Nursing Is Not Just A Profession; Its A Lifestyle By Gbemi Nurse With Difference by katty : August 29, 2018, 09:08:08 AM
Nursing is a caring profession, it focus on the Whole patient (Total spirit, soul and body) thereby setting itself apart from other disciplines through the act of positive care approach.
 
Today, nursing profession transformation is a vision of Florence Nightingale who brought nursing into lime light during the Crimean war in the year 1854, Caring for the sick and injured. Caring is an integral component of nursing profession focus on evidence based practice.

THE LIFESTYLE OF A NURSE
 
EVERY GREAT NURSE should possess the following characteristics;
 
1. A Caring Nature: To care is to provide serious attention or consideration when implementing patients need. Care is one of the basic skills a NURSE should possess to enable him/her give adequate and complete medical treatment.
 
2. Detailed Oriented: Nursing must be able to give a detailed/comprehensive information or knowledge about the patient disease condition and also the complete physical and mental assessment of the patient.
 
3. Emotionally Stable: A NURSE is always smiling when giving care or administering treatment to the patient. smiles help to achieve organizational patient-satisfaction.
 
4. Extraordinary communication skills: A NURSE possess  a good communicating skills that will enhance or facilitate a strong relationship between the client and the care giver.
 
5. Great Judgement; A NURSE must be able to give a good judgment about the patient condition using her critical thinking skills to improve the outcomes of patients.
 
The most important thing a NURSE needs is Compassion. He/she has to be able to empathize with the patients and be their advocator. Compassion and advocacy go hand-in-hand.
 
Nurses are the last line of defense for patients who often are not strong enough to advocate for themselves. It is up to her to make sure that they are safe and receive the most appropriate level of care.
 
It takes skills, a Sharp intellectuals, self-knowledge empathy and Compassion to be a NURSE.
 
With all these view, I have always come to a conclusion that NURSING is not just a PROFESSION But a lifestyle and let begin to show all  these qualities.
 
 _'To become great in life we need to have one mind, one dream, one vision and one NURSING. The future of nursing lies in education and the new future generation of Nurses will soon emerge.
