An Orthopaedic Nurse takes care of people with musculoskeletal diseases and disorders like arthritis, fractures, broken bones, joint replacements, genetic malformations and osteoporosis. When musculoskeletal problems require surgery, Orthopaedic Nurses assist doctors with the operation and help them later with recovering their mobility and strength. Education is also an important aspect of an Orthopaedic Nurse’s job, as they teach patients and families about musculoskeletal disease prevention, symptoms, and treatments.
