Emotions and nursing: Is it okay to cry on the job?
To show emotion or not to show emotion? That is the question—for nurses, at least. And it’s a very difficult question, we’ll admit.
In this week’s episode of the “The Katie Duke Show” on ScrubsBeat, Katie shares her opinion on nurses revealing their emotions in the workplace, and why she thinks it important for nurses to allow themselves to be human when it comes to moments both celebratory and saddening.
What do you think…should nurses keep their sentiments under lock and key when they’re on the clock, or it is appropriate for them share? Will answer vary? We want to hear from you in the comments section below!
