Required Credentials

BCLS (Basic Cardiac Life Support)

Job Description

Depends largely on the setting but in general, M/S nurses provide care and treatment to ill, injured and recovering adults. The nurse must be able to assess patient condition, administer medications, change dressings, monitor vital signs, keep records and provide patients with support and education. Some Med-Surg nurses choose to become more specialized within the broad field of Med-Surg nursing, pursuing subspecialties such as orthopedics, neurology, and oncology. Since each position is different, a Med-Surg travel nurse will benefit from being creative, quick-thinking and a good communicator.
