What The Attributes That I Need To Become A Nurse?

  • A strong desire to become a nurse. Nursing is a calling. If it is your heart’s desire to serve your fellow–man when in need, chances are that you will make a success of nursing as a career. 
  • The ability to work as a member of a healthcare team. You will be working closely with other nursing professionals, doctors, specialists and adjunctive healthcare workers like physiotherapists, dieticians etc. 
  • The ability to work for long hours continuously. Nurses working in a hospital will need to work in day or night duty shifts-typically for 12 hours continuously. Of course this may vary depending on labor laws and regulations applicable in the specific country, state and/or hospital. 
  • You need to like working with people. The bottom line is that in the nursing profession everything revolves around people, and as a professional nurse, you will be working with people, be it patients, fellow professionals, student nurses or the public in general. 
  • Intelligence. Both a high IQ (intelligence quotient) and even more so a high EQ (emotional intelligence) are important prerequisites for pursuing a successful career in nursing.
