Nurses are on the frontlines delivering care and ensuring that a patient’s safety and best interest remain at the center of care. Key nursing values promote a holistic approach to patient care – one that incorporates not only clinical responsibilities, but also compassion, cultural sensitivity, situational awareness and tech savviness.


A nurse’s day is jam-packed with activity. Whether it is direct patient care – from admitting and transferring patients or performing physical exams and administering personalized clinical interventions – or internal processes


like documenting care transitions or coordinating across the multi-disciplinary care team, nurses must multitask to stay on top of their workloads. Their days are highly mobile and physically demanding, and often characterized by inefficient processes that have them chasing information. Their days are heavily interrupted with nurses completing 100 tasks per shift, spending approximately three minutes on a task before being interrupted, while 48 percent of nurses cite a lack of communication takes time away from caring for patients.[1]
