Using Virginia Henderson’s idea about nursing and how they treat a patient, I believe that each person has basic needs that need to be assessed and met in order to recover. However, unlike Henderson’s theory my philosophy on nursing uses more than just the idea that a patient has basic needs. My philosophy continues and explains that a nurse should use the idea of holistic nursing care when caring for a patient and the nurse should connect a patient's care with the four metaparadigms: person, environment, health, and
The act of nursing helps people to achieve this goal comfortably and appropriately. Caring for a person through action, relationally, and improving health and is the ultimate role of a nurse. Conclusion Nursing plays an important role in maintaining the health of human beings. This role requires that a person be understanding of human beings individually and as a whole, the environment in which we survive, the meaning of health and how to maintain it, and how to be caring. These concepts have shaped my philosophy, which I will use as a guideline to practice nursing by, and as I advance my knowledge of nursing, I will be able to expand upon
Nurses intervention are there to coordinate the rhythm between human and environment and assisting the patient in the change process and toward a better health. 9. Dorothea Orem- Orem’s theory creates self care, known as the practice of activity, in which the patient performs his personal routine and needs independently to maintain health and lifestyle, according to age, developmental state, experiences in life, and cultural background. Orem identifies 5 requisites as known as; Activity of Daily Living; .The maintenance of sufficient intake of food and water. .Provisions of care associated with the elimination process .A balance between, activities and rest as well as between solitude and social interaction.
The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge. Considering doing so, it helps nurses to understand their purpose and role in nursing in the healthcare setting. Henderson believes that the unique function of the nurse is to help the person sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (to a peaceful death) that he would do unaided if he had the strength, will or knowledge. In doing so will help him gain independence as quickly as possible (Burggraf, 2012). The Scope or Level of theory The scope or level of theory used by Henderson was a grand theory.
Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015). As the assessment begins for Mrs. Adams there are many things that need to be addressed.
Virginia Henderson Theory used Today Virginia Henderson is one of many nursing theorists who changed the nursing profession. Henderson’s theory was considered a “needs” theory (Ahtisham& Jacoline, 2015). It was considered a needs theory because the primary focus was on the patient and the 14 fundamentals needs of the patient to aid in recovery. A nurse taking care of a patient with dementia will utilize Virginia Henderson’s theory in his or her practice by assessing the patient while making a connection with that patient, involving the patient and family to help maintain current health status, providing an environment that will provide safety and security, and using the 14 fundamental needs to guide the nursing process that is being
In nursing programs throughout the United States, there are various nursing philosophies with different emphasis on multiple beliefs. After exploring Immaculata University’s nursing philosophy, I concluded that it coincides with my own nursing philosophy with a focus on assisting individuals by promoting, restoring, maintain health, and to assisting them to die with dignity. Although the nursing philosophy is similar to mine, I believe that nursing philosophy consists of having compassion, professionalism, and providing safe care. Compassion is an important component of promoting the health of the individual. Lifelong experiences make a nurse have empathy for others and in turn enables nurses to be compassionate toward their patients.
They also have to advocate for patient's and support them through their difficult times and with they are improving their health. Professional nurses teach patient's how to manage their health. According to our textbook, The ANA states that “ practice of nursing is based on societies that knows their rights and responsibilities”. In which nurses derive their skill
In this study, it is clear that with the same academic conditioning still learning by experience and competency-based training or seminar are some measures of reinforcement. Also, it provides a proposition that competence in disaster preparedness among nurses may vary from institutional policies. Taking this at hand, it is important to determine and understand the disaster preparedness of nurses in the hospital setting. In effect, policy-makers, other stakeholders, hospital administrators and nurses themselves are guided to identify inefficiencies brought about by low levels of disaster preparedness. Hence, It will be an enabling environment to provide safety and health of both nurses and their patients.
A good nurse is someone who is compassionate, empathetic, and has a desire to truly want to care for the well being of others. A good nurse is also someone who is knowledgeable and also stays current in the medical field. As an advocate, nurses should empower patients by motivating and encouraging them to be active in their own care, also making sure the patients voice is being heard, and ensuring proper care is being performed in the best interest of the patient. A nurse is also an educator; nurses have the responsibility of educating their patients on their medical condition when the patient does not understand their prognoses. When a patient has a lack of knowledge of the care that is being provided, the nurse also has a responsibility to explain the care and why it will help the patient in the process.
Philosophy is a way one applies or practices their knowledge within a way of life or within their practice. Psychology takes skill, patience and understanding. Patient have experienced many different obstacles within their life so knowing how to perceive, accept, and apply a specific way of learning to each patient will help to build a patient/staff relationship. “Caring science seeks to unify and connect as an evolving philosophical-ethical-epistemic field of study that is grounded in the discipline of nursing and informed by related fields” (DiNapolo, 2010). Sociology is the study of functioning within human society.
