Adult nurses are the main point of contact for adult patients and their families, and play a vital role in teams of professional and medical staff. They work with doctors, social workers and therapists, and attend to a patient's comfort and emotional well-being as well as their medical needs. Typical duties of the job include:

assessing and planning nursing care requirements
writing care plans and records
providing pre and post operation care
monitoring a patient's condition
carrying out routine investigations and care procedures, such as administering medication, injections and intravenous infusions, and taking patient samples, pulses, temperatures and blood pressures
dealing with emergencies
supervising junior staff
organising workloads
tutoring student nurses
providing advice and promoting good health
providing information, emotional support and reassurance to patients and relatives

Good interpersonal skills are vital for nurses, who have to communicate with numerous other medical and care professionals as well as being a key source of information and emotional support for patients. Other valuable attributes are:

teamwork skills
an ability to deal with 'emotionally charged' situations
