As a common perception, nurses are required to provide support to doctors in carrying out different tasks, especially during surgeries and other critical illnesses. Once the doctor’s job is over, it is the nurses who take care of the patients. Nurses should have proper knowledge of all the requisite things needed in providing healthcare to patients and especially, those suffering from terminal diseases. It includes complete knowledge of operating different medical devices and equipment without showing any signs of pressure or panic. However, now the role of nurses has gained so much importance in the healthcare settings that there is a growing need of nurse managers who can supervise junior or trainee nurses and work in coordination with the medical practitioners to provide better and systematic services to the patients.
Canada, one of the major countries in North America, has much to offer when it comes to job opportunities for healthcare professionals, including nurses.
