I utilize these values to make decisions and live my everyday life. In nursing, my philosophy focuses on ensuring patient safety, maintaining confidentiality, and providing dignity and comfort for the patients as well as their family members. By being open-minded and expressing genuine concern we can establish rapport and trust in our therapeutic relationships with the patients and their loved ones. I believe that every patient deserves to be treated with respect, regardless of their emotional state or socio-economic background. Often, while working in the Emergency Room, I meet patients, who are angry and frustrated in the face of unknown, yet I maintain my calm approach and recognize that their emotions are determined by the level of pain, anguish, and suffering they are experiencing at the moment.
They should be good communicators, and actually listen to their patients, or families concerns, empathize, and provide clear concise information. An important value a healthcare worker should also embody is altruism. Nurses and medical professionals need prioritize their patients’ needs, without any regard for rewards or benefits. A persons’ health and welfare needs to be priority to a nurse, no matter what the situation. Josie’s Story highlighted the importance of altruism, and the need for nurses and doctors to take a step back and truly listen.
Jean Watson – Caring Science Theory Katrine S. Edwards Mercy College Abstract Dr. Jean Watson began her career as a Registered Nurse in 1961, however, she did not stop learning and advancing her mind there. Over several years she obtained multiple degrees; including a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and Counseling. Serious personal loss led Dr. Watson to fully realize her beliefs and to truly comprehend her own writings stimulating her to formulate her Caring Science Theory. Dr. Watson’s theory is comprised of 10 Caritas Processes that bring arts and humanities together with science to provide more loving and compassionate care to yourself and others. Dr. Watson’s theory speaks to me because I believe that everyone is entitled
Professional Presence and Influence Being able to promote a positive healing experience for patients is a significant responsibility for nurses. What heals one patient, may not work for another patient. Being equipped to identify what part is vital for each patient’s healing is not an easy task. Understanding different approaches to medicine, how different personality types function, how to be mindful rather than distracted, and what promotes an optimal healing environment are essential facets to provide exceptional care.
I have worked with medical students who come from the UA COM-P culture and I believe they bring a great amount of cultural awareness to their role on the healthcare team. The focus of early clinical exposure at UA COM-P makes a significant difference in learning how to care for people. The UA COM-P emphasis on cultural diversity allows for more learning opportunities and fully encompasses what it means to take care of the patient and not just treat a disease. I entered the medical field wanting to be at the bedside helping people. I think this gives me a unique view, and ability to help contribute to UA COM-P diversity centered training and culture.
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.
Health care workers are called upon to improve and maintain the health of our patients. A society where the civil rights of patients are dependent on the religious beliefs of others is not one I would want to live in. Basic rights and equality should never yield to discrimination, especially when people’s lives depend on the services of health care professionals. Even though the refusal to treat patients is legally protected by the RFRA, we should try to minimize discrimination, prevent our self-interests from providing exceptional care, and if not possible then there should be alternative ways to offer our patients the services they need. In the end, when we chose to pursue a profession in health care, we chose to benefit all of
Coming from a different culture but still embracing the Christian values that Loma Linda University emphasizes, I believe that my unique background and personal experiences distinguish my application from others. Growing up in Egypt, where the gap between social classes is significant, my parents always stressed the need to prioritize service into my life encouraging me to dedicate time in volunteering and helping others. As a result, my experience has grown from volunteering to serve as a camp leader for orphans in the summer to participating in international dental service trips. These involvements would allow me to use my skills in organizing missions trips at Loma Linda. Being a Coptic Orthodox Christian enables me to add diversity to the

My faith allows me the interact with my client on a different level. As a Christian, and firm believer in Christ, help me encourage my patient and give hope of a better future. My family is the second most essential values. When nurses can relate to their patient 's values, it forms a trust relationship. Just taking the talk about each other 's children can form a bond.
Being messenger of Good Faith is a characteristic that I found very appealing. This is the kind of nurse I hope to be. I want to be there for my patients with my faith during the hardest times. Also I want to help them understands that God is wonderful and he is always present among us.
The AVID program has had a positive impact in my academics, and in my life by helping me focus, enrich, and solidify my goals.

My time at Ashford University was well spent, it was strong and long however merited. I testify that my major of Liberal Arts was the best alternative for me.

In 2013 at Old Dominion University for four years of college, only 23.1 percent of students graduated, five years of college, only 45.2 percent of students graduated, and for six years of college, only 51.2 percent of students graduated. It is kind of upsetting that not many students graduate at the same time as everyone else. One of the reasons why is that certain students do not take their work seriously at all. But, if a student works late, it would be hard for them to get their schoolwork done by the day it is due. As a Thomas Nelson Community College student, I need to get my degree as soon as everyone else does, even though college is difficult.
