The Registered Nurse works to promote health, prevent disease, and provide physical and emotional support to cope with illness and restore health. They provide direct patient care and are advocates and health educators for patients, families, and communities. Nurses are employed in the acute and long term care facilities or hospitals, physician office, home health, community, school, business, industry, and in private settings. They must be physically capable to spend considerable time walking and standing; be able to lift fifty pounds; and be required to mobilize quickly to respond to an emergency. Nurses need emotional stability and a caring philosophy in order to cope with human suffering, emergencies, and stress. Because patients in hospitals and facilities require 24-hour care, nurses in these institutions may work nights, weekends, and holidays.
