What are the differences in levels of Nursing?
Practical Nurses (PNs): Care for the sick, injured, disabled or convalescent. They bring their caring, sympathetic natures to hospitals, home health care services, nursing care facilities, physicians’ offices and other health care providers and agencies. PNs work under the direction of physicians and registered nurses.
Registered Nurses (RNs): A health care professional responsible for implementing the practice of nursing through the use of the nursing process in concert with other health care professionals. RNs work as patient advocates for the care and recovery of the sick and maintenance of their health. RNs use the nursing process to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate nursing care of the sick and injured. RNs also provide advice and emotional support to patient’s family members.
