Regarding nurses: modern nursing requires far more knowledge and specialist skills than even 20 years ago, will this be reflected in game? Nurses now can advance to become nurse practitioners and treat patients independently. Perhaps this can be reflected in game as nurses with enough experience and skills becoming able to staff some of the medical rooms/medical roles? This would allow the player to be flexible with their staffing choices and skill mix, especially in smaller hospitals/clinics with limited budget/capacity for doctors.
Hi, nurses will play a crucial role in patient care in the game, but to keep the game design easy enough to grasp, we need to keep the roles of doctors and nurses separated. That said, the game will at least feature surgical nurses, triage of incoming patients, nurses will be spending a lot of time with hospitalized patients, handling their medication and spotting changes in their state.
