    Hi guys! Welcome to Nursing.org. My name is Caroline Porter Thomas, and I’m from the nursing YouTube channel EmpoweRN. This is the fourth video on How to Prevent Nursing Burnouts. So, my fourth tip that I have for you is to find positive role models.

    Every day that you are on the job, every day that you’re working, you’re interacting with other nurses. Or, if you’re a nursing student, when you’re watching other nurses, try to find people that stand out as positive role models. As you work in the workplace, you will find people that are bad role models. You will find people that will show you what not to do. And you will also find people that will show you what to do.

    So, what I always look for is people that genuinely are nice. Nice, and smart, because you have to be at the level where you know what you’re doing. But, there are nurses out there that are unreal. And watching a nurse perform her duties or interact with a patient, you can learn so much during those interactions.

    One time, I remember, I was watching a nurse. A patient was actually yelling at her. And she handled it so well that they were actually laughing by the end of the session. And I couldn’t believe it. So, you can learn so much just from being aware of what’s going on around you. So, I encourage you to find some really good role models.

    Also, just in case you can’t find any good role models, then find a really good book or maybe a movie or something that will help you fall in love with nursing, because there’s so much you can love about this job. I hope this tip helped you out a lot.

    So, please subscribe, and, as always, stay focused, stay driven, and come back to Nursing.org all the time. We love you guys so much. We’ll see you in the next video. Bye!
