A registered nurse (RN) is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and met the requirements outlined by a country, state, province or similar licensing body to obtain a nursing license. RNs fulfill a variety of job duties. In addition to their primary role in treating and caring for patients, their responsibilities also include educating patients and the public about a variety of medical conditions, as well as providing emotional support and advice to the families of their patients. Other RN job functions include leadership, research, performing diagnostic tests and analyzing results, operating medical equipment, administering medications, recording patients’ symptoms and medical histories, and assisting with patient rehabilitation and follow-up.

A chief nursing officer (CNO) is mandated by the hospital administration to maintain clinical and patient-care standards. This includes ensuring that the patients are safe in the hospital and have access to the right medical care. In order to do this, the CNO has to work closely with the hospital management and stakeholders to acquire the right infrastructure and resources. He or she offers the best insights to the management on how they can improve the quality of care in the facility. They are also responsible for formulating and implementing new nursing strategies. This requires extensive knowledge of the nursing procedures, staff rules, and patient policies.
