\r\n Gerontological nursing is the specialty of nursing pertaining to older adults. Gerontological nurses work in collaboration with older adults, their families, and communities to support healthy aging, maximum functioning, and quality of life. The term Gerontological nursing, which replaced the term geriatric nursing in the 1970s, is seen as being more consistent with the specialty's broader focus on health and wellness, in addition to illness. Gerontological nursing is important to meet the health needs of an aging population. Due to longer life expectancy and declining fertility rates, the proportion of the population that is considered old is increasing. Between 2000 and 2050, the number of people in the world who are over age 60 is predicted an increase from 605 million to 2 billion. The proportion of older adults is already high and continuing to increase in more developed countries. In 2010, seniors (aged 65 and older) made up 13% and 23% of the populations of the US and Japan, respectively. By 2050, these proportions will increase to 21% and 36%. Geriatric nurses are expected to be skilled in in-patient care, treatment planning, education, mental health, and rehabilitation. They also take on many roles in the workplace. The main responsibility is as a caregiver. They can also be advocates, counselors, and educators for their patients.
\r\n A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is a member of the medical profession that does their duties taking care of patients while under the management of registered nurses or doctors. The LPN does what is considered essential care, which means they help patients to eat, dress, walk, take a bath, comb their hair, etc. They may also give them their medicines, take their temperature or other vital signs, and do other similar duties.
\r\n They do the following:
\r\n a) Keep detailed, accurate records on patients' health
\r\n b) Monitor the health of patients by taking blood pressure and checking other vital signs
\r\n c) Report the status of patients to doctors and registered nurses
\r\n d) Help patients with basic care and personal hygiene activities, like dressing or bathing
\r\n e) Administer basic nursing care, such as inserting catheters, changing bandages or administering intravenous medications
\r\n f) Discuss healthcare with patients, explain procedures and listen to their concerns
\r\n g) Teaching families and caregivers how to care for injured or sick relatives
\r\n Psychiatric nursing or mental health nursing is the appointed position of a nursing that has specialized in mental health and cares for people of all ages with mental illness or mental distress, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, psychosis, depression, dementia and many more. Nurses in this area receive specific training in psychological therapies, building a therapeutic alliance, dealing with challenging behavior, and the administration of psychiatric medication. In most countries, a psychiatric nurse will have to have attained a bachelor's degree in nursing to become a registered nurse (RN) and specialize in mental health. Degrees vary in different countries and are governed by country-specific regulations. Psychiatric nurses work in hospitals, mental institutes, correctional institutes, and many other facilities.
\r\n The Midwife is recognized as a responsible and accountable professional who works in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care and advice during pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period, to conduct births on the midwife’s own responsibility and to provide care for the newborn and the infant. This care includes preventative measures, the promotion of normal birth, the detection of complications in mother and child, the accessing of medical care or other appropriate assistance and the carrying out of emergency measures. Midwives have an important role in health and wellness promotion and education for the woman, her family, and the community. Midwifery practice involves informing and preparing the woman and her family for pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and parenthood and includes certain aspects of women’s health, family planning, and infant well-being. A midwife may practice in any setting including the home, community, hospitals, clinics or health units.
\r\n Nursing education:
\r\n Nurse education consists of the theoretical and practical training provided to nurses with the purpose to prepare them for their duties as nursing care professionals. This education is provided to nursing students by experienced nurses and other medical professionals who have qualified or experienced for educational tasks. Most countries offer nurse education courses that can be relevant to general nursing or to specialized areas including mental health nursing, pediatric nursing and post-operatory nursing. Nurse education also provides post-qualification courses in specialist subjects within nursing.
\r\n Nursing informatics:
\r\n Nursing informatics (NI) is the specialty that integrates nursing science with multiple information management and analytical sciences to identify, define, manage, and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice. NI supports nurses, consumers, patients, the interprofessional healthcare team, and other stakeholders in their decision-making in all roles and settings to achieve desired outcomes. This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.
\r\n Nursing Practice:
\r\n Nursing practice is registered nursing professionals who are well trained and educated to promote and maintain the health. They have skill-based knowledge and decision creation to provide better healthcare. Nurses are considered as primary healthcare practitioner as they are initially in need of patient care. Nursing Conference aims to discover progress in health practice, management, and education in relation to health disparities as well as a breadth of other topics.
\r\n Pediatric Nursing:
\r\n Pediatric Nursing plays an important role in shaping the future. Pediatric Nursing is the scientific treatment of childhood which deals with the care of children from conception to adolescence in health care. Pediatric nurse duties may include: Conducting physicals, child immunizations, screening for disease, diagnosing illnesses, prescribing medications, normalize the life of the child in the family home, school and community, minimize the impact of the child's unique condition, foster maximal growth and development, develop realistic, functional and coordinated home care plans for the children and families, respect the roles of the families in the care of their children.
