In this article, the writer discusses that the field of nursing means different things to different people. The writer notes that some do not see how important nurses are in the daily running of a hospital or doctor's office, while others feel that nurses are so valuable that medicine could hardly continue without them. The writer believes that nursing is a noble and interesting occupation and that it is also one of the more rewarding and worthwhile pursuits that anyone could have. The beliefs of B. Neuman regarding nursing are discussed in comparison to the writer's own ideas. The writer concludes that nursing is both an art and a science based on caring; it is the training of a human to care for another human through knowledge and skills that meet the holistic needs of that human.
Personality and Career Paths
Personality and Career Paths
From the Paper:"Another thing that these individuals must be able to show is a certain amount of professional detachment. While it is very important to be empathetic to the patients and their families, too much of this and too much emotional involvement is also a problem. This can be just as troubling as not having enough emotional involvement or caring, as both can cause the nurse's career to suffer. For those that are too caring and emotionally attached, they may feel as though they have lost a loved one or a very close friend when a patient in their care passes away and they may have trouble focusing on their job and delivering the proper care to other patients because of this. There must be a balance between a genuine caring about the lives of others and the understanding that there is also a job to do, which will not stop when one life is ended. Being able to balance these things and being able to multi-task and stay organized are the most important personality traits that someone that works as a critical care nurse needs to succeed."
