The Pulse of the Profession
Welcome to the ShiftMed blog where we discuss everything nursing, from professional insights to healthcare holidays to helpful hints for working with us.
BSN’s are professionals who have earned a Bachelor's degree in nursing. A BSN is a degree awarded to the registered nurses (RN) at an undergraduate level.
ER Nurses are high-earners in the nursing profession. Given their job's fast-paced, stressful nature, these nursing specialists are always on the front lines of medical care and emergency treatment.
Charge Nurses are also Operating Room or Theater Nurses. They often have supervisory roles and can perform most tasks assigned to general nurses. They ensure the shift runs smoothly and coordinate with the hospital administrators, physicians, and staff nurses.
Labor and delivery nurses (L&D nurses) serve mothers during labor and delivery. Nurses in L&D help women through the most transformative experience of their lives. They witness the miracle of childbirth every shift and care for infants immediately following their arrival into the world.
