WATCH: What can a magician teach a nurse?


The Magic of Empathy

What can a magician teach nurses about caring for each other? Believe it or not, a good magician can teach you a lot. You see, to be a good magician, you have to get your audience to believe in you. You have to get them to see what you want them to see.

Working in a nursing environment isn’t all that different. To work well as a team, we all have to trust each other and allow each other to see who we are and what we’re trying to do. We have to have empathy.
