The Soul of a Nurse—What Does It Take?

Happy National Nurses Week!

It takes a very special kind of person to be a nurse. For one thing, you can't be squeamish. For another, you've got to be gentle, compassionate, patient, organized ...

... well, you tell us—what else goes on that list? What traits make an amazing nurse? How would you describe the soul, the heart, the mind of a nurse?

Let us know in the comments below, and at the end of National Nurses Week, we'll select five commenters at random to win a $50 gift code to the WGU Online Store.

And for extra entries, hit us up on Twitter. Use hashtag #WGULovesNurses to tell us your thoughts and to participate in #NationalNursesWeek conversations with us.
