Top 10 Qualities of a Great Nurse
Why Nurses Rock
As communicators, nurses make sure patients know what’s going on. But dealing with patients day in and day out isn’t easy; nurses must remain calm and collected, even in the face of tragedy. They empathize with their patients, without letting it get personal and interfere with doing their job. A nurse’s day is often crazy, requiring flexibility, patience, and physical endurance. A situation can change quickly, requiring a nurse to be quick on her feet, ready to assess the situation and respond. But no matter how intense it gets, a great nurse pays attention to the patient, from the big issues to the little details!
Great nurses, who exhibit all of these qualities, each with a smile, who we respect and admire!
