Martin’s Answer

This is a great question and it really hinges on your personal definition of bravery, as well as the specific field of nursing you're drawn to. Remember, bravery isn't strictly a work-related trait, but your ability to tackle challenging situations certainly is! Empathy, comprehension, and the ability to lend an ear are just a few of the essential qualities a nurse should possess. So, keep going, you're on the right path!

Alexa, in most cases you need to be kind and understanding for the most part. We have other times when a more direct manner and being brave is part of that. You may have a case where a person was given a medication and it made them act mean and scary but you learn to think fast and be brave. Or when someone is up and talking but ate something they were allergic to and they code. You work so hard to keep them alive that honestly you don't have time to be scared. Nursing takes all kinds of people but with time and skills, you will know if you have that quality. First and foremost Alexa be you because we need all types of nurses.

While being brave may seem important and it can be. I think over time you build that bravery, because starting out in nursing is scary for everyone. As you build your nursing skills you will be more comfortable because you will know how to handle scary situations. I believe that when you get experience you build bravery. Hope this helps Alexa!

Kess’s Answer

"“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.”" - Franklin D. Roosevelt

I am wholeheartedly convinced that those who choose to venture into the healthcare field, particularly nurses, are embodiments of true courage. I also hold the belief that every healthcare professional carries a fear - a fear of causing harm to their patients, of making errors, and of potentially breaking the sacred trust bestowed upon them. Yet, despite these fears, they persist. They continue to serve, to heal, and to care. I believe this is because they understand that the well-being of their patients is paramount, and it's worth overcoming their fears.
