The systems theory is an interactive system that helps further the nurse-patient relationship. This approach is based on three systems. Included in the three systems is individual, interpersonal and social (“Goal
In Mcleod’s article, it said that people “‘think about, evaluate, or perceive’ themselves” (Mcleod 1). Mcleod talks, in the article, about how people thinking, evaluating, and perceiving about themselves is call self-concept. Whenever people think about themselves, most of the time, people are confused about whether or not they are pursuing right actions for their future, especially people with low self-esteem . Furthermore, people get more confused if their actions dramatically differ from others. However, again, people’s actions determine who they are, so even if their actions are dramatically different from others, it may be a path for that person’s success. Following others do not mean people will be as successful as them.
Everyone’s values and beliefs about the profession of nursing are all different. The four concepts of nursing are interrelated and all mean something different to every person, too. Throughout this paper, I will be reflecting on my values and beliefs about nursing through the four concepts while comparing them to a nursing theorist with views that are most similar to my own.
For example, if someone emplaces the idea that one is overweight in one’s head, one is going to possibly take that into account when looking in the mirror. Self-concept is also said to contribute to how we may behave in the future by setting up goals that reflect our opinions of ourselves. In some instances, individuals may believe that they will be a successful doctor and, because of that self-concept, it becomes reality. This is known as self-fulfilling prophecies. Self-esteem is the worth of what one takes from one’s self-awareness and self-concept. This is where the question of “Do I like who I am?” comes into play. Self-esteem, more so than the other major components of self, weighs heavily on how one interacts with others. For instance, if an individual is insecure about their uneven teeth because they are viewed as an imperfection, one may be less likely to willingly interact with others in fear of judgment. This lessens the amount of friendships made and overall lessens one’s confidence. On the other hand, if one is secure of who they are, it is evident in the way one communicates and their good feelings associated with life in
A primary concept of nearly all nursing theories is the belief that humans are the center of nursing care. No matter what setting nurses are practicing in, the goal is to optimize patient outcomes by holistically caring for patients, families, and their environments. Imogene King took this idea, divided in into three systems: personal system, interpersonal system, and social system, and related the systems to goal attainment and specific concepts.
Nursing is proving care, support, and serve people who are in need. The purpose of nursing is to improve patient 's health condition to a better life. The goal of this paper is to explain my personal philosophy and clarify some of my values of nursing.
Parkinson’s disease is a “disorder of the nervous system that affects movement” (Staff, 2015), but does not have an acute onset. Usually symptoms start with a slight tremor in the hands and then slowly progresses to other parts of the body (Staff, 2015). Even though most people have fast, shaking, movements, Parkinson’s can also cause stiffness or slow movements. According to Mayo Clinic Staff, early signs of Parkinson’s disease may include diminished facial expressions, absence of swaying arms when walking, and “speech may become soft or slurred” (2015). Unfortunately, Parkinson’s does not have a cure, but there are medications out there to help symptoms as well as brain surgeries.
Imogene King’s goal attainment theory focuses on the importance of the relationship between the nurse and patient along with the impacts it can have on attaining goals. There are many concepts within each system that King believes influence the outcome of the goals. The process of the nurse and patient relationship begins with the nurse. Then the patient along with the nurse both having their own experiences or thoughts on a situation, which can be completely different. This leads to a process of actions and reaction resulting in an interaction. An interaction is the goal directed portion of relationship built upon perception and communication. This leads to a transition, which is when mutually valued, as goals are achieved. Building a nurse-patient relationship with good communication is the key to mutually work towards an attainable goal to improve the patient 's’ health and quality of life. According to King “If nurses with special knowledge and skills communicate appropriate information to clients, mutual goal setting and goal attainment with occur” (as cited in McEwen & Wills, 2014, p. 176). Professional nursing symbolizes as a sensible caring, well rounded unique art, to patient
The patient is willing to have good health, and so the nurse and the patient will cooperate towards a common goal of restoration of the patient’s health.
OUR world, our species, and all the species on the planet are in jeopardy. We are killing off the planet for our con-venience while adamantly denying it. The unsustainable lifestyle most of us lead is depleting natural resources and destroying living environments. Environmental crisis, wars, social injustice, and social dysfunction; these are inevitable as we become more and more disconnected from one another and the natural universe. We are mur-dering ourselves and all other life on this planet.
First, self-concept maintenance is related to individualism collectivism. (Triandis, 1989) has been related to widely varying psychological process, such as motivations for uniqueness. Next, self-identity theory was design to illuminate the nature and origins of self-knowledge, especially the reactions of others and the roles people play. This theory assumes by observing how we fit into social relationship and how others react to us (Mead
The first concept is the person which is an individual composed physicality, which is the total function of the body, psychological, such as mental process and social nature, such as a relation with the patient or nurse (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). The second concept is Environment. Its components are enthronement factors, enthronement elements, conditions, and developed environment (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). The third concept is Health, which describes what health and healthy are .They are expressions used to define what’s alive. This concept embraces what defines a person human. The final concept is nursing. To define it, it’s a serving service, and a technology (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Engagements intentionally designated and executed by the nurses to support individuals below their precaution to sustain or altered disorders (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). This also includes the patient’s viewpoint of health state, the Doctor’s standpoint, and the nursing perspective (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Nursing’s goal is to concentrate on the patient and how to sustain his or her well-being, life and health (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Also another goal is to help regain a therapeutic health state and in the occurrence of an illness or injury to help control,
The self can be defined as ‘an organised, consistent set of perceptions of and beliefs about oneself’ (Passer, Smith, Holt, Bremner, Sutherland & Vliek, 2009, p676). We should aim to understand ourselves, learn know how we function
My self concept has developed because of my thoughts, my surroundings, my relationships, and my past experiences. I’m hoping to find out what happened to make me this way and how I keep constantly changing. Even though everything seems in place.
Who am I? I am Quentina Burnett and I have been developed by socialization, to be able to fit within the society. Socialization is the process where an individual learns behavior, values, culture, and norms of the society to develop his or her personality to become a proficient person in the society (Keirns et al., 2016). This process starts in the early stage of a baby, to an adult, and continues until the individual dies. The process of socialization gives people and myself the basic social contact and social interaction needed to develop “self”. Self is the ability to know right from wrong, understanding the society norms, behaviors, culture, and values. An example of this is learning and talking the native language, know how to eat from a spoon, and able to communicate with other people. If people or myself fail to experience socialization, they will not possess the acquired skills needed to develop self. This process is required for me to be apart and successful fit in the society.
