Nurses are licensed to perform skilled care (tube feeding, regular injections, IV therapy, medication administratiFcaon, etc.). So, if your loved one requires skilled care, you’ll likely need a nurse on hand. 

Nurses are generally only in the home a few hours per week. Nurses are usually in charge of implementing specific instructions set forth by a doctor. Nurses also use assessment skills to help monitor the progress of a patient as they recover from serious illness or injury.

Nurses have strict educational requirements. There are several types of nursing degrees, including Licensed practical nurse (LPN), Associate degree in nursing (ADN), and Bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN). Nurses start as an LPN and work up to a BSN. Each of these types of nurses have different certifications and courses they must take.
