All healthcare professionals should serve patients and the community by providing the best care possible in their scope of practice (Shohani & Zamanzadeh, 2017, pp. 355-357). Nurses have to be aware of how to act in and outside the workplace. This includes sharing opinions and information on social media, speaking badly about coworkers or a workplace, accepting gifts or socializing with patients and their families. Patient information
When soldiers are processed into the military they must begin to learn and live the Army values. Those values are loyalty, duty, honor, respect, selfless service, integrity, and personal courage ("Army Values," n.d.). These are drilled in to the hearts and minds of every soldier even though at times some of these soldiers end up in ethical dilemmas. The reflective observation of the different examples of ethical problems can occur as a young soldier, a leader, or simply because of environmental influence. As a young soldier, many are nervous and scared of management and not meeting expectations.
It is essential to me to be a patient advocate, provider, teacher, manager, and leader because I think that we as nurses should deliver the highest quality nursing care in order to accomplish excellence in patient 's outcomes. To me nursing is about compassion and trying to understand human beings on all emotional, physical, and scientific levels. As a professional nurse, I feel a personal commitment toward life-long learning, through formal education and hands-on experience to better myself and my nursing knowledge. Of all the things that make up nursing, nobody can truly understand or know what it means to be a nurse until they have actually lived it. The first thing that comes to mind when someone asks me why I want to be a nurse is because I just love to take care of people.
Every nursing, in order to consider the profession must have an understanding of at least three of the five professional values, in my opinion. These values consist of altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity and social justice (Taylor 96). Beginning with the professional value of Altruism, the believe in or practice and self concern for the well-being of others (96). I believe that in order to be the best nurse you can be for your patients, you must understand the concept of altruism. As a nurse, your profession is to take care of people, if you do not know the professional value of altruism than you cannot possibly understand how important it is to care about the wellbeing of your patient.
Look at that list and see how many of those they are doing, adopt the good and and let go of the bad. The mindset that virtue ethics encourages is one of appreciation and growth. It teaches people to appreciate the lessons they can learn from those around them and the goodness in the hearts of those around them. Most importantly, it teaches people to appreciate themselves and the constant effort that they put into always working towards growing to be a better
Having morals are the freewill of having the choice to do the right or wrong actions. Ethics, values and morals come with principals. My principals that I live by and I feel will help me succeed in life are positivity, preparation, determination, faith and the focus on growth. Being a positive person and doing positive things will tell a lot about what kind of person you are. Surrounding yourself with positive energy as well, such as the people you associate yourself with and their intentions for themselves.
No wonder Nurse was voted to be a more honest profession. The willingness to help others with compassionate, nonjudgmental, truthfulness, and faithful took a degree of trust between the nurse-patient relationship. Showing positive attitude, no matter what’s the patient perception outcome would be –nurse highly respect wishes and beliefs. Being professional, one must exhibit an independent performance, which patient can rely on truthful information when advocate. Ethical principle characteristics from the inside are golden values, but it is also carried out the same values for outside appearance.
You must be able to fully understand your own values and beliefs to be able to understand others. This is so important as a nurse because you will deal with a lot of clients who either disagree with your decisions or you will disagree with the choices they make regarding their care. Another important concept in my opinion is Human Relationships: Interpersonal skills and group dynamics. A big part of this subject is communication, communication in my opinion is one of the most important forms of client care because it includes so many different forms including client communication, communication with family, communication with co-workers and when you are doing public health teaching. Through the many forms you can understand more thoroughly the patient’s needs.
As a nurse, it is our duty to talk with the patient and their family to set goals and achieve said goals in a way that is possible for the patient. I intend on taking aspects from both theorists into my personal theory of what nursing should
Through being a student nurse, I was taught and molded to become a safe and practical licensed nurse. I endured a whole year of reading and book work, sleepless nights and a whole lot of sacrificing to become a future nurse. Through all my days in a clinical setting and shadowing different care team members, one of the most valuable lessons I have picked up on is the good and bad habits health care members attained over the years when it came to professionalism in the workplace. I have realized that for me to be a successful and professional nurse in the field, it is crucial to be respectful, advocate for patients, show integrity, look the part and have good personal hygiene. When I talk about respect, it is not only in regard to respecting the ones that have a higher rank.
