This week we’re celebrating the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses’ Neuroscience Nurses Week by highlighting the impacts of neuroscience nursing care across neurology. We explore what a typical (or not so typical!) day is and the diversity of roles within neuroscience nursing, as well as finding out more about the best, worst and strangest parts of the job.
In this article we talk to Melissa (Missy) Moreda, Clinical Nurse at Duke Raleigh Hospital in Raleigh, NC, USA and Director at Large for the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses.
