Orthopaedic Nursing


Orthopaedic nursing (or orthopedic nursing) is a nursing specialty focused on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Orthopaedic issues range from acute problems such as fractures or hospitalization for joint replacement to chronic systemic disorders such as loss of bone density or lupus erythematosus. Orthopaedic nurses have specialized skills such as neurovascular status monitoring, traction, continuous passive motion therapy, casting, and care of patients with external fixation. These orthopedic issues include conditions like arthritis, bone fractures, broken bones, joint replacements, genetic malformations, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Orthopaedic nurses are familiar with traction, casting, mobility devices, and pain management.  When musculoskeletal conditions require surgery, orthopedic nurses assist physicians with preparation for the procedure and assists patients with their postoperative recovery.  Some orthopedic nurses may even work in the operating room
