An Ambulatory Care Nurse takes care of patients in environments outside of hospitals and also patients who are in hospitals for 24 hours or less. Their main role is in pain management and general health education for patients with chronic injuries or illness. Medical screenings, triage, and case management are different types of things an Ambulatory Nurse does that helps restore a patient’s ability to live on their own. These nurses deal with a number of different injuries and illnesses, so they are not specifically focused in one area.
