A registered nurse is someone who assists their patient through medical treatment. They continually monitor their patients to see if there are any changes in their conditions, collaborating with physicians and other health professionals to understand what is the best course of action.
This information is then used to create a nurse caring plan, which identifies what the patient needs while also taking into account what they may need in the future. They may also need to support the patient’s family as well, providing them with instructions on what to do for them outside of care facilities.
The average salary for a new registered nurse is $47,000 per annum. Nurses with three to five years of practical experience earn from $54,000 to $68,000, with senior nurses can earn between $68,000 and $114,000.
