Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Social, Investigative, Conventional (SIC) (GOT)
Individuals who possess an ESFJ Myers-Briggs® Test Type (MBTI®) tend to be warm, sympathetic, and helpful. They are also decisive, thorough, and consistent. A popular family of ESFJ careers that benefit from these characteristics includes registered nurses. These individuals are also known for being conscientious and loyal, working diligently in order to follow through on their undertakings. These aspects are a big part of the Extraverted-Sensing-Feeling-Judging (ESFJ) MBTI test personality type.
Individuals that enter registered nurse ESFJ career positions administer nursing care to injured, ill, disabled, or convalescent patients. They spend time assessing patient health problems and needs while maintaining strict medical records of their interactions. They also spend a fair amount of their time directing or supervising less-skilled nursing or healthcare personnel or supervising a particular unit. Registered nurses also take control of monitoring, recording, and reporting symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, as well as monitoring all aspects of patient care, including diet and physical activity. Similarly, they administer medications to patients and monitor patients for reactions or side effects. Registered nurses can also be found instructing individuals, families, or other groups on topics such as health education, disease prevention, or childbirth and developing health improvement programs.
Registered nurses utilize a variety of tools and technologies in order to complete their tasks including peripheral intravenous catheters, floor grade forceps or hemostats, flexible endoscopes or accessories or related products, and acute care fetal or monitoring units or accessories. They are also likely to utilize classification, spreadsheet and office suite software along with various medical software such as MEDITECH software, QuadraMed Affinity Healthcare Information System and Siemens SIENET Sky.
The areas of knowledge that are important for a career as a registered nurse include but are not limited to; psychology, education and training, biology, therapy and counseling, mathematics, sociology and anthropology, and, of course, medicine. An important aspect of this ESFJ career is to develop specific skills including the ability to listen actively, be socially perceptive, be service oriented, and have a strong sense for coordination with other team members.
In order to become a registered nurse, it is generally required to complete training in a vocational school and/or receive an appropriate associate’s degree, in addition to one to two years of on-the-job training.
