A day in the life of a rehabilitation nurse

RNs who serve in this role in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals have the opportunity to treat multiple patients of varying diagnoses through administering medication, assisting to manage pain, preparing them for therapy and so much more. Rehabilitation nurses interact with physicians, case managers, therapists and other clinicians as part of an interdisciplinary patient care team.
