What specific characteristics are required of registered nurses/nurse practitioners?
I'm studying to become a nurse practitioner, I would like to know more about the career and what types of tasks and responsibilities NP's have in the hospital setting. #nurse-practitioner
Nurse Practitioner roles vary greatly in the hospital setting. One can work with the hospitalist (general medicine floors/patient), surgery teams of all specialties, oncology, cardiology, the list is honestly endless, And the tasks and responsibilities of these NPs vary just as much as the specialty. All write progress notes, update patient/families, order and follow up on appropriate tests/imaging studies. Some do specialty procedures based on their specialty and training. I hope this helps.
