Many nurses enter their nursing careers, wanting to help patients. We want to spend time with our patients and their families, helping them along their healing journey. However, once we get into the nursing profession, what tends to happen?
We realize our jobs are super busy. We are given competing priorities that must meet the strategic goals of our organization. We have little to no time to do the things we really love, which is spending time with our patients.
In today’s final video of our three-part series on the art of nursing, I share a simple way that we can bring this presence into our clinical practice. To be a nurse means lending a helping hand. What if the ‘hand’ we lend was able to support the art of nursing in the science of our careers?
What do you think? Have you ever done this and noticed a difference? If you don’t make the time to do what this video shares… has it impacted your nursing profession in any way? I’d love to hear from your experience. Share a comment below and thanks for watching!
