How do I refraze this sentence?
I need to know how to refraze this sentence: "One of the most important jobs a nurse has is their patient."
One of the most important jobs a nurse has is their patient.
You have a problem with number agreement between the pronoun 'their' and 'nurse'. The easiest way to fix this is to make 'nurses' plural. Another problem is that 'patients' aren't the jobs, but the caring for patients is.
One of the most important jobs nurses have is caring for their patients.
