    That's very nice of you to want to do that for your friend! Well, nurses are very smart, they have to know practically as much as a doctor. They are hard-working, often working eleven or twelve-hour days. Maybe slightly longer. They are compassionate, as they tend to the needs of the sick. Head nurses, the ones in charge, or director of nyrsing (DONs) are very good at organization and leadership, as well as delegating responsibility. They are good mentors, as they train and supervise new nurses. They deal well with stress and emergencies. Hope this helps.
