What do NDIS Registered Nurses do?
NDIS Registered Nurses play a crucial role in supporting individuals with disabilities and addressing their specific health and clinical care needs. Nurses within the NDIS framework are primarily responsible for assessing, planning, and evaluating nursing care for participants. Their duties encompass coordinating patient care, administering treatments and therapies, including medication management, and closely monitoring patient responses to treatment and care plans. Nurses are also the key point of contact for addressing patient inquiries and providing essential information. While Enrolled Nurses (ENs) also perform interventions, treatments, and therapies, such as medication administration and response monitoring, it’s important to note that they operate under the supervision of NDIS Registered Nurses (RNs).
