The one keyword that could be used to describe the role of adult field registered nurses is diversity – registered nurses who hold adult field registration (and additional registerable qualifications, for example prescribing or teaching) care for the needs of people across the lifespan, including safeguarding the health of mother and baby. You will be able to experience that diversity during placements in clinical areas where adult nurses practice which might include:
Acute sector general and specialist medical and surgical nursing
Critical care nursing (intensive and high dependency care, emergency department, theatres and recovery)
Community nursing in the home environment and primary care
