Doctor vs. Nurse

Key Differences

Doctors undergo extensive education to diagnose and treat diseases, perform surgeries, and manage patients' overall healthcare. They often specialize in a specific area of medicine and may conduct medical research. Nurses are trained to provide care, assist with patient recovery, and support doctors in medical procedures. They focus on the holistic care of patients, including their emotional and physical comfort.
