We hope you channeled your inner Rihanna. Many people don’t realize it, but the duties of a med-surg nurse are tough stuff. You’re not just a nurse—you are trained to know a huge range of medical conditions. Add a dash often having to think on your feet if something unexpected occurs with a patient. You’re an integral part of the patient’s first line of care. That alone should get a special med-surg nurse song for dancing to!
The daily life of a medical-surgical nurses job is enough to make the average Joe’s head spin. You put your critical thinking skills to the test while staying fully engaged on a physical, clinical, and emotional level. But that’s the best part of what being a med-surg nurse is all about. Compassion towards your patients is the fuel that drives and make the work you do day in and day out enjoyable. 📅
Medical-surgical nurses should be celebrated all year long, but at least we can place some extra emphasis on you during the first seven days of November.
