A Pulmonary Care Nurse, also known as a Respiratory Nurse, cares for patients with lung and respiratory system complications like asthma, tuberculosis, or lung cancer. They usually work in hospitals, more than likely in critical care units, but can also be found in patients’ homes or residential care facilities. Some Pulmonary Nurses also focus on prevention education, letting patients and families know how important it is to exercise and avoid risk-raising activities like smoking.
