Enthusiasm to help is a part of a nurse 's professional attitude that is most respected. Nurses, who are willing to help other coworkers, and patients, are seen as someone who can be trusted. In order to have a good teamwork in the clinical setting, each nurse must get rid of the selfishness less attitude. For example, on the clinical setting, if the nurse does his task on downtime and sees other nurse needs help, he or she has to step up and help the nurse who needs help. This is the kind of approach that shows a nurse is a team
They were just meant to assist the physician during treatment, assist in the patients personal hygiene administer medication that is prescribed by the physician and dress wounds. These were just things that any woman could do. Nursing demands much more now as they are educators, client advocate, and managers. More so it is a requisite for any field of endeavour to attain professional status, it is actually an attribute of a profession. Professional Autonomy in Nursing refers to the ability of the nurse to act based on her knowledge and judgement.
It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
While Helen defined professionalism, she described as “personal appearance, having knowledge or seeking out knowledge and speak from a point of knowledge”. A resource nurse believes that professionalism carries the image of an efficient nurse and thus, representing the mission of an organization. Furthermore, professionalism prevents from having any conflicts with other staff and can carry effective communication to other patient and families. Being a resource nurse, professionalism sets examples for other direct care staff to comply
Empirical categories of personal characteristics and behaviours provide a deep understanding of a human being as a person; as a self. In addition, Carper highlights the importance of the "therapeutic use of self" which only becomes possible through the personal knowing. In the therapeutic use of self, the nurses bring as much of themselves as possible to the relationship with the patients and use themselves for their benefit. In this relationship the nurses and the clients interrelate openly toward "fulfilment of human potential". (Carper,
My philosophy of nursing is a statement I will stand by as a nursing student and as a graduate nurse and will continue to incorporate it into my daily care. In my eyes, nursing is the ability to provide safe, holistic care to all people regardless of their age, race, gender, social status, or sexuality. Nursing is a profession in which it is essential to be caring and respectful of all patients in which they may be experiencing the most difficult health situations of their lives and to provide culturally safe care. My values of nursing shape my practice as a nurse and are affected by my views on health. In my eyes, health is not solely related to medical illness and disease.
Such as instilling hope, development of helping-trusting nurse-client relationships, promoting expression of feelings and promotion of teaching/learning. The carative factors also support holistic healing of the whole person by creating a supportive environment for physical, mental, sociocultural, and spiritual healing, and allowing for exploration of existential-phenomenological thoughts.

Virginia Henderson’s theory closely resembles the personal theory I use as my guide when providing patient care. Henderson stated that it is necessary for the nurse to “get inside the skin of each of her patients in order to know what he needs” (Masters, 2017, p. 53). Knowing your patients inside and out is an invaluable tool. When you can truly see your patient, it allows you to provide the best patient care for that person. Patient care is individualized because every person has different
Patient confidentiality is a core concept in nursing practice and allows for a trusting relationship between the patient and the nurse. As nurses, information regarding a patient must be kept and safeguarded. This is governed by the An Bord Altranais Code of Professional Conduct for each Nurse and Midwife. (2000) It is essential to uphold the trust of the patient and to make them feel comfortable and at ease in the care of nurses. Providing there is a trusting relationship between the nurse and the patient, this in turn allows for the patient to disclose private or personal information to the nurse necessary for formulating a satisfactory care and treatment plan to enable the recovery of the
I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE). Rena Hania, my current preceptor indicates that my strengths include “Maturity, professionalism and desire for autonomy. Asks appropriate questions, and have a gift for connecting with my patients” (R. Hania, personal communication,
