Nurses have the responsibility of monitoring the condition of the patients and administering medication/medicines at regular intervals. They assist doctors and help set up medical equipment in operation theatres and clinical laboratories. They also assist the doctors in telling the medical condition of patients. 1 Currently, under the National Medical Commission Act of 2019, nurses are authorised to independently prescribe specified medicines in primary and preventive healthcare. In cases other than primary and preventive healthcare, they can prescribe medicines only under the supervision of doctors.
