Medical Surgical Nurses

  1. 1. Medical Surgical Specialist
  2. 2. The medical surgical floor has often been called a general hospital ward or a regular nursing floor. Neither of these definitions acknowledges medical surgical nursing as being a specialty.
  3. 3. In fact, the suggestion is that nurses who work on the med-surg floor are generalists with no specific knowledge. The med surg floor is often used as a stepping stone, or a starting place, or proving ground for new nurses.
  4. 4. If you wanted to start a career in critical care, it was often recommended that you get a couple of years’ experience on the med-surg floor first.
  5. 5. The problem with all of these definitions is that they diminish the impact that the med-surg floor has on patient care and diminish the value of the nurses who work on that floor.
  6. 6. Medical surgical nursing is a specialty area.
  7. 7. Nurses who work on the med-surg floor have specialized knowledge in caring for patients with a wide variety of different conditions, in the same way that a general ICU nurse would have a large variety of different patients in their unit.
  8. 8. In the document, Keeping Patients Safe, Transforming the Work Environment for Nurses, published by the Institute of Medicine in 2004, they documented improved patient outcomes being related to the nurse’s skill at monitoring patients and suggested that it is the nurse’s care that is an important defense against errors.
  9. 9. With the majority of inpatients cared for on the med surg floors, why is it that medical surgical nursing has gotten a reputation for being a starting place or a proving ground?
  10. 10. One of the reasons could be that until recently, no one had documented the specialized knowledge and skills that are required of med-surg nurses.
  11. 11. With the recent push to achieve magnet status, many hospitals are interested in having more nurses become certified in their specialty areas.
  12. 12. The American Nurse Credentialing Center and the Academy for Medical Surgical Nurses have developed curricula and criteria that define the scope and practice of medical surgical nursing.
  13. 13. This documentation has helped to define what medical surgical nursing really is.
  14. 14. Med-surg nurses may have to care for several patients at a time and need certain organizational skills in order to do so.
  15. 15. These are organizational skills that ICU nurses or OB nurses would not have. Med-surg nurses also need to have specialized assessment skills in order to be able to know a little bit about a large number of patients.
  16. 16. This differs from ICU practice where nurses must know a lot about a few patients.
  17. 17. In addition, medical surgical nurses often have a wide variety of patients to care for with problems ranging from cancer to surgery and can even care for pediatric patients on their floors.
  18. 18. A wide range of knowledge and skill is necessary to care for this vast, diverse patient population.
  19. 19. Med-surg nurses account for the greatest number of specialty nurses in any hospital. It is time we started giving credit where credit is due.
  20. 20. Medical surgical nursing is a specialty and med-surg nurses have specialized knowledge and skills in order to be able to practice in their environment.
