Do nurses ask for help? 

In my experience, not so much. What tends to happen is the following…

Charge Nurse: “Jane, do you need anything? How are you doing?”

Jane: “Fine. Nope, I am all good.” (While Jane may be silently drowning and desperately in need of help)

Why do we do this?
  • In my book, Stop Nurse Burnout, I speak of the lone ranger syndrome and our conditioning as nurses.
  • In this video, I talk about asking for help and how it can support your nursing career development.

What would you add to this discussion? Have you ever asked for help as a nurse? If so, what was the experience like? Did asking for help make your nursing career any easier, better, or some mixture of both? Let’s talk about it! Share a comment below and thanks for watching.
