To be a nurse you need to be passionate about nursing. Nursing is not just a job. You touch and are touch by the lives of those you care for. To be a nurse you need to be compassionate, caring, empathetic, and non-judgemental. Today's nurse also needs be culturally competent and culturally aware because you care for a diverse population of people. I could go on and on, but I think you get the general idea. Do you have these qualities ? ; then nursing is for you.
