Adult Health Nursing
Adult nursing professionals play leadership role as the primary health care providers. They promote constructive health practices and disease prevention methods which begin in early adulthood and continues throughout the ageing process. Adult nurse practitioners are trained in such a way that they apply nursing theory in all their clinical practices. As leaders in the health care environment, adult nursing specialists educate, organize and manage the staff in their teams to respond quickly and efficiently in both routine tasks and emergency situations. An adult nurse practitioner will treat both acute and chronic illness, and can specialize in specific areas, such as diabetes or HIV/AIDS. An adult nurse practitioner usually works within a hospital, but there are opportunities available in the wide areas of health care settings such as adult day health care.