\r\n Registered Nurse:
\r\n Registered nurses (RNs) are healthcare professionals who care for patients and educate them about their health conditions. Becoming an RN requires the completion of a postsecondary program, usually an associate or bachelor's degree, although a few hospitals have teaching programs that offer diplomas. Aspiring nurses learn about topics such as anatomy and human development and gain extensive supervised clinical experience. Nurses also must be licensed in their states, which require passing an exam. It is estimated that projected job growth by 2024 will be 16%.
\r\n Travel Nursing:
\r\n Travel nursing is a nursing assignment concept that developed in response to the nursing shortage. This industry supplies nurses who travel to work in temporary nursing positions, mostly in hospitals. While travel nursing traditionally refers specifically to the nursing profession, it can also be used as a blanket term to refer to a variety of travel healthcare positions, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and even doctors and dentists. Reasons cited for pursuing travel nursing opportunities include higher pay, professional growth and development, and personal adventure. Agencies may submit applications for numerous positions concurrently on behalf of a traveler. A travel nurse is a nurse who is hired to work in a specific location for a limited amount of time. Travel nurses typically work 13week periods in one area and move around the country depending on where they are needed. Because the demand for nurses is so high, there are often shortages in certain areas, and a traveling nursing will be hired to come in and work in a specific position for a short amount of time. The major benefit of travel nursing is that you get to choose where you live and work. If you are tired of your current location or want to get away from cold weather for the winter, you have the ability to find a job in a different location and move for a short period of time.
\r\n Accelerated nursing program gives people or students with a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing discipline to become a Registered Nurse (RN) at the earliest without spending more time in school, making it an 11-18 months course.

Things that a CNS has to do:
• Clinical practice
\r\n Research that provides evidence to support nursing practices is known as the Clinical Nursing Research. Nursing is an evidence-based area of practice, had been since the time of Florence Nightingale to the present day, where many nurses now work as Researchers based in universities as well as health centers.
\r\n Clinical nursing research, one can provide high-quality patient care. Research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the nursing treatment modalities, to determine the impact of nursing care on the health of patients.

\r\n Evidence-based practice (EBP) means using the best, research-proven assessments and treatments in our day-to-day client care and service delivery. This means each clinician undertakes to stay in touch with the research literature and to use it as a part of their clinical decision making. EBP also means weighing the value of each part of the research evidence with clinical data and informed client choice. To be accountable for our EBP we should record both the decisions made and the evidence we used. An EBP clinician will also collect data to show that the clinical decision is helping to address the client’s goals.
\r\n The core activities at the root of evidence-based practice can be identified as:
\r\n The core activities at the root of evidence-based practice can be identified as:
\r\n • A questioning approach to practice leading to scientific experimentation
\r\n • Meticulous observation, enumeration, and analysis replacing anecdotal case description
\r\n • Recording and cataloging the evidence for systematic retrieval.
\r\n Evidence-Based Medicine:
\r\n Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit, judicious and reasonable use of modern, best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. EBM integrates clinical experience and patient values with the best available research information. It is a movement which aims to increase the use of high -quality clinical research in clinical decision making. EBM requires new skills of the clinician, including efficient literature-searching, and the application of formal rules of evidence in evaluating the clinical literature. The practice of evidence-based medicine is a process of lifelong, self-directed, problem-based learning in which caring for one’s own patients creates the need for clinically important information about diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, and other clinical and health care issues.
\r\n The EBM-oriented clinicians of tomorrow have three tasks:
\r\n • To use evidence summaries in clinical practice
\r\n • To help develop and update selected systematic reviews or evidence-based guidelines in their area of expertise
\r\n • To enroll patients in studies of treatment, diagnosis, and prognosis on which medical practice is based.
\r\n Evidence-based nursing (EBN) is an approach to making quality decisions and providing nursing care based upon personal clinical expertise in combination with the most current, relevant research available on the topic. This approach is using evidence-based practice (EBP) as a foundation. EBN implements the most up to date methods of providing care, which have been proven through appraisal of high-quality studies and statistically significant research findings. The goal of EBN is to improve the health and safety of patients while also providing care in a cost-effective manner to improve the outcomes for both the patient and the healthcare system. EBN is a process founded on the collection, interpretation, appraisal, and integration of valid, clinically significant, and applicable research. The evidence used to change practice or make a clinical decision can be separated into seven levels of evidence that differ in type of study and level of quality. To properly implement EBN, the knowledge of the nurse, the patient’s preferences, and multiple studies of evidence must all be collaborated and utilized in order to produce an appropriate solution to the task at hand. These skills are taught in modern nursing education and also as a part of professional training.
