As a fairly new nurse (16 months), I’m curious what it is you look for in a nurse who works for/with you. What qualities and personality traits do you like to work with?
I realize this doesn’t exactly follow the pre-med vibe of your blog, but I thought, “who better to answer this than Dr Cranquis?”
Thanks very much for all you do!
Ooh, I have a VIBE! Well I love your question, and thanks for giving me the honor of expounding on Dr. Cranquis’ Mental Checklist for Awesome Nurses that I Like to Work With. (This list assumes the prerequisites of: a standard amount of training, the ability to speak understandable English, and acceptable levels of personal hygiene.)
- Must have a sense of humor, and the more warped the better — BUT must also be able to shut that humor off at the drop of a glove when an emergency arises.
- Must have a fluffy compassionate outside — wrapped around a crunchy tough-love center that doesn’t let patients get away with crap.
- Must have an ever-expanding storehouse of clinical knowledge based on experience — BUT must be willing to modify or change his/her behaviors when presented with new data.
- Must be able to tolerate gross or awkward procedures/conditions/patients — OR be able to gracefully arrange for another nurse to handle it without just “disappearing” when work needs to be done.
- Must be able to listen to the doctor’s rambling story or pun-filled joke with minimal eye-rolling. Must be able to look at the doctor’s latest cute pictures of Baby Cranquis with appropriate “ooh’s” and “ahhh’s” and “oh he looks so handsome just like you’s”.
- Must be curious about things “outside the scope” of nursing. I love when my nurses ask me how to interpret an xray or ask to hear the pneumonia.
- Must have a good sense of self-esteem. I always feel awkward working around nurses who are timid and think that any un-positive comment is a direct attack on their person.
- Must be able to provide and receive feedback well. Everyone needs to be given feedback on their performance, doctors and nurses — and sometimes a nurse is the best person to point out something that the doctor could improve, in order to improve care and patient safety.
- Must never EVER make a complaint or a grumble within hearing-range of a patient. I am whole-heartedly in favor of back-hallway eye-rolling, blowing off steam and complaining about the latest stupidiot to stagger through our clinic — but patients must never feel those sentiments. All patient care must be professional and equal, regardless of the patient’s lack of functioning brain cells, survival instincts, or morality.
Good luck with your career! And thanks for reading. :)

The Sights and Sounds of Iceland’s Gullfoss Falls
Gullfoss Falls is one of Iceland’s most stunning sights and most popular tourist attractions. Instagrammers trek to the site to photograph its rushing waters, frequent rainbows and 32-meter (105-foot) drop. Now with video, the sound and movement of the falls comes to life.
