What role does a Registered Nurse (RN) play in a health care setting?

RNs are responsible for nursing care provided to individuals and groups, including health maintenance, teaching, counseling, collaborative planning, and restoration of optimal functioning and comfort.  RNs may delegate appropriate nursing activities to other RNS, and/or health care personnel including practical nurses and nursing assistants in a variety of health care settings.  RNs are primarily employed in hospitals, long-term care facilities and community health agencies.
