Medical-Surgical Nursing

 If you’ve ever been hospitalized or visited a patient in the hospital, the nurse who cared for you or your loved one was most likely a medical-surgical nurse.

Why Med-Surg Nursing is Unique

The most distinguishing characteristic of med-surg nurses is that they are master coordinators.

They are the orchestra conductors, the movie producers, and the air traffic controllers of their hospital units.

As such, med-surg nurses are some of the most skilled and cool-headed multitaskers you will ever meet.

At any moment, a med-surg nurse is juggling care for several patients – administering medications, educating families, discharging patients and admitting new ones, all while keeping the entire health care team on the same page.

As the go-to health care professional on the unit, the med-surg nurse needs high-level critical thinking skills, vast knowledge of disease states and body systems, robust management skills, and the ability to stay calm under pressure.

Med-surg nurses are always in motion physically, clinically, intellectually, and emotionally. They are the health care professionals who are coordinating care for patients 24/7.
