How does a nurse not get attached to their patient?

How do you avoid emotional transference? Are nurses supposed to not ‘care’ about their care? How much is too much?

And is there a drawback to allowing emotional transference?

Will you miss or make a mistake if you get too attached to your patient?

I offer my thoughts.

Some of the video content and conversation is out of context, but I thought the information was valuable and wanted to share it here. I hope you don’t mind. Oh, there might be some colorful language.

Every nurse feels overwhelmed

Do you feel overwhelmed? (Will it ever go away?)

Nobody said being a nurse would be easy.

There isn’t a nurse out there that hasn’t felt overwhelmed at some point in their career. I have felt it multiple times! This feeling is so common, it’s almost a requirement. Do you pedal back… or do you lean in?

Welcome to nursing.

The GRE for NP school?

Does the GRE matter? Does it have anything to do with advanced practice nursing? Why do you have to take it to enter NP school?

Here are three things I think about with any standardized exam:

1. A minimum standard for entrance.
2. Evaluate your ability to analyze (problem solve).
3. How do you perform under pressure?
