please share nurse's duties for each specialized field..


I presume i have no specialization, but I have worked in a medical ward for 2 years and didn't like it one bit!. I hate giving bed baths to paraplegic patients every morning, and repositioning them every 2 hours.

Right now I'm planning to train and specialize on a particular field which i don't know yet! Anyway, I need some advice or any details regarding responsibilities of nurses, pay and how the usual day is in areas like ER, OR, ICU/CCU, and HDU.

Thank you in advance!

Check out the 'Specialty' tab (then click on 'Nursing Specialties' from the drop-down menu) at the top of the page.

Just about every area of nursing is covered and most have stickies where you can find info on the nurse's duties.

Hope that helps!

thanks for the reply.. I was actually thinking i could get insights from nurses who are working in the area and what they think about their job. Just personal opinions and such.
