One of the necessary rehabilitation specialists is a rehabilitation nurse. Nursing care has moved from a traditional paradigm (patients playing a passive role) to a complex and modern notion of nursing that supports patients in performing self-care independently and actively. A rehabilitation nurse is a trained nurse who assists patients with disabling injuries or diseases in leading relatively normal and self-sufficient lives. This could entail assisting someone in regaining abilities that they have lost or gaining abilities that they have never had. However, a rehabilitation nurse's primary role is to teach patients how to cope with their limitations. These nurses may, for example, assist their patients in strengthening their afflicted limbs through exercise or educate them how to utilize adapting devices such as wheelchairs. Specialized rehabilitation nurses should be included in the rehabilitation team, according to rehabilitation service providers.
