You work well under pressure and you’re always quick on your feet. Your only downfall might be multitasking! Sometimes when you’ve got too much on your plate, you can feel a bit overwhelmed. You’d make a great nurse in a more calm setting, but the ER might not be for you!
You Could Possibly Be A Nurse!
Nursing is just not for you! Don’t worry, not everyone has what it takes to be a nurse. That’s why nursing is considered a work of head and heart. Though you most definitely have the compassion and intelligence, you can easily feel frazzled when the heat is on! You prefer peace, quiet, and calm whenever possible in your life. Nursing is rarely predictable or stable in terms of what to expect on a daily basis!
