For nurses from overseas, especially from USA, Philippines or any country that uses American standards of nursing practice. You should be aware that in Australia, they do not call the handing in or endorsing of patient from one staff nurse to another as endorsement.
In Australia they refer it to as the clinical handover. This is also the same with the endorsement and there is no difference at all, aside from the settings and each hospital may have their own policy on how to do the handover.
It is important not to be confused with these two words, for they meant the same but use or call in a different term.
