Are all nurses extroverts? - Page 2Register Today!
- Oct 2, '12 by AnonRNCNot at all! In one of my nursing classes, we all took personality tests and we were about 50-50 introverts/extroverts. There are all kinds of nursing and all kinds of nurses.
- Oct 2, '12 by modgoth1Absolutely not! Introverts totally rock!!
- Oct 5, '12 by GeneralJinjurMy clinical group did the Myers Briggs and all came out as introverts. Some of the shyness will be overcome with experience (I remember feeling so awkward about walking into a LTC patient's room because it felt like marching into their home). And I agree 100% with the poster who mentioned that they are more willing to listen to a patient thanks to being an introvert. I'm happy with nursing, but I do not want to go to any kind of social event after a hard shift!
- Oct 5, '12 by NurseCardQuote from Katy642Oh heavens, yes. I'm very introverted by nature, and I've known other nurses who were as well.I'm a high school student who's thinking of becoming a nurse, but I'm kind of second guessing this because I recently heard that nurses are all extroverts. I'm shy and kind if an introvert. I was wondering if anyone knows if this would affect my ability to be a good nurse. Do you know any nurses who are introverts?
- Oct 6, '12 by rubatoI'm a complete extrovert and it's a bad thing. I talk too much, have to force myself not to share too much, and have a hard time slowing down sometimes to listen before I jump. I think being introverted could be a huge advantage to being a nurse.
