Like a good mystery? Love to see a detective put together clues to solve a crime? You may not realize it, but being a nurse is like being a detective. I compared what you need to be a detective with what you need to be a nurse and found these eight ways the two careers are similar:
Nurse Practitioner: A Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse who has specialized training and education which allows them to carry out many tasks normally performed by a doctor. Such tasks include diagnosing and treating illnesses and injuries. Some states allow practical nurses to write prescriptions.
Critical Care Nurse: A Critical Care Nurse works with seriously injured and ill patients in the hospital. This type of nurse works in the ICU (intensive care unit) or CCU (critical care unit). Their job is to care for patients who are being treated for serious and life-threatening illnesses.
With over 35 years of nursing experience, Nurse Mentor Nancy Banfield Johnson, RN, MSN, ANP, helps nurses solve challenges in their nursing practice through her speeches, workshops, consulting and writing.
5. Both skillfully ask questions. Detectives and Nurses get to the heart of a matter without putting somebody on their guard or making them unnecessarily uncomfortable.
