About the course

“Etiquette is what you are doing and saying when people are looking and listening. What you are thinking is your business.” – Virginia Cary Hudson

When you think of the qualities you need for success in your nursing career, you probably think of clinical leadership and management skills. But, professional etiquette is a skill that cannot be ignored for career success. Etiquette is more than good manners; it's a tool for cultivating good relationships.

If you’re aiming for advancement and career success, you need more than clinical expertise, more than management savvy, more than leadership skills. You need to practice professional etiquette.

This course is aimed at improving the knowledge of nurses regarding professional etiquette. When etiquettes are followed all involved are able to feel more comfortable and things tend to flow more smoothly resulting in a more productive and successful career.
