Ever get a hunch about a patient’s condition but can’t put your finger on why you feel the way you do? Perhaps it’s the way a fellow nurse reacts to your proposal, or a strange feeling that your supervisor isn’t happy with your charting. Not everything can be worked out with a pros and cons list. Much of working with people is following your intuition.
And not only do our bodies have a powerful language all their own, they’ve also got quite a lot to say about what we should do in certain situations. You know how this is, especially when you have to make a judgment call in a life or death situation!
Want to learn to use your nursing intuition to your advantage in your career? Check out these work-related examples of times when your stomach might sour or your body tenses, and learn how to uncover your natural intuitive abilities just by listening to your body’s physical cues.
