As a nurse do you collaborate with others? The truth is, going it alone can lead to overwork and burnout for you, and can create unnecessary stress and tension in your workplace. It can breed competition, fear, dishonesty, tunnel vision and inefficiency. Does that sound familiar to you? I know as nurses we tend to think we have to do it all ourselves and asking for help is a sign of weakness or that no one will help but by thinking this way you limit yourself and set yourself up for having a miserable day. I know, I’ve been there.
