  • Comment on: Are nurses born or made?

    teresa chinn's comment 7 January, 2013 6:05 pm

    I love this blog and it raises so many points - I agree good nurses are generally good people. I believe that compassion is a human trait that we all have but to give compassionate care we do need the rights skills, the right environment and the right support. Compassion needs to be nurtured and cherished in order for it to grow and flourish. The start of 2013 will be challenging for nursing but if we support each other and look forward we can use the Francis report positively as you have described to ensure that a culture of compassionate care is apparent in every organisation and that each and every patient receives the care they need.

    This is an utterly brilliant and insightful blog - well done. It is a fine balance and I often think that this is where the ART of nursing comes into play

    Thank you for sharing this

    What great news - and I agree with Patrick (above) the proportion of people who do not have internet access is low, whilst we should provide for them we should not let this detract from the benefits of making this provision.

    Yes seriously ! I thought that the way it was shot was not glossy or airbrushed but a real snapshot of real nursing ... I guess it comes down to personal taste. However it is never the less admirable that the RCN are promoting nursing, as Jenni says "Bravo!"

    I love this video - it made me smile and brought a tear to my eye. It showed real passion and pride and what our role should be - care, compassion and expertise
