Interview Questions: Importance of Written Communications in Your Field. (Nursing)
Recent research proves that written communication skills are at the top of employers’ wish lists. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 73.4% of employers want a candidate with strong written communication skills. Written communication was the number three most desired quality overall, behind leadership skills and ability to work as a team member. (Moore, 2017, para. 2)
