    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?
    Oh heavens, yes. I'm very introverted by nature, and I've known other nurses who were as well.

    I'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.
