RN Jobs in West Valley City, UT

Registered Nurses (RNs)

An RN or registered nurse is a trained nursing professional who assists doctors in surgery by monitoring vitals and administering medication. RNs are responsible for the welfare of their patients in hospitals, nursing homes, private clinics and doctors' offices. An RN determines which treatments are needed to heal or ease symptoms when caring for patients.

An RN uses various diagnostic tools and medical equipment to assess a patient's health. RNs also manage the hygiene of patients, including changing dressings and catheterization. RNs may work at a private clinic or doctor's office or in a hospital setting where they spend time performing duties such as taking vital signs, monitoring intravenous therapy and operating diagnostic equipment like x-ray machines. RNs also monitor patients who are on ventilators, assist with surgery and provide bedside care.

RNs work long hours, including nights, weekends and holidays. RNs are required to have an RN license before practicing in the United States. RN licenses are regulated by the NLC (National League for Nursing) which is responsible for setting RN standards and requirements for RN licensure.
