Critical Thinking
To excel in the nursing field, having a sharp and critical mind is crucial. The ability to make important decisions on the spot is necessary for a nurse.
I chose this career because I am the type of person that cares about helping others, so I found this career interesting and quite relatable. The duty of a nurse is to provide care and comfort, and I personally believe that nurses carry great responsibility and must be credited for their fine work as people who supply a good environment to heal and be cared for. Although the job may be tiring to the mind and body, it brings a warm feeling knowing that you are the reason why someones struggle is made a little bit easier.
