Neuroscience nurses provide care to patients suffering from brain and central and peripheral nervous system disorders. Neuroscience nurses focus on treating their patients to improve their physical, behavioral and cognitive abilities. Many patients arrive in the care of a neuroscience nurse after having neurosurgery, experiencing brain injuries, suffering spinal damage or experiencing neurological trauma. Neuroscience nurses also care for patients with neurological health conditions such as encephalitis, Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis and meningitis. Typical neuroscience nurse duties include providing care after surgery, updating medical records, administering medicine, monitoring neurological functions, working in collaboration with physicians and specialists. Neuroscience nurses must have a high level of sensitivity to their patients since many of them have experienced recent trauma and are often times confused and mentally exhausted. They can help their patients recover by teaching them how to improve their body functions and battle persistent neurological difficulties.
