Nurses don’t just provide medical care to their patients; they are also a source of information. Whether they are reporting a patient assessment to the physician or helping a patient understand a doctor’s instructions, good nurses need to be strong communicators.
For the nurse who is a social butterfly that goes above and beyond in the communication department, nurse liaison jobs could be a great career move. Nurse liaisons are the primary contact person for patients in medical facilities and, as their title suggests, act as a liaison between patients and other medical personnel.
Nurse liaisons work closely with patients and their families to explain the types of services the facility offers and answer any questions. Typical responsibilities include reporting on admissions and discharges, test results, and patient progress. They also play an important role in scheduling follow up appointments for patients, including therapy sessions and doctor’s visits.
But nurse liaison jobs are still hands-on, patient facing positions. They must be able to administer IVs, check vitals, assess patients, and complete other nursing duties in addition to liaising. Generally, nurses must have a few years of nursing experience before moving on to nursing liaison positions.
