Discussion Assignment: Nursing is about being able to connect with your patients and families. At times this may require the nurse to practice “emotional intelligence”. What does it truly mean to practice “emotional intelligence”? How should we practice “emotional intelligence” and why is it important? These are questions I have have been asked throughout my educational journey in nursing.
For this discussion post, please list ALL the characteristics of emotional intelligence. I would like 2 sentences on each characteristic that describes the meaning. Then I want you to explain which characteristic you want to improve upon as you start your nursing career. and should be 250 words with references.
