    Nice nurses don't use aggression when standing up for their patients, but they utilize assertiveness training skills instead.

    Good nurses believe being a patient advocate is more worthy than kissing admins butts.

    "Nice "nurses don't refuse over time....."Good" nurses believe that the lives of their patients are more important then the lives of their own families...........(Thankful that I am not "good "or "nice" any longer-I enjoy time at home with my loved ones)

    DON'T: Look the other way when you can make a difference * Make excuses or blame others

    DO: Accept responsibility for the consequences of your choices, not only for what you do but what you don't do * Think about consequences on yourself and others before you act * Think long-term * Do what you can do to make things better * Set a good example

    We've been conned:

    Nice Nurses don't: ever think of themselves

    Good Nurses: ALWAY put others before themselves!

    We are expected to somehow live this way! It is a fine line we walk! We lose many because of this, we burn out fast. We need to take care of ourselves first, like everybody else! AS women and nurses we are doubly troubled by this!

    as nice nurses we are every body's doormat!
    as good nurses we are not intimidated by the admins bull and are not afraid to stand up for our patients or ourselves!
