Rehabilitation nurses work with patients going through one of the most difficult phases of their lives. Every day, they help recently physically disabled patients to learn how to live more independently. This includes teaching patients how to adapt to their disabilities, and helping them to learn their limitations.
A rehabilitation nurse career is a rewarding experience, because the ultimate goal is to help the patient go back to his life as normally as possible. They work closely with the patient and his family, instructing them on how to face the challenges that come with rehabilitation. Some rehabilitation nurses even facilitate group therapy sessions, which allow patients to share their experiences and offer support to one another.
Rehabilitation nurse jobs require at least an associate’s degree from an accredited nursing program, although many employers look for more advanced degrees. Due to the nature of their jobs, rehabilitation nurses usually have specialized knowledge of musculoskeletal and orthopedic disorders, spinal cord injuries, and neurological damage. They most commonly work in rehabilitation facilities and hospitals.
