As a student nurse, whose ultimate goal is to help people, and give the best care to patients. Educating the patient on their health issues, helping families get access to vital care and information in the community and hospitals is my role as a nurse. Creating an interconnection between myself and my patients will be my priority. I know it takes trust, and a healing environment for patients to come to trust nurses in their short or long stay in the hospitals and clinics. I will be a nurse who is willing to learn and ask questions when needed.
My personal nursing philosophy continues to grow as I learn and gain experience. Overall, having some great qualities and an understanding regarding nursing will allow nurses to flourish and take care of their patients with compassion and understanding. The nursing metaparadigm focuses on three aspects that nurses attend to to holistically take care of their patients. The three aspects include person, health, and environment.
Nursing is a career of service intended to aid people all over the world. A professional nurse will care and advocate for the patient while maintaining trust with the patient.

For this week’s discussion I chose to write scenario 12 Nurse- Nurse. I really believe that being in preceptor’s role makes all the difference in new nurses’ life and it can also be very rewarding. By precepting we can be role models in our nursing professional. “It seems natural and obvious that all nurses, given their education, would share similar values and beliefs about patient care” (Porter-O’Grady & Malloch, 2016, p211). Preparing students and new nurses to transition from being new to the field and help them to achieve competency and proficiency is still remain concern in our hospital or work area.
Becoming a Professional Nurse and Personal Attributes Needed To Establish An Effective Professional Relationship. The 2006 article “What Makes a Nurse” by Rush and Cook and Davis’ 2014 article “Emphatic Nurse” both describe important qualities for becoming an excellent nurse. This paper compares and contrasts key concepts proposed by the researchers such as communication, attitude, skills, knowledge and empathy. This paper will also consider life experiences and personal attributes to determine adequate qualities that nurses should have.
The profession of nursing is shaped by several belief and value systems that are held by different individuals, chief among them being respect. This virtue in nursing profession helps to defend and safeguard the dignity of every stage of human life. Another key value in nursing is that of responsiveness - caregivers are expected to relay information needed by clients, as well as responding to their queries. Thirdly, nursing system is expected to exhibit a sense of continuity and consistency in providing quality care to clients.

The articles does a good job explaining the concept of touch and how this affect us as a future nurses. I agree with the author about how touch is a important skill set to have in this nursing profession. When intimate touch is professional, and respectful, it can be a key to successful interaction and relationship with the patient and the nurse. The article also mention that some participants suggested that they want some type of relationship with nurses, they want their nurse to be there for them, and want to be able to make choices for themselves. A professional mutuality between the patient and nurse can foster comfort, trust, care, and respect.
In conclusion, Orlando 's theory mainly focuses on the nurse-patient interaction with the application of nursing process with successful goal attainment at the forefront. However, as essential as that is, the second reason for Orlando 's theory is to emphasize nurse 's purpose which extends from caregiver through care planner to care evaluator while preserving a therapeutic relationship with a client. Consequently, Potter and Bockenhauer (2000) summarize that " education and practice in Orlando 's Nursing Theory were found to help nurse achieve this outcome. In achieving this outcome, the nurses were better able to achieve their mission-excellence in each nurse-patient interaction" (p.21). Finally, I would like to wish everyone in this class the most abundant experience on the way to accomplishments in the chosen direction of advanced nursing profession and thank for the most diverse and stimulating discussions.
This degree will acclaim myself as a registered nurse, this type of nurses are responsible for caring and educating patients about their current conditions and at best to help them improve by carrying out duties such as to “perform physical exams, provide health promotion, administer medications” (nursingworld.org) and much more. I strongly envision that this career choice fits properly for me. The decision to be someone that cares for people, someone who needs to commit to learn, someone designed to have the hunger to work further only seems justifying for myself. The inspiration to be this someone came from my parents, teachers, friends and especially coaches. My parents who always remind me to be the finest caretaker I can be in this big family, my teachers, specifically one of them is Ms.Kelly,who influences me to always output my best self and reminds me that I can reach heights in life, my loving friend, Austyn Ah Choy, who never fails to note to me that I have the ability to show everyone that I can achieve greatness, and lastly my softball coaches who never give up on me and who help build my engagement towards hard work.
But, I do know what drew me to nursing in the first place. I have a strong desire to help people and possibly make a positive impact on their lives. I want to advocate for the patient and be a voice when it is needed and warrantied. My values and beliefs align with the metaparadigm concepts of nursing and how I plan on practicing after I graduate. Person
Current Policy and Procedure For my capstone clinical, I was at St. Vincent’s Postpartum Unit. Here, I learned many valuable skills while taking care of mom and baby. The policy that I used the most during my clinical would be the Infant Blood Glucose Monitoring Policy and
Why I Chose Nursing As a young girl, around the age of eight, I decided I wanted to become a singer, however, that was only a dream of mine. As I got older and more mature, I realized all fantasies do not come to life, so I began to venture toward a more reasonable career path. At first, I wanted to become an anesthesiologist, then a nurse anesthetist when I heard they spent less years in school. I would not necessarily say I lowered my standards or decided on a less prestigious program, but as of right now, I wish to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. This decision was solely based on my shadowing experience.
