I am starting clinicals in January-so excited Woohoo!!
-anyways, I have been trying to figure out 'specific' duties/responsibilities of a nurse(general). Every article I read just says that nurses are responsible for assesments, etc.---but I want to know specific procedures that nurses perform!
I.E. I used to think nurses did sutures, but now I think physicians do them?
Hope this makes sense---I want to know what specific procedures nurses typically perform, no physician needed.. Well, besides the obvious BP, temp, IV, etc. Will I be doing catheters and NG tubes, etc?
