How does a nurse not get attached to their patient?

How do you avoid emotional transference? Are nurses supposed to not ‘care’ about their care? How much is too much?

And is there a drawback to allowing emotional transference?

Will you miss or make a mistake if you get too attached to your patient?

I offer my thoughts.


**IMPORTANT NOTICE** This was a recording from my ‘old’ Snapchat account, so it’s not the highest quality (wonky formatting). Some of the video content and conversation is out of context, but I thought the information was valuable and wanted to share it here. I hope you don’t mind. Oh, there might be some colorful language.
