medication pass and treatments. Usually no 2 days are excellently the same, because patient status can change and staffing as well.
