Nurses play an integral role in the health system, but the nature of that role is rapidly evolving as they are increasingly tasked with a wider range of responsibilities. Many jurisdictions recognize different types of nursing positions, which reflect different levels of education and responsibility. For example, registered nurses often work with physicians and other healthcare professionals as part of a team to manage care for patients, advance practice nurses (also referred to as advance practice registered nurses) have expanded training and skills in specific areas (e.g., anaesthesia, chronic disease management, neonatal care), while nurse case managers focus on coordinating long-term care for patients in hopes of keeping them healthy and out of the hospital. Read our products below for evidence and insights about the role of nurses in the health system.
