Listening is the most important skill and often the most challenging. In our experience, mental health nurses often worry about what they are going to say, what questions they should ask, or whether they have asked the right question. While such concerns are common and understandable for the newcomer to mental health nursing, these thoughts can distract the mental health nurse from listening to the person who is talking. 1
