The role of a Community Nurse within the NHS
More and more patients are treated outside a traditional hospital setting. As their numbers grow, the ability of the NHS to provide medical and nursing services is also changing and community nurses play a vital role in this increasingly important aspect of our healthcare system. Community nurses help the NHS meet the needs of elderly, disabled or vulnerable patients who may not be able to easily visit the hospital.
Community nurses are trained to perform a variety of nursing procedures which may include:
- basic care – such as checking temperature, blood pressure and breathing
- administering injections
- assisting doctors with examinations and medical procedures
- cleaning and dressing wounds
- setting up intravenous drips and monitoring ongoing care
Community nursing jobs can be high pressure: nurses work in environments which change from day to day and lack many of the resources available in a hospital. Given the demanding nature of the role and the spectrum of patients they are required to treat, community nurses should possess excellent communication and listening skills, while demonstrating sensitivity towards the specifics of each unique situation.
