Medical-surgical nurses administer medicines and surface treatment, educate patients on their health conditions, and admit or discharge new patients. Therefore, they essentially co-ordinate the groundwork in any health care facility. The course additionally involves modules on nursing education and enrolled students are equipped with the skills needed to teach practicing nurses and undergraduate/graduate students.
