View Full Version : Finding balance in nursing

03-10-2013, 05:33 PM
I am an undergraduate nursing student. I have an upcoming research paper with the topic question of "How can practising nurses create balance between performing their professional duties and being empathetic towards their patients?" I am not aiming to find the answer to being a perfect nurse, but I want to find some possible strategies for finding balance between the technical/clinical side and the patient oriented side of nursing. I am basing most of my research off of published sources, but it would be interesting to hear perspectives from practicing nurses.
Based on your experience as a nurse, what suggestions/comments would you have?
