Neurology or neuroscience nursing is a specialty focused on preventing and treating conditions related to the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. A profession in neurology nursing requires an understanding of normal nervous system anatomy and physiology, keen assessment and monitoring skills, vast knowledge about neurological disease and conditions, and ongoing education related to recommended prevention methods and treatment options. These nurses will manage conditions such as stroke, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and encephalitis, to name a few. Neurology nursing is a broad specialty where nurses may work in inpatient or outpatient settings, care for medical or surgical patients, and see patients through acute illness or help them manage chronic disease and rehabilitation.
