Common Sense & Nursing

  1. Overheard this morning:

    Nurse #1: I dunno about the new girl, I don't think she can handle it.

    Nurse #2: Why?

    Nurse #1: She has to be told everything. She has no sense. I mean, you'd think she'd use a little common sense!

    What do you think?

    Is "common sense" something that good nurses have intuitively before they have experience, or is "common sense" nursing something that is built by experience?
