What does a medical surgical nurse do?
Med-surg nurses monitor their patients for acute changes in physical condition, vitals signs, or lab values. These nurses prioritize patient safety, educate patients and families, mobilize patients, and monitor and administer a patient’s medication regimen. Med-surg nurses also need to know how to delegate tasks to ancillary staff, as well as chart accurate and complete documentation for their patients.
