Nicole’s Answer

You will be regarded as a wonderful RN! It's important to be a team player in nursing because there will be days you're drowning in work while your coworker seems to have the easier assignment. By helping each other you're improving patient care and possibly lowering the risk of an elderly patient falling out of bed.

And as for being a hard worker, nursing school is hard but it's definitely doable if you study hard and keep practicing NCLEX questions. There's a skill to learning how to beat answer NCLEX questions and you can start any time. You'll learn a lot too because many NCLEX apps give you the rationale behind the right answer and why the wrong ones are wrong!

Good luck

Tyjha, your strengths will be a benefit as an RN and as your experience and confidence grows as you work as a nurse, you will develop many other strengths such as critical thinking to recognize what is best for the patient, professional persuasiveness to communicate with the patient to help them help themselves. As well as, Individuality and leadership as you learn to work independently and delegate to lead your support staff. Good luck

Shelley recommends the following next steps:

There are endless areas of health care nurses work. It is common for interested people to shadow a nurse during the work day. Ask your family Doctor's nurse or clinic nurse or school ( high school or college) to help you shadow a nurse in or close to the type of nursing you are interested in. Just ask, Nurses will help you :)

The best way to get an answer to this question is to contact a nurse and ask the question in person. A good way to do this is to locate the local professional association to which nurses belong in your area to phone the local contact person for an in person conversation and possibly arrange to attend a meeting, so that you can meet professionals and get to know them and their area more fully. Here is a link that will allow you to locate your local professional association to which pathologists belong in your area: ##

Cristin’s Answer

for patients and staff , This is Today’s ever-changing Primary Care (family and community care) environment requires more than ever that nurses are adept at tapping into the rich experiences of a team-based environment for patient centered care. This is especially in the public healthcare sector where clinics function best when they have “patient-centered primary care home” (PCPCH) status, And therefore often have behavioral health/social workers, counselors, dental care providers as well as care managers/ care coordinators all on-site (called “co-location). This model of care is very satisfying for patients and staff, and is proving to be highly effective in the long run at improving the health of our communities via PREVENTION while also lowering healthcare costs by avoiding unnecessary procedures, emergency room use and other excesses. While all this sounds like an easy win:win, it is important that those who choose this career path are hard workers, because the work is challenging and requires you to really get to know patients “where they live and breathe.” That is not always easy and requires continually checking in with how your communication, cultural awareness and trauma-informed skills are affecting those you serve.

Cristin recommends the following next steps:

Explore primary care vs. acute care.
Explore prevention and health promotion.
Familiarize yourself with concepts of “intercultural competence” and “trauma-informed care.”

Being a RN is challenging and rewarding profession. The work requires strong critical thinking as well as physical stamina. In my experience, there are many environments where RNs work. Your strengths would be assets in any career.

Tamara recommends the following next steps:

If you are still interested in nursing, I suggest attending an informational session at any school that has a nursing program.
