Many influences even though the historical or contemporary that is important to shape the profession of nursing. The Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 [HPCA] and Nursing Council of New Zealand Code of Conduct for Nurses 2012 [COC] underpin the nursing practice, in order to promote the nursing profession. Professional boundaries play an important role in nursing. This essay will identify and discuss how the historical influence which is Florence Nightingale and the contemporary influence that is education has shaped the profession of nursing, the purpose and impact of the HPCA and COC on nursing, how they are implemented in the workplace and also define and explain the importance of the professional boundaries in nursing. One
From these realizations I have concluded that the professional nursing theories which most align with my own philosophy is a combination of Jean Watson’s theory of human caring and Rosemarie Parse’s theory of human becoming. Watson’s theory of human caring outlines the science behind caring as a driving force and framework for practice in nursing. It explores the concept that “humanities address themselves to deeper values of the quality of living and dying, which involve philosophical, ethical, psychosocial and moral issues” (Watson, 2005, p. 2). Within her original text, Watson outlined 10 “carative factors” which help integrate the science of healthcare field with the more holistic nuances of nursing and the phenomena that is the human
(World Health Organization (1983). Holistic nurses val-ue themselves and mobilize the necessary resources to care for themselves. They en-deavour to integrate self-awareness, self-care and self-healing by engaging in practices such as self-assessment, meditation, yoga, good nutrition, movement, art, support and lifelong learning. They strive to achieve balance and harmony in their own life and help others do the same. (AHNA scope and Standards of Practice, Core Value 5,
Watson (2012, as cited in Pjnkihar, 2017) refers to nursing as a science, art, and moral ideal which essence is caring. In the ten caritas processes, Watson emphasized the promotion of a “supportive, protective, and/or corrective mental, physical, societal, and spiritual environment” (Watson 1999, as cited in Pjnkihar et al, 2017). She also highlighted the influence of internal and external environments on

Effective communication is one of the most fundamental tools of the nursing practice. Communication involves two parties the conveyor and the recipient, in which information is exchanged through personal and interpersonal mediums (verbal and non-verbal forms), allowing the message conveyed to be received and understood. Ultimately effective communication in healthcare reduces barriers constructed by language and cultural differences etc, creating a safe environment for the client in which they can actively participate in positive health-related behaviours. This explanatory synthesis will explore the concept of self- awareness in relation to therapeutic communication and how it significantly influences nurse-client rapports. It will also
In the article Caring Science and Human Caring Theory: Transforming Personal and Professional Practices of Nursing and Health Care written by Jean Watson, (2009) the author viewed care theory as, “one prominent theoretical, ethical, and philosophical framework in which nurses and administrators are engaged to inspire and transform nursing and health care…” The theory of human care developed by Jean Watson between 1975-1979. Watson theory is based on seven assumptions. These assumptions are; caring can be effectively demonstrated and practiced only interpersonally. Caring consist of carative factors that result in the satisfaction of certain human needs. Effective caring promotes health and individual or family growth.
It is this emphasis on patient and their needs that allows for tailored judgment and interventions. Moreover, nurses should respect patients’ responsibility, ability and participation for their own health. Nurses surrender their desire to control, and focus on co-operation and collaboration in making judgment (Gibson, 1991). Patient empowerment urged nurses to think out of a patriarchal framework. Indeed, it is the nurses clinical expertise, collaborative skills and their knowledge of the health care system that serves as a source of power that allow nurses to make their care delivery more patient centered (Ponte et.
Christian nurses are given the unique ability to provide compassionate and spiritual care to a variety of patients. The purpose of this paper is to explain my definition of nursing as a caring art, describe how Christian faith impacts caring, describe my personal philosophy of nursing while identifying my own personal values and beliefs, and discus how my beliefs impact my nursing practice. To me, nursing as an art of caring, is defined as caring for the whole person, building meaningful relationships, and providing compassionate care. Holistic nursing care involves healing a person physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe the art of nursing is embedded in the steps we take to address problems that are not simply physical.
Therefore, my PowerPoint presentation demonstrates how the human caring concepts of providing basic personal needs, creating a healing, caring environment, solving problems mutually, respecting all people and appreciating individuality can be applied to all forms of therapeutic nursing interventions in areas of practice, education, and administration. Develops therapeutic nursing interventions which may impact healthcare outcomes for individuals, families, populations, and/or systems (i.e. rural and underserved areas). My PowerPoint demonstrates how the concepts from The Quality Caring Model © can facilitate the provision of quality patient care by using therapeutic nursing interventions. Most notably, the research and the creation of my PowerPoint demonstrates how this model investigates exactly how therapeutic nursing interventions can be measured for their effects on patient outcomes using experimental designs, which has yielded favorable outcomes.
A Case Study: Healing and Autonomy Introduction Healing is the process of restoration of normal biological body functioning from a previously experienced illness. Autonomy is the respect of the patient decision on his/her fate. It is a basic right of the patient and the physician ruling ought to abide by it. This makes it mandatory for the health care provider responsibility to respect this patients ' right. For the process of healing to be amiably achieved there should be a cooperation of the patient and the nurse this elevates the confidentiality of the patient and make it easier of the functionality of the nurse.
