Registered Nurse Assessment Test

A registered nurse (RN) is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and met the requirements outlined by a country, state, province, or similar licensing body to obtain a nursing license. An RN's scope of practice is determined by local legislation governing nurses and is usually regulated by a professional body or council. Registered nurses are employed in various professional settings, often specializing in their field of practice. They may supervise care delivered by other healthcare workers, including enrolled nurses, licensed practical nurses, unlicensed assistive personnel, nursing students, and less-experienced RNs.

Registered nurses must usually meet a minimum practice hour requirement and undertake continuing education to maintain their registration.

Registered nurses often work in hospitals or outpatient facilities, providing hands-on patient care by administering medications, managing intravenous lines, observing and monitoring patients' conditions, maintaining records, and communicating with doctors. They are also relied upon to give direction and supervision to nurses and home health aides. 

Beyond the physical support and care they provide, registered nurses may provide emotional support to patients and patient's family members. They may educate patients and the general public on disease management, special diet plans, and medical conditions, provide information on home care after their treatment, and teach individuals how to self-administer medication or complete other self-care tasks. 

Nurses employed by physician offices and other facilities may have different duties depending on the level and type of care offered.  

Key Skills:

  • Effective communication- As a nurse, you are on the front line of care - Verbal Ability and Verbal Reasoning 
  • Critical thinking- A sharp and critical mind is needed to excel in the nursing field- Logical Reasoning
