What is a Medical Billing assistant?
A Nurse is someone employed to care for patients; someone
trained to look after sick or injured people. Nurses are normally
seen working in hospitals and doctors' offices, however there are
private nurses that visit homes of the sick and elderly. They are
there to maintain the proper schedule of eating, taking medicines,

practical nurses; certified nurse assistants; school nurses; nurse

administer hypodermic (under the skin) medicines but LPNs and CNAs
