Ann’s Answer

The most important thing is to understand that being a nurse is not about the money you make but the love you have for your patients. The patient is your main priority, and you will meet as a new nurse many people from all different backgrounds. So, know that nursing can be a very mental and physical job but if you generally love people, you will do well. Good Luck!

Kruti’s Answer

Once a patient checks into a hospital or healthcare facility, a nurse must perform an assessment to understand the circumstances of the patient and the patient’s condition. This initial assessment can be a matter of life or death in some circumstances, especially when it comes to performing a diagnosis. Once the assessment is complete, a simple diagnosis may be given to the patient. A nurse may need to interview the patient for further information, to be able to diagnose the patient properly. A doctor may follow up and confirm the nurse’s diagnosis officially, but the nurse is often the one sharing the assessment and diagnosis to the doctor ahead of time. a nurse must come up with a plan on how to care for the patient. That plan must be consistent with the assessment and its aligning diagnosis. If a patient needs further diagnosis or assessment, a nurse may be able to call upon the services of a doctor. This assures the patient that the initial medical attention has the support of another medical professional.

Joshua’s Answer

The name nursing comes from the latin nutricius which may have been from sanskrit. The modern profession derives its name from care givers of young children. To copy a passage from the ANA: “ Nursing can be described as both an art and a science; a heart and a mind. At its heart, lies a fundamental respect for human dignity and an intuition for a patient’s needs. This is supported by the mind, in the form of rigorous core learning. Due to the vast range of specialisms and complex skills in the nursing profession, each nurse will have specific strengths, passions, and expertise.”
