The role of the nurse is diverse and no one day is the same. Nurses spend a lot of time talking to families, about illness related factors and a broad range of things that may impact a person and their wellbeing. This might include:

◦  health assessment     ◦  monitoring and education     ◦  rehabilitation     ◦  crisis management     ◦  case management     ◦  coordinating a person’s care     ◦  liaising with other disciplines, agencies or other involved parties
