What does Practice Nursing Offer?
Practice nurses have a privileged role of providing high quality care to a wide range of patients from young to old. Primary care nursing allows you to build therapeutic relationships with patients and provide good patient centred care working in a supportive environment whilst acting as an autonomous clinician. You not only treat and care for long term conditions, minor illness and injuries but play a pivotal role in the prevention of diseases and health education and can make a real difference to people’s life. As primary care evolves and transforms so do the practice nursing roles, roles and skills which historically were the responsibilities of general practitioners are shifting towards toward nurses meaning they are becoming more accomplished in different roles.
