Fun and enlightening discussion?

  1. 0 As a student and a nurse, what's the most important thing you learned while in school and on the job? Anyone care to share? I thought this could be fun because everyone's view on the idea of "important" is different.

    The absolute most important thing I learned is to be receptive to advice, suggestions and criticism. That doesn't mean everything anyone tells you is right, but it enables people to make you a better nurse instead of putting their guard up around you.

    Hmm, this could be taken two ways for myself. The most important skill? Or the absolute most important concept?

    I'll go with the latter and say, treat the patient as a human being, (how you'd want to be treated, or a family member), and not as a dummy, there to serve only in your learning experience When you follow this simple rule, patients really appreciate your caring for them, and it makes everyone's life so much easier.
