As nurses, we administer a large variety of medications: cardiac medications, pain medications, electrolytes, anti-anxiety medications, antibiotics, sedation, etc. I usually think of the most common effects that a drug will have on a patient when I administer it.  What I don't usually think about is all of the other uses for that drug. Look at this interesting study about Ketamine (a procedural sedation drug) and what researchers are saying it can be useful for.
