Social Emotional Intelligence (SEI) with Elizabeth Dario Bockheim , owner and founder of Shine Awareness, LLC.

All nurses need empathy and affective skills to succeed in their service delivery. Affective skills are the individual interests, attitudes, and values that make one an outstanding service provider. Unfortunately, research shows that nursing students lose empathy in the first year of their nursing course, while seasoned nurses show a decrease within ten years of their nursing career.

Empathy helps nurses better understand how others are feeling and even feel it in themselves. It helps us maintain relationships and plays a role in dictating our success in both personal and professional relationships. Therefore, if we bring awareness to what we feel and how we feel it and choose words that build our patients, that can help us give better health care. 

Learn more about these skills with today’s guest. Elizabeth is a wife, mother, certified nurse educator, and an Influential Awareness Leader. Learn everything about self-awareness, its importance among nurses, and the best ways to embrace it.
