Humanity

Nursing has always expected nurses to be superhuman. We need to learn to be able to accept our humanity, our weaknesses, our mistakes and avoid judgment. We need to stop expecting perfection and teach students the ideal vs reality so the don't feel demoralized when they can't be all things to all people.

Hi Diana:

Thanks for joining our conversation. I agree that people often expect nurses to be superhuman, especially during this pandemic. How did your nursing instructors address that? Is there something more they could have done to prepare you for that and give you the support you need to not feel demoralized?
