The first one talks about the nursing. Nursing is precisely the way Nightingales puts it, relieving pain and suffering which restore patient 's health by managing the environment. In my nursing practice, the patient always comes first. The patient care comes first in every decision. If for example, a new room assignment may jeopardize patient safety, the change won 't go on.
What does nursing mean to me? Nursing means helping people heal, meeting their needs while they are in your care, listening to concerns, protecting them from harm, and educating them how to care for themselves while treating them with dignity, compassion and respect. Nursing is giving of yourself to the care of people and community, while expecting nothing in return. It is having compassion for people and their health, being a humanitarian, and making sure patients receive the best care possible. Nurses must also deal with families of patients with gentleness and kindness, realizing they are going through a stressful situation also.
We are working with cancer patients and it is of great importance to educate our clients so as to minimize the effects of disease, potential complications, unwanted effects of the treatment employed and safe health management at home. Our patients can face life threatening complication if poorly taught about their condition and expected outcomes. Therefore, it is mandatory for every nurse as well as other members of health care team to provide health education to all of our patients. Moreover, it is the part of nurses’ competencies that they are able to provide health education to the patients and the families. We have established the teams of nurses for different specialties like breast care nurses, stoma care nurses, perioperative specialist
My Reflection One of the reasons of being a nurse is showing caring. Milton Mayeroff says caring is ‘helping the other grow’. Caring consists of knowing, trust, hope, patience, courage, honesty and humility. The nurses should show these elements to be caring. For example, the nurses should be patient and carefully to take care disabled clients.
However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
As a nurse, maintaining a sense of professionalism is of utmost importance in order to gain respect from our peers, leaders, and most importantly or clients. As I have gone out into the field during our clinical rotations, I have experienced many professional nurses and a few nurses I would consider unprofessional. So, I have decided to touch on a few key characteristics that I think make the mold of a professional nurse. As I searched for information regarding the professional nurse, I repeatedly saw these words throughout all the literature; autonomy, accountability, advocate, caregiver, and communicator. All of those aspects are pivotal in order to maintain a healthy, therapeutic relationship with our clients and to provide the greatest, holistic care possible while maintaining a sense of respect.
Before, I do anything daily I must set out a planning outline. This has been something that has affected my life positively. It helps you set your priorities right, make good choices and be active in decision making as a nurse especially during the development and implementation of a care plan between myself and the patients. Thus, effective planning and decision making are linked, for without decision and action the planning process is a sterile one. Social
Collaborating with colleague’s through a health care team requires skills, that each occupation in the health care field must have. To ensure that the health care team is working efficiently, the members must communicate to each other, and work together to provide the best for their patients. Each member in the group, works together to achieve the same common goal, by following the group norms “unwritten behavioural rules” (Arnold & Boggs, 2016, p.138). This quality is important in the discipline of nursing due to the fact that this profession is based on providing the best, most efficient care toward the patient, that provides them with the best health
By having time to talk to patients, and discover parts of their story and how they view their health would allow me to truly satisfy my personal philosophy of nursing. I will choose to see glimpses of the Lord 's glory in the littlest moments of the day, whether that includes helping a patient transfer, talking to a patient 's family member, or documenting. I will choose to show my patients the love that I have so graciously experienced from our Saviour Jesus, as they are true image bearers of God. I will choose to show compassion, empathy, and love towards my patients, and see them for the whole person that they are, and not solely their
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. Question 2: Have you ever had a concrete situation
