Skills that Make You the Best Nurse

Being a nurse is no easy task, and there are some innate qualities that a person must possess in order to become a good nurse.

Caring nature

Although it might be taken for granted that nurses are caring in nature, many nurses choose the nursing profession solely on the basis of job security. Hence, being a caring nurse is not at the very top of their priority list. Being a caring nurse makes a lot of difference to parents. Nurses who show a natural tendency to truly care for their patients and how they recover to make a significant impact on their careers.

Communication skills

It is critical for nurses to possess strong communication skills in order to work in a setting where they are in touch with other nurses, doctors and people from different disciplines, patients, and their families.

Without good communication skills, the chances of errors are magnified and patients might even feel neglected. The entire unit might feel its impact of it. Hence, it is crucial for nurses to learn how to communicate clearly and effectively in order to provide better care to their patients and ensure that their unit is functioning smoothly.

Empathy

People who work in the medical industry run the risk of being desensitised and forget what it feels like to be someone who is nonclinical. But it is a nurse’s job to retain empathy and ensure that patients are heard and understood. While following a routine guideline is a part of their job, keeping a person-centred care approach is also crucial and can make the experience of patients better.

Paying attention to details

Nurses are responsible for the care of multiple patients. They also follow orders from doctors while using their personal knowledge and skills to execute them. However, when functioning under immense pressure, it is only natural to make mistakes. Hence, possessing the capability of paying attention to details is important for nurses which will help them become successful in their roles.

Ability to solve problems

During a nurse’s education, they are imparted with knowledge and skills that help them to solve problems. However, with hands-on experience, nurses gain more knowledge that is used in making quick decisions that have big impacts on the lives of the patients under their care. So being able to pay attention to details is extremely important.

Stamina

Nursing is a physically demanding job because nurses are always on the go. It also involves lifting and adjusting patients which involves physical strength. Nurses are also required to work 12 hours shifts and it requires immense mental, physical and emotional stamina to be able to do the job well.

A will to learn

The medical industry is constantly updating itself and hence professionals who are directly involved in the medical industry and patient care must also be willing to unlearn things. Nurses must be open to learning new concepts and techniques and implement them while taking care of patients.
