Geriatric staff nurses focus on caring for older adults. As the U.S. population ages, this career is in high demand. Geriatric nurses are educated to understand and treat the often complex physical and mental health needs of older people. They try to help their patients protect their health and cope with changes in their mental and physical abilities, so older people can stay independent and active as long as possible. They must be patient, listen extremely carefully and balance the needs of their patients with sometimes conflicting demands from family members. Many older people have health conditions that do not require hospitalization, but must be treated with medication, changes in diet, use of special equipment (such as a blood sugar monitor or walker), daily exercises or other adaptations.
