Nurses provide their patients with a wide range of services. They usually help prevent injury and sickness, encourage safe living, and take care of the sick. Through prescribing drugs, they provide direct treatment for their patients, and aid with convalescence and recovery. Nurses help patients improve and preserve their health by designing and implementing their patient care plans. Nurses may either choose to specialize in a specific field, or many are general nurses who perform a variety of duties as required by the doctor. Specialty fields include surgery, neonatal, anesthesiology, gynecology and many others. Nurses also grow to become heads of divisions and managers, control over other nurses, set patient care standards and even write the budget of the department.
