An inpatient nurse works with individuals who are inpatients in a medical facility. Under the supervision of doctors and sometimes other nursing staff members, an inpatient nurse sees to the overall needs of the patients to which he is assigned. This entails carrying out doctors' orders with regard to medications, nutrition, and exercise; checking vital signs; helping the patients with hygiene; and ensuring the patients' comfort. Nursing inpatient jobs also include the role of educator as well, helping patients and their families better understand and deal with the medical issues at hand.
Inpatient nurses typically work under the guidance of other medical professions, such as doctors, more experienced nurses, and sometimes nurse practitioners. Inpatient RN jobs involve following the medical care plans these professionals outline for patients who have been admitted to a facility, such as a hospital or a nursing home. They have the responsibility of making sure a patient receives the medications he needs, has the tests a doctor or nurse practitioner orders, eats, goes to the bathroom, and receives appropriate hygienic help. He also works to ensure that the patient is kept as comfortable as possible given his condition.
