PNs are responsible for data collection, including all aspects of physical assessments, prioritizing the implementation of therapeutics nursing measures, providing and delegating direct patient care and assisting clients in the prevention and promotion of healthcare. They provide care to the patient or client by assisting in their personal hygiene and providing comfort measures. A Practical Nurse is trained to utilize the nursing process and critical thinking reasoning to provide care and always promote patient safety in diverse healthcare delivery settings.
