Mar 2019 - Aug 2019
As a development disability nurse your main responsibility will be to provide your patients with the medical care and developmental training they need to handle basic daily functions and to lead happy, healthy lives. The role of a nurse in this field is not fixed. Nurses may have to carry out different kinds of responsibilities based on the type and extent of special need. Some patients may require only occasional help and guidance with certain cognitive functions whereas others may require more extensive assistance or even full-time attention. The seriousness of the disability may also vary. While some patients with more severe disabilities may not show marked or quick progress, those who suffer from minor disabilities may show a huge improvement over a much shorter period of time. As a special needs nurse, you will often have to interact with the family of the patient as well in order to teach them the skills necessary to take care of and interact with their loved one. You may also have to suggest development schools for children in certain cases. Excellent communication skills are very important in this specialty. A development disability nurse should be able to communicate with a patient, with the patient's family, with doctors in different specialisations as well as with other caregivers. Travel 863-453-0186
