Remember when you held your little bundle of joy for the first time? Your life most likely changed that day in many ways. You were now responsible for the health and safety for a life other than your own. Your entry into parenthood has prepared you for nursing in more ways than you realize. Here are a few ways how…
1. Responsibility to be a care taker.
As a parent, from day one, you are given a new life to care for. You are responsible for treating your child’s needs in numerous ways, from cleanliness to feeding and proper care. This same responsibility is true for nurses. As a nurse, you are responsible to treat the whole patient. This can include dietary elements, bathing, and overall wellness.
2. Advocating for others.
Before your child learns to speak, you are their voice – especially when it comes to health. When visiting the doctor for assessments and checkups, the parent is asked questions about progression and any illnesses. The parent is responsible for taking note of any needs the child may have so they can ensure they have the treatment they need, similar to a nurse and their patients. Nurses advocate for their patients to make sure their needs are evaluated and cared for.
3. Continuous Learning.
As children grow through different stages, not only are they discovering new things, but their care givers do as well. As each new milestone is reached, parents discover new needs for their children’s development and safety. It is a continuous learning process as each child may have different needs or progression levels. This is similar to the patients a nurse cares for. Each patient has their specific needs and pace for health improvement and healing. As patients meet new milestones in their recovery, nurses assist with helping meet their needs. Not only do nurses learn about patients’ needs, but also the new advances in healthcare. As technology and healthcare evolve, nurses must continue to stay up to date on best practices.
4. Critical Thinking skills.
It is important for caregivers to be able to not only assess needs but also know how to react and provide the proper care needed. Parents and nurses must both possess a special skill set that includes critical thinking. In the case of emergencies or crisis prevention, knowing what actions need to be taken can be crucial. Parents often use critical thinking skills and may not even realize it. Part of training to become a nurse involves developing critical thinking skills to ensure nurses possess the knowledge needed for quick response and proper care.
5. Tough stomach.
Cleaning bodily fluids is a typical part of parenting for most. From spit up, to changing diapers, to the first stomach bug… parents are usually the ones responsible for cleaning up the mess. Nurses have the same types of responsibilities in caring for patients and assisting with cleanliness and comfort. Being exposed to patient’s bodily fluids is not for the faint of heart and can require a tough stomach to handle. What about the first broken bone or sight of blood? Parents are often the “first responders” to these types of injuries, and for nurses it is part of their job.
