How emotionally strong does a nurse or anyone in the medical field have to be?

Asked Chicago Heights, Illinois

I am a first year college student who wants to go into the medical field. I am aware that the medical field can be straining emotionally. However I am really curious as too how strong or "cold-blooded" I may have to be. #doctor #nurse #emergency-medicine #paramedic

Never give up empathy and compassion. Especially as a nurse. You don't have to be cold blooded. The patients heal better when they are treated with empathy. Don't become jaded.
