10 Reasons Nurses Make Great Partners

Nurses are known for their caring nature, extensive medical knowledge, and ability to solve complex issues quickly. They may not get as much credit as doctors, but they are often doing as much (if not more) to contribute to a patient’s well-being. Unsurprisingly, a nurse’s caring nature carries over to their home life as well as their relationships. Here are a few reasons why nurses not only make great professionals, but excellent partners as well.

1. They have a high level of endurance

Working long shifts while attending to numerous patients make nurses great at facing any personal problems they might encounter at home. It’s great to have a partner by your side who is not willing to give up easily and is in it for the long haul.

2. They have an extensive medical background

Being a nurse means dealing with many different medical situations, big and small. Having a partner with this wealth of knowledge is ideal, because they can help take care of you in all but the worst situations. There might even be a time when they save your life.

3. They understand the necessity of check-ups

A nurse understands how important it is to be vigilant about your health and to go to all of your annual check-ups. It might be easy letting your annual exams slip your mind, but having a partner that insists that you go on-time is a real blessing and will help you stay healthy for the rest of your life.

4. They are great listeners

Successful nurses need to be good listeners. Having a partner that takes the time to really comprehend what you are saying is essential to communication, which is a key building block to a healthy, happy relationship.

5. They are great teammates

Working long shifts with other nurses requires solid teamwork. There may be disagreements and personality clashes, but in the end all nurses understand that personal issues need to be put aside to make sure that their patients are properly cared for. This makes nurses great team players at home.

6. They have a good sense of humor

Nurses encounter many things at work they often wish they didn’t have to see. Humor is one of the many ways that nurses deal with these uncomfortable situations. This is important for any relationship, because the difficult moments you will face together as a couple will always go easier with little bit of humor.

7. They aren’t squeamish

Nurses deal with bodily fluids all the time, and can bear (almost) any squeamish situation. Having a partner that is fine with a little blood is a keeper, because they won’t freak out when life inevitably gets a little messy.

8. They know when to be concerned

Having dealt with their fair share of medical emergencies, nurses know when a situation is dire and when it is not. It’s important to have a partner who has this outlook in life, because drama is the last thing you need in your relationship.

9. They are financially sound

Nurses often make a average salary of $65, 470, a respectable amount of money that allows them to lead a comfortable and independent lifestyle. This is great for a relationship, because between both your salaries you will not have the burden of financial stress weighing you down.

10. They are able to operate on little sleep

Nurses often are used to working long hours, including working through the night across 12-hour shifts. This is especially useful if you decide to have children. Caring for a newborn means finding little sleep, and having someone who is able to function in this state is a valuable partner to keep around.
