Teamwork - not as easy as it sounds

Being a Nurse is not an easy thing.

Everyday we deal with people when they are at their worst, feeling like crap and more often than not it gets taken out on us, the nurses.

This comes with the job.

This is why us nurses are patient, tolerant and understanding people (most of the time). Otherwise we wouldn’t be nursing full.stop.

But when work colleagues are draining more of your energy than the actual patients, something is not right.

Dealing with personalities comes with the job and Teamwork is super important in nursing!

This is why being a nurse must also come with some level of being able to work in a team, when a team consists of 10 different opinions and ways of doing things.

So frustrating right!

The thing is though, when you step through those doors and you’re at work ready to help your patients and your team, you need to put your personal issues/problems that you may have outside of work or, that you may have with colleagues at work aside.

This is imperative in achieving the best possible patient outcome! The reason we are AT WORK!

At the end of the day you don’t actually have to like the people that you work with (although that helps tremendously!) but you do have to work with them in a team to achieve the same goal.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, don’t let other peoples negativity get you down.

Don’t let people steal your energy every time you’re at work. Keep them at arms length. Work with them, yes, but don’t let it get to you.


You are the only one who can control the way you react to other people.

Deal with it in the best way that suits you.

I normally have a whinge to my husband (who half the time doesn’t understand what I’m talking about anyways, but still, he tries) and then he cheers me up and I’m all good again! 

So when you’ve found a nice team to work with, appreciate them and take care of each other.

Your patients are probably the happiest because you WORK TOGETHER.

Teamwork. Not as easy as it sounds…
