Acute care hospital RN jobs are varied and dynamic. An acute care nurse might be assigned to a group of patients sorted by type of treatment, such as those needing back surgery; a specific health condition like diabetes; a body system, such as brain and spinal cord; or a well-defined population like pediatrics. An acute care nurse assesses her patient to find what's wrong (such as confusion after surgery), makes a nursing diagnosis ("falls, risk for"), plans care (institute fall precautions), provides the care (assistance when walking), and evaluates the outcome (safe walking).
According to payscale.com, the median salary for acute care RN hospital jobs in 2009 ranged from $43,849 to $65,447 a year.
