Rehabilitation Nursing

Rehabilitation nurses provide care for patients with acute and chronic illnesses, injuries, and disabilities. Their main objective is to support patients in gaining independence and assist families in caring for their loved ones. These nurses specialize in helping individuals with chronic illnesses or impairments, as well as those who have experienced trauma or acute diseases. The goal of rehabilitation nursing is to help people with disabilities and chronic diseases achieve and maintain optimal function. In addition to helping clients adjust to a new way of life, rehabilitation nurses create a therapeutic environment for the growth of the client and their family. They develop and implement treatment plans that promote physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being, based on scientific nursing theory. Rehabilitation staff nurses work in various acute and subacute rehabilitation centers, both inpatient and outpatient settings.
