Med Surg (Med surg is a broad term to describe areas in the hospital where most patients will be placed, when an overnight stay is required, that does not require intensive care. Here, patients can be monitored, have medication administered, and receive medical treatment that does not require 1:1 or 1:2 nurse to patient medical attention. Originally viewed as an entry level position, med surg requires so many skills, it is now considered a specialty in and of itself. Med Surg nurses provide direct care to adult patients in a variety of settings and is now the largest group of nurses accounting for 1/6 of the nursing population.
