The nursing field is enormous and it is essential to understand how to write during the nursing career. There are different career pathways. For instance, hospitals, nursing homes, community centers, hospices organizations, rehabilitation clinics, public health clinics, or a doctor’s office are some of the career pathways.

That increases the importance of writing well to ensure that the nurse will evaluate and provide all the information about the patient while charting and documenting the patient’s medical record.

A future nurse needs to know how to communicate with different types of people. For example, nurses may

write for doctors, other departments, patients, family members, and other nurses. Keep in mind that “writing as a Professional Nurse provides three general, though important, rules working nurses should keep in

mind while writing reports and charts and while communicating with doctors and patients.”(Purdue` owl). One of the rules explain concepts to a specific audience. For example, you might write a report about

a medical procedure for your boss or write to a patient’s family about how to treat a medical condition.
