At Rooks County Health Center, nurses care for a variety of patients, fully utilizing all of their nursing skills. It’s not uncommon for a rural nurse, like those at RCH to begin their shift in the emergency room, assist in delivering at noon and then perhaps end the day providing one on one care for a child with a severe asthmatic episode.
Looking after people they know instills a stronger sense of accountability in our nurses. Whether they’re at the grocery store, at church or on the unit in the hospital they’re always the “nurse” in our communities. Rural nurses play a critical role in ensuring rural Americans’ access to quality health care.
