Responsibility is a huge core of being a nurse. But being responsible, actually responsible for another human being doesn’t happen overnight. As you grow up, responsibility comes in many forms. When you have to clean up the toys, clean your room, do your homework, all those things are your responsibility. And those little things eventually progress to being at college on your own, getting a job and being on time for that job. Having responsibility is something we have learned from a young age.
Each profession has certain responsibilities centering around that specific profession: being a nurse is so different from being an electrician. But we will all learn through going to classes and from doing the actual job duties and responsibilities of that profession.
And learning never stops. There is education for most professions. This is a responsibility for each professional to learn the newest up to date information as the years go on.
I love being a nurse! So much so that I went to obtain my masters, specifically in anesthesia. In my practice (I am partnered in my own nurse anesthesia company), my full responsibility is the patient where I am calculating medication dosages and monitoring their reactions to those medications, but especially being responsible for their airway. Many of the medications I use slow the respiratory system, but I have been taught and have shown clinical expertise at the bedside to handle airway emergencies.
I still love what I do. 32years and counting!! There are so many things you can achieve with a nursing degree.
Keep asking your questions!
That’s the first step in responsibility by the way!!

Lillie’s Answer

When being a nurse you truly have to be responsible. For one showing up on time, it is against the law for the other nurse to leave without coverage if she or he could lose their license. You have to document and report accurately. You need to write things down but make sure no hippa violations. You will be a part of a huge team you have to be responsible for knowing the facts that they need to know. You will have approximately 16 or more vital signs all 5 of them so if you did the math 80 vital signs. You monitor them and must be able to recall changes. So being responsible is a must for this job.

Great query! It's crucial to be highly accountable if you're considering a career in nursing or any other healthcare profession. Being responsible shapes both your nursing role and your personal identity. Don't forget, you're a key player in a team where everyone must own their tasks. Moreover, you're entrusted with someone's health - be it a patient, friend, or family member - and they count on you to deliver top-notch care.
