Ambulatory Care Nursing

Posted in Nursing Specialties

Visit our Specialty Nursing Forum to discuss Ambulatory Care Nursing.


Ambulatory Care Nursing is often best expressed as a rapid-care specialty area. Goals include keeping patients in their home environments for as long as possible within various medical problem areas.

This type of nursing includes those who choose to provide care on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to homeless shelters and other social care agencies that offer services without prior long-term history or specified appointment dates.

Due to the wide spectrum of individuals using Ambulatory Care Nursing services, those holding an RN with AD, or a BSN are often more comfortable providing care in these rapidly changing and unpredictable atmospheres.

Good people skills, communication techniques, and an understanding of sociological structuring can make the job of Ambulatory Care Nursing a very rewarding experience.
