Today’s the 202nd anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and International Nurses’ Day. I’m proud to be a nurse and always will be. I highly recommend the nursing profession to anyone at any stage of their working life.
Skills and knowledge I’ve learnt over the years of being a nurse have been applicable in both the many work roles and in my personal life. I have learnt resilience, leadership, compassion, empathy, technical skills, how to adapt to a wide range of people and situations, valuing diversity, supporting others, professionalism, and autonomy.
There aren’t many professions that will teach you all this!
