Marlena’s Answer

Every time you start a job, you are required to sign a new job description describing your general roles and responsibilities. If you're not reading these, that could be detrimental to your career if issues arise! Read these, keep a copy for your records. But depending on your location, role, etc., responsibilities vary greatly. Bedside nursing you perform assessments, medication administration, documentation, critical thinking skills, anticipate needs, education, etc. Admissions, discharges, education, iv lines, other lines, wound care, assistance with adds as needed. Roles and responsibilities truly depends on your role and setting. Must follow policies and procedures of facility plus npa regulations, hipaa, etc. Different guidelines are noted at different types of facilities. Administration, managers, different roles, education all have varied responsibilities and policies to be followed.

Marlena recommends the following next steps:

Long term care
Emergency nursing
Skilled nursing care
Acute care
Infection control nursing

Hey Tamara! Isn't it interesting how both our jobs, even though I'm in IT and you're in nursing, involve working with people? If you're curious about how your role differs from others in your field, a great idea might be to check out job listings from top hospitals. This way, you can see if there are tasks you're doing that aren't typically included in your job description. It's a fun way to discover more about your unique role!
