5 Ways to Become the Head Nurse
4. Stay Professional
No one is going to want their boss to be someone they can’t trust. For that reason, while you should keep a high profile with a good attitude and work ethic, you should stay away from drama whenever possible. Don’t get involved with gossip, don’t complain about other staff members behind their backs, and don’t ever be seen as lazy, incompetent, or too tired to do the job. And most of all: don’t date any of your coworkers. While hospital romances
aren’t exactly rare, it’s rare that someone in a leadership role got there after a dalliance with one of the other nurses or doctors on staff.
