Anatomy of the Endocrine System (Nursing)

by Darren Salmi, MD, MS

The endocrine system is a complex network of glands and organs that produce hormones and regulate various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth and development, and reproductive processes. It includes the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries, and testes.

For nurses, understanding the anatomy and function of the endocrine system is crucial for assessing and managing patients with endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, and adrenal insufficiency. Nurses must be able to recognize and assess signs and symptoms of endocrine disorders, such as changes in weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.
