Nurse encounter people at there most vulnerable points in life and death. Pain, suffering and joy are common emotions. First and foremost nurse should lose all judgement and realize that everyone is different. We must meet them where they are with kindness and compassion. Empathy ,or the ability to put yourself in their place, is an essential personality trait for this who work as a caregiver.
