When it comes to life and soft skills, nursing is a field that demands plenty. Compassion, empathy, communication, leadership stress management and informatics skills needed to navigate a hospital and clinic’s record systems are all important soft skills.

Core life skills are taught in nursing education programs but new nurses need to expand on those skills when they start working with patients.  Employers expect their nurses to possess those life skills.

Many health care establishments have realized that hiring nurses with good communication, leadership, problem- solving and stress management skills ultimately translates into a healthier bottom line.

Both doctors and nurses use math every day while providing health care for people around the world.  Doctors and nurses use math when they write prescriptions or administer medication.  Medical professionals use math when drawing up statistical graphs of epidemics or success rates of treatments.  Math applies to x-rays and CAT scans.  Numbers provide an abundance of information for medical professionals.  It is reassuring for the general public to know that our doctors and nurses have been properly trained by studying mathematics and its uses for medicine.

Nurses also use ratios and proportions when administering medication.  Nurses need to know how much medicine a patient is to be give depending on patient’s weight.
