As a nurse, communication skills are essential. A nurse needs to know when and how to speak so others will understand what they are saying. They also understand it is important to quietly listen to the information medical professionals, patients or patients’ families are providing.

Nurses are often the ones that spend the most time with patients and their families. Although doctors will give information to sick individuals and their loved ones, nurses will often times break the complex medical terminology down so it is easier for the average person to understand. Doctors may not have time or the best “bedside manner” to interpret this information, so nurses step in to put patients and families more at ease. Many patients remember nurses the most during a hospital stay and will look to them for knowledge and advice on their condition and care.

Nurses must also be able to listen. It is very important that nurses are able to listen to doctors and other medical professionals for instructions for patient care as well as patients and their families. It can be the kindness nurses show by listening to patient’s stories and complaints that will make them feel at ease. Often times, patients don’t have close families or visitors to cheer them up or make them feel better. Nurses will usually step in to fill this role.
