What does a Rehabilitation nurse do?

Rehabilitation nurses provide therapy and comfort to patients with temporary or permanent disabilities. They educate patients and their loved ones about the techniques needed to help the patient develop self-care skills and move towards optimal health and mobility. A rehabilitation nurse also helps permanently disabled patients adapt to their altered lifestyles while promoting physical, emotional, and psychosocial wellness. Other tasks a rehabilitation nurse may do include:

  • Performing hands-on nursing care to achieve positive outcomes for patients

  • Developing individualized care plans and reality-based goals along with the patients, their families, doctors, and other members of an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team to promote overall wellness and maximum independence

  • Collaborating with the rehabilitation team to foster patients’ independence and achieve overall goals

  • Assisting and teaching patients to live with and appropriately manage their chronic injuries and/or illnesses

  • Preparing patients and their loved ones for future self-management to continue rehabilitation efforts

Where do Rehabilitation nurses work?

Rehabilitation nurses work in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings in various acute to subacute rehabilitation facilities. These include general or community hospitals with or without rehabilitation units. Practice settings may also include outpatient rehabilitation clinics, long-term care or assisted living facilities, educational institutions, teaching hospitals, Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers, private practices, home health agencies, patients’ homes, and insurance companies.

What skills make a good Rehabilitation nurse?

Good rehabilitation nurses have the clinical skills and specialized knowledge required to effectively care for patients with physical disabilities, chronic illnesses, or disabling injuries. They’re skilled at using medical devices and other equipment required for various rehabilitative therapies and creating/implementing patient-centered rehabilitation plans with realistically attainable goals. Rehabilitation nurses are exceptionally well-versed in preparing patients and their loved ones for future self-care and self-management. They also possess effective oral and written communication skills to establish a rapport with patients and their families. Above all, these nurses are immensely skilled at being supportive and encouraging, possessing a positive attitude and an abundance of patience and empathy.

How to become a Rehabilitation Travel Nurse?

The first step to becoming a rehabilitation travel nurse is to become an RN by obtaining an associate or bachelor’s degree from an accredited nursing program. Graduates must pass the NCLEX-RN licensing exam, then obtain RN licensing through their state’s nursing board. While certification isn’t typically required, earning the Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse certification through the Rehabilitation Nursing Certification Board increases employment opportunities.
