The #1 trait of all successful nurses

What do I consider to be the most important personality trait of a nurse? Caring? Compassionate? There are SO many things a nurse should be, but if I had to pick one trait that trumps them all. The ONE trait that will almost always guarantee success…


Passion and perseverance over a long period of time. Sticking to your goal regardless of how it goes (day in and day out).

Dealing with the CRAP we face every single day without losing your “why”… why you decided to become a nurse.

Having a strong “bounce-back”.
