Clearly, Elizabeth Stanton had to be confident to speak to crowds and to publish books with very bold ideas that supported women. During the 1870s, she traveled around the United States speaking to large crowds. The lecture she often delivered was her “Our Girls” speech, which was about the importance of education for young girls and promoted equality for women. Confidence was also displayed by her when she spoke in front of three hundred people and read the Declaration of Sentiments at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848.

A personal philosophy of nursing allows nurses to guide and shape their practice. As Molzahn & Shields states, "we are in the privileged position of working closely with human beings and helping them deal with many aspects of the human condition" (2008, p.25). By working daily with patients who all have distinct and unique healthcare experiences, I believe that it is crucial to have a set of values and ethics that guide how we care for our patients. By holding Christian beliefs and values, I believe that it is important to care for other people the way Jesus cares for us, and to take time to notice the little glimpses of Christ shown in other people. When thinking about how I can have an impact on my patients, I keep in mind that "for most people, most of the time, God comes to us in the valleys and plains of life" (Doornbos, Groenhout, & Hotz, 2005, p.21).
