4 Soft Skills Essential to Nursing

 In Nurses Weekly

Most nurses have excellent clinical skills that they learned through their education and on the job. Soft skills, however, are usually traits that cannot be taught. They affect the patient-nurse relationship and contribute to the relationship of the nurse with other interdisciplinary team members and the communities where the nurse practices. Therefore, it is vital for nurses to develop soft skills that will enhance teamwork and collaboration and lead to improving patient outcomes.
