    staff nurse and registered nurse are one and the same. A registered nurse assesses and cares for patients in a wide variety of settings. Staff nurse just means a nurse who works at the bedside as opposed to in administration. A nurse's aide here only works in geriatrics or med surg and does personal care (bathing and feeding and some do vital signs). They don't assess pts and can't do most psychomotor skills that RNs do like catheters, IVs, chest tubes, etc.

    A person who completes a bachelor of nursing is awarded a bachelor of science in nursing degree (BSN), but her job title is still registered nurse after she passes the RN exam. Lower degrees are Associate's degree in nursing (ADN), usually takes 2-3 years or a Diploma, which usually takes 3 years. All these nurses are RNs regardless of degree.

    2 levels of nursing:

    Registered nurse (lawfully protected title)
    successful completion of an accredited program
    passing state board exam

    Licensed practical nurse or licensed vocational nurse (legally protected title)
    successful completion of an accredited program
    passing state board exam

    As for job description, best to do an internet search..nurses wear many hats in many modalities
