Patient expectations are preconceived ideas of how they feel they should be treated when in the healthcare setting. When nurses have clear, purposeful intentions that meet those expectations this result in high patient satisfaction.

Philosophy of Care and Professional Organizations Personal Statement Grand Canyon University: NUR 440 Heather Reed February 5, 2016 Philosophy of Care and Professional Organizations Personal Statement Personal Statement I chose nursing as my occupation because I believe that it is my calling to help others and to care for those in need.

The ANA code of ethics directs nurses to ensure that they practice with compassion and respect for dignity, uniqueness and worth of every patient. Nurses should thus provide care to all patients with the same degree of professionalism and compassion which does not allow for bias. Lastly, nurses should ensure that patients are presented with freedom from suffering. Nurses need to ensure that they are able to help or manage suffering from their patients. The suffering could be emotional, psychological or physical.
One of the key responsibilities for nurses is to help the patients in understanding the medical intervention planned for them and the things they can do to assist in their case, including list of things they should and shouldn’t do during the treatment till recovery.
