Nursing Practice

Nursing practice encompasses all of the activities nurses are educated and authorized to perform. Practice can be influenced by the settings where they work, employer expectations and client needs. The practice of nursing is the promotion of health, and the assessment and treatment of health conditions in order to help clients attain or maintain optimal health conditions.

Nurses work independently and collaboratively as part of a team to provide care to individuals, families, and communities. Their care can involve administering medications, performing wound care and caring for essential needs such as eating and washing, to name a few.

It also involves performing physical tests and assessments, and gathering information about their client’s medical history. Some nurses are more involved with health promotion, counseling and providing health education. Other nurses conduct research to support improved practice and patient outcomes.

Because nurses work as part of a health care team, part of their practice involves delegating tasks to other professions and documenting their assessments and findings thoroughly for others to refer to.
