There are opportunities for Nurses not just in hospitals but in GP surgeries, voluntary organisations, schools, the pharmaceutical industry and much more
Holding a current NMC registration as a Registered Nurse is a fundamental requirement. Providing evidence of continuous professional development and having a clear DBS is essential as an RGN.
The roles of an RGN vary depending on the environment they work in however, the main roles are, having up to date knowledge of clinical practices and a strong understanding of regulatory requirements and frameworks. RGN’s must have experience of producing well-developed care plans, undertaking risk assessments and working in a clinical and non-clinical team.
Nurses also do the following tasks on a daily basis, although this is dependent on the place they work:
- Administering medication.
- Recording Service Users’ medical information and vital signs.
- Consulting and coordinating with the healthcare team members to assess, plan, implement and evaluate care plans to ensure personalisation.
Duties RGN’s are required to do are not always the same as it depends on the organisation and facilities they work in.
