Even the best workplace environments can be challenging at times. Nurses need to deal with the demands of patients, as well as with issues related to coworkers and supervisors. It isn’t always easy. The best way to handle frustration in the workplace is by being a better communicator. Speak up and talk with your team if you have an issue or a concern.

Try speaking directly to an individual, rather than allowing your frustration to stay pent up. Good communication can often clear up any confusion, and it’s the best way to try to resolve issues.

This is true not only in nursing, but in all areas of life. Express your concerns, talk with co-workers, and make sure that issues are resolved in a way that feels fair and allows for the situation to improve.
