The role of nurses is changing in the modern health care. Nurses are taking a central role in patient care and are developing new skills, such as nurse prescribing, as well as becoming specialists in particular therapeutic areas like diabetes, cancer and renal care. In addition, the new roles of nurse practitioner and nurse consultant are providing greater scope for career development. With recent reductions in the number of hours worked by junior doctors, the role of nurses is set to further expand as they take on additional skills previously undertaken by their medical colleagues.
All these changes require nurses to learn new and enhanced skills in areas such as patient assessment and care management as well as clinical practice.
