It takes many, many (many) qualities to be a great nurse. Is it possible to boil these qualities down to three words?
Probably not, but this is exactly what we asked you on our Funny Nurses Facebook page, and many of you were up to the challenge! We want to highlight some favorites in the space below, but that is no reason to stop now. Keep letting us know what it means to be a great nurse in the comments below or over on Facebook. We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
What does it take to be a great nurse (in three words or less)
Chocolate, wine and Jesus.
Gallons of coffee!
–Barbara Jeany Meetze Hockett
A BIG heart!
–Michelle Leigh Gullick
Dr. Scholl’s inserts.
Nerves of steel!
–Janice Poston Woodberry
Organization skills, time management and high bullsh*t tolerance level.
A strong bladder. Strong stomach. Empathy.
And, of course, one final note that we all know to be the real truth about it (and why we allowed a few artistic liberties on the three-word limit):
A great nurse could never be summed up in just three words.
