Assertiveness, as an important element of interpersonal competency, is essential in effective conflict resolution. The nursing profession is associated with intense contacts in the therapeutic team, so this profession recognizes the need to use an assertive attitude, which allows defending one's dignity, expressing opinions and emotions for another person.
