Registered Nurse Services

What is the Scope of a Registered Nurse (RN)?

Our Registered Nurses provide a range of community nursing and health education services and are happy to collaborate with  other health service providers.

What can RNs do?

RNs treat a variety of conditions. Some can be resolved by nursing treatment. Others can be stabilized or improved by
RNs but require the involvement of other health professionals, such as nurse practitioners or GPs, to diagnose and treat the
underlying disease. RNs provide some disease prevention and health promotion services, counsel, plan and coordinate
