What are the most important skills you need to succeed as a icu/picu/nicu nurse? And what are the biggest challenges you face on a day to day basis?

I am an aspiring college student-athlete and nursing has always seemed like the perfect job. However I’m trying to figure out if nursing is the right career path for me.

As a nurse, when in your career, and how did you deal with the first patient that passed away? How or did this impact how you cared for patients afterwards?

I want to be a nurse, more specifically, I want to work with sick children. I want to make them smile even when they do not feel like it. I want to be a comforting presence to them when they are scared or in pain. I am even thinking I want to work with children who are in treatment for Cancer. #nursing #nurse #registered-nurses #pediatrics #nurse-practitioner #icu-nurse #hospice-nurse

As a health care worker, when is a time you had difficulty setting your feeling aside and became emotional in front of a patient?

I will be attending nursing school this Fall, but have been thinking a lot about being in difficult situations with patients. Do nurses really become desensitized to tragic events? I know it can be difficult to witness and see death all throughout your career but is there any time that it is acceptable to grieve with a patient, to an extent? I am an emotional person, but I'd like to believe that I can be stronger holding back my feelings when working as an RN. #medicine #nursing #healthcare #emergency-medicine #icu-nurse

what is the most difficult task of being a nurse practitioner and a ER nurse?

I'm attending college this fall and I've had experience with nursing through volunteer work so I always thought the hardest thing would be getting attached to the patient and not in a weird way but mostly like in a nurturing way as you spend so much time with them so I wanted to know from a different point of view if there were more difficult tasks other then that #doctor #medicine #nurse #healthcare #pre-med #emergency-medicine #icu-nurse #nurse-majors #hospital-and-health-care

If you won the lottery would you still keep your job?

I'm a pre-nursing student that wants to know if people are just working for a paycheck or if they are actually passionate about the work that they are doing. #nursing #nurse #registered-nurses #nurse-practitioner #icu-nurse #hospice-nurse

Besides Pediatricians and OBGYNs, what are other jobs that work with newborn babies?

I am a sophomore in Boston and I am interested in working in the medical field. Specifically, I want to work with newborns, but I do not think I want to deliver babies. I am wondering what other options I have, if any. Thank you for your thoughts! #nursing #nurse #babies #icu-nurse
