    It depends what you mean by 'doesn't talk much'. You may not be extrovert ie. you don't enjoy lots of chat/small talk, you tend not to offer opinions or feel confident talking in a group. I am sure you understand that nursing is a service offered to people, where you need to be able to communicate around their needs, and also communicate with colleagues. This involves good listening skills, not just talking.It also involves explaining things to others, sometimes encouraging them to speak if they are unwell or anxious, asking questions to find out how they are feeling.Often when people are unwell, they appreciate being with someone who is calm, patient and not loud, empathetic and also strong when something difficult such as a treatment has to be faced.I think you should find out more about nursing and everything this job involves, rather than worrying only about being introverted.

    As a senior nursing student who has done plenty of internships and rotations, the answer is no. There is a whole chapter in multiple nursing textbooks on communication. You’re constantly talking to doctors, advocating for patients, etc

    No.

    Nurses need to be able to talk to their patients, explain what's being done, explain what the patient needs to do.

    That shouldn't be a factor in nursing, as long as you don't mind hard physical work.

    Nursing would not.  Watchmaking would.

    No, a nurse has to be assertive, they get people wanting to do their own thing when they can't and also have to manage the running and control of the ward.

    Communication is important in most things.
