    Learn to listen to your intuition. If "your gut" tells you something isn't right, more times than not, you should investigate things further. If you aren't happy in your current job, look for something else. The great thing about nursing is that there are so many possibilities for us to explore! Be courteous and polite to your patients, coworkers and everyone you come into contact with.

    The best advice I can offer to nurses (especially new nurses) out there is this:

    Happy nurses week!

    Pro nurses tips:

    1) Nobody knows everything, not even the doctor. Ask questions and you will learn miles.

    2) Cry if you have to - we all do it.

    3) There's a reason why we're only required to work 3 12hr shifts, remember that.

    4) Take care of yourself and you'll be the best nurse to your patients.

    Happy nurses week!

    Look out for one another... if you get time, check on your fellow nurses mainly if they are running around like a chicken with the head cut off... work as a team and make it happen..
