Objectives of B. Sc in Nursing 2006 : A nurse’s primary objective – regardless of work environment – is to make sure all of her patients receive quality treatment in a timely manner. Nurses help expedite patient wait times by taking care of routine tasks. For example, nurses check patients’ vital signs and ask questions about patients’ medical histories so that doctors have as much information as possible when it’s their turn to see patients and can get straight to work.
Taking care of a patient’s needs is rarely a one-person task, so nurses step in to assist physicians during diagnostic tests and various medical procedures. This helps ensure that all procedures are conducted properly.
