An ambulatory care nurse is a registered nurse who cares for patients on an outpatient basis who do not require hospitalizations and often who come on a regular basis, long-term for chronic health conditions but may also see patients short-term for other injuries or illnesses. They see patients in physician offices, and clinics and sometimes hospitals have outpatient ambulatory clinics where they may be employed as well.
The main role of an ambulatory nurse is to provide patients with intravenous therapy (IV), perform phlebotomies, collect lab samples, administer blood transfusions and provide education and teaching to patients.
Nurses in this area of speciality have a broad set of nursing skills and see a wide variety of people from different backgrounds and age. They must be able to quickly assess patients and monitor them for adverse health effects during IV therapy.
Ambulatory care nurses must be licenced as a registered nurse and can become certified in ambulatory care or infusion therapy.
