Play a Critical Role in People’s Lives Every Day
Prepare a patient for surgery while comforting them and their family beforehand. Take a child’s vital signs and talk with their parents to find out why they need to see the doctor to gather information to prepare the doctor for the visit. Conduct research on a specific population within L.A. County that is statistically showing a higher risk for heart disease to present to county officials, begin public service announcements, and alert healthcare workers of these trends.
These scenarios barely start to scratch the surface of the tasks nurses perform every day they go to work. They are healthcare’s caretakers, the ones who are a crucial link between patient and doctor, and provide those under their care immediate medical attention, compassion, and support.
Nurses are pivotal to our healthcare system, allowing it to run smoothly and efficiently. Nursing has always been in high demand, and as the demand for healthcare services continues to grow, Nursing is now one of the top ten (10) professions in the country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
