All patients have unique needs and experience these needs across wide ranges or continuums from health to illness. The more compromised patients are, the more severe or complex their needs. The dimensions of a nurse's practice are driven by the needs of the patient, family and team members. This requires nurses to be proficient in multiple dimensions of nursing practice. When nurse competencies stem from patient needs and the characteristics of the nurse and patient synergize, optimal patient outcomes can result. The Outpatient Clinic Registered Nurse provides a wide array of nursing care to support patient care flows within the ambulatory clinic.
Nursing care provided by registered nurses in the Outpatient Clinic RN reflects the utilization of the nursing process through an integration of knowledge, skills, experience, and attitudes needed to meet the needs of patients and families.
