The Nurse in Research: An Approach to Professional Excellence.
National Institutes of Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD. Clinical Center.
The traditional role of the professional nurse has emphasized patient care; however this role is now becoming part of a new role of the medical profession--membership on the modern medical team. In conjunction with this trend the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda has focused not only on the traditional nursing skills of patient care and teaching, but also on the new skill of careful integration of medical research. The Clinical Center's facilities are geared to providing professional excellence in such areas as training research team members, designing new equipment and techniques, and establishing valuable peer relationships with the medical profession. Not only does the Clinical Center nursing staff receive many professional and educational benefits, but also the use of excellent physical facilities and equipment, and training in nursing methods and techniques such as the team approach. Requirements for appointments for both the Commissioned Corps and Civil Service and an explanation of terms for clinical center nurses are appended. (BP)
