A nurse’s daily emotions may ride on a roller-coaster. From feeling touched by the kindness of a patient to feeling anger at the actions of a doctor, nurses can go through the whole gamut of the human experience in just one shift. However, not all of the emotions a nurse feels in a day are negative. In fact, many of them are positive emotions, the kinds that remind us why we became nurses to begin with. Negative emotions happen, but we need to learn how to manage them, redirect them and ultimately overcome them in our pursuit of nursing.
