While nursing is a job that involves being one on one with patients, it takes a team effort to ensure that the workplace runs smoothly.
This is especially true in healthcare facilities like hospitals, where many nurses are needed to care for patients with all types of ailments and issues. Short staffed facilities make it very difficult for nurses to do their job well. When everyone pulls together with the same goal and a positive attitude, it can make all the difference.
A strong community within the workplace helps each individual nurse to feel supported. Nurses often work long hours with little downtime, and knowing that there is a supportive staff to lean on can ease the burden. A strong community supports strong nurses.
