Nurse’s Definition Of Caring

Caring is always keeping the well-being of your patient above keeping the doctors happy, the family happy, and your boss happy. It’s taking the time to talk to your patients and getting to know them as people, not diseases or surgeries. It’s asking them if you can do anything else every time you leave. It’s helping your CNAs by taking them to the bathroom, helping them get up, setting up trays, or even Feeding them(on those nights when you only have a few patients).
It’s knowing that you did the best you could every day when you leave the floor…and it’s caring enough to leave work behind you when you leave the floor.

Caring is taking the time and the trouble to learn as much as you can so that you help your patients as much as possible.

It’s knowing that you did the best you could every day when you leave the floor…and it’s caring enough to leave work behind you when you leave the floor.

Caring comes from within that nurse. It’s in her eyes, it’s in her voice, it’s in her touch, it’s in her listening to the patient, it’s in her compassion, it’s in her sharing of herself and time with her patient, a nurse that has a love for human life and her profession will carry that love into caring for her patient.

Caring is not taking short cuts that compromise the services you provide
