Ambulatory care nurses work in outpatient environments. Their main duty is to provide pain management, but ambulatory care nurses also develop treatment plans and focus on patients’ overall health.
Depending on their specialty or place of employment, ambulatory care nurses may work with a variety of patients spanning all ages and populations. Typical employers include clinics, schools and home health care agencies, among others. Like traditional nurses, ambulatory care nurses assess patients, take vitals, manage cases and provide screenings. However, ambulatory care nursing jobs are usually faster paced and handle a higher volume of patients in a shorter period of time.
In order to qualify for ambulatory care nursing jobs, candidates need to pass the Ambulatory Care Nurse Certification exam. To take the exam, candidates must be an RN with two years of experience, 2,000 or more hours of ambulatory care clinical practice and 30 or more hours of continuing education.
Due to technological advances, doctors can perform more procedures in ambulatory settings, making ambulatory care nurse employment a desirable field with high job security.
