A certified nurse midwife (CNM) helps new mothers throughout their fertility journeys. From pregnancy to postpartum care, they are with their patients every step. But that’s not all — these nurse practitioners treat female patients throughout their lives, from puberty through menopause.
Not all patients’ ailments are physical. They need ongoing support and care for psychiatric conditions, like someone healing from a broken bone or chronic illness. In these instances, they rely on the expert skills of a mental health nurse to lead better lives.
After a surgical procedure, patients are in a vulnerable state. Waking up from anesthesia can lead to complications ranging from nausea and vomiting to pain and swelling.
Cancer is one of the most prevalent and life-threatening diseases in the world. Treating cancer patients is much more than just overseeing chemotherapy. It offers education, emotional support, and hope to patients and their loved ones.
