Why GeriatricsAre you interested in “Gerontology?” Why do some nurses prefer “Geriatric Nursing?” Are there any REAL challenges in taking care of an older adult? If you’ve thought about working in a skilled nursing facility, these may be some of the questions you’ve asked yourself. And here are some answers:
- Some nurses prefer Geriatric Nursing because of that feeling of “achievement” they experience when a 67-year-old gentleman is doing so well he is able to return to his home and live independently.
- Some nurses love working in a nursing rehabilitation center so they can actually use those assessment skills they have worked so hard to learn- they are the “eyes” and “ears” for the physician who cannot be present every day to check on his patients.
- Geriatric nurses actually find they have time to spend with their patients, so that they establish a life-long relationship and make memories that are forever cherished.
Nursing ChallengesNurses are usually the first on the healthcare team to recognize when something is medically wrong with their patients and are able to prevent a medical crisis by providing adequate assessments and notifying physicians for proper treatment. More and more Americans are living longer-and are enjoying life during their senior years and expect excellent nursing care as well as medical attention. The range of skills utilized by nurses in skilled care continues to broaden; examples include IV therapy, wound care, and tube feedings. Benefits
