3 Reasons Nurses Need to Stand Strong

Unread post by Kareen » Fri May 08, 2015 2:59 pm

Before discussing why nurses need to stand strong, we must first examine what it means for a nurse to stand strong. While there are many definitions, I think the one that most accurately captures the message of standing strong is to “do the right thing.” Nurses have
the unique ability to advocate for people who are at their most vulnerable. They have the ability to advocate for their profession and colleagues to ensure the nursing profession is
well represented. However, above all else, they have the responsibility to ensure they are
delivering adequate self-care.

Nursing is a profession that both allows and requires you to stand strong. It could be said that standing strong is a requirement of the job, but at the same time it’s also a benefit. Many people benefit when nurses take care of themselves. In fact, if nurses don’t take care of themselves they won’t be able to take care of others. If you don’t stand strong for yourself, how are you going to stand strong for anyone else?

Your Patients
Patients come to the hospitals when they are in their most vulnerable state. Most of them would much rather be at home with their families. Many times they are alone in the hospitals and may not be able to advocate for themselves. As a nurse, it is your duty to
provide patients with the highest level of care possible. You must stand strong to advocate for the needs and desires of your patients.

Your Family
No matter what size your family is, there are always going to be opportunity for conflict.
Your child may become upset with you because you won’t let them have or do something. Your spouse may get irritated because of something you ask. You may not always be the favorite, however you know that you have to continue to stand strong and be the backbone of the household.
You Standing strong for yourself can be a complicated matter. On the one hand, you
want to be a strong advocate for the causes you believe in. On the other hand, you must ensure that you’re taking care of yourself so that you can continue to care for others.
Sometimes standing strong means sitting down. It means getting a massage and relaxing a little.

I completely agree with these strategies, with how healthcare is right now being glorified is far from what nurses are experiencing. So much great content in this post. Learn about coursework writing service uk

Yes take the charge nurse with you and tell them you recieve permission, Assignment Help Experts and that you know patients come first and it was imperative you went home. Since she is unapproachable, it may be best you talk to her alone because with those type of people, they feel ganged up against, and they must always feel superior. So present yourself as a human, win over the managers sympathy and you should be fine. Remember to stand you ground, but do not come off too strong.

Hi I work in a hospital. Last week I had to go home early due to personal reasons. I was very tearful that morning and felt I wasn't looking or being professional and that I would worry patients if I was crying in front of them. My friend said get yaself home you should be here. She then said I'll speak to the nurse in charge. I then came with her to ask If it was ok for me to go home, she said yes it's fine but just asked the manager, my friend came with me for support as my manager is unapproachable we knocked on the office door no answer. Write My Cheap Essay & I went back to the charge nurse and I said she wasn't in, charge nurse said it's fine go home.
