Registered Nurses (RNs) assess patients, develop individualized plans of care, evaluate treatment outcomes and revise the patient’s plan of care as needed. As a vital member of the healthcare team, RNs collaborate with the patient, families, physicians and other healthcare professionals. They supervise LPNs/VNs and work under the supervision of physicians.
