Health is viewed as a part of the whole, is variable and teeters between synchronization and disagreement. Nurses depend on theories and models to promote healing, well-being, and mindfulness when providing care for individuals and interacting with
My childhood initiated a desire to help prevent and mitigate injury or illness; this soon flourished into an interest in the health care field. To help narrow my choices I explored as many science courses as I could. Talking with health care professionals and reading nursing textbooks I found in my aunt’s house piqued my interest in the nursing field and patient care. From there, I completed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course which further solidified my decision. Now, I am fully invested in becoming a nurse.
Upon entering the program, I perceived nursing as an easy and secure profession, given the high demand for nurses. I believed that a nurse's sole responsibility was to provide care and comfort to patients. However, as I proceeded with the program, I realized that it required a broad variety of expertise, such as knowledge, skills, and abilities. My values in nursing emphasize the need to have the ability to understand and manage complicated medical situations, interact with interdisciplinary teams, and navigate the healthcare system while also giving patients compassionate care. Hence, the ability to learn and master these essential skills is crucial for ensuring positive patient outcomes, delivering high-quality care, improving efficiency,
a. This portfolio shows the educational journey through the BSN program at Western Governors University(WGU). The curriculum at WGU was very challenging, nonetheless it prepared me to become a safe and effective nurse. The BSN curriculum provided avenues to keep me up to date with safe practices and learn how to master therapeutic communication. WGU also helped me sharpen my critical thinking skills in order to make decisions quickly and provide safe and effective care to patients. As the result of my training, I am ready to embark in the field of nursing and do my best to make a difference in my patients lives.
My father had an open heart surgery at the Aventura Hospital & Medical Center on June 2011. During his long hospitalization, I was amazed to witness the professionalism and the compassion of the nurses on the 7th floor despite my father tough character and attitude. For that, I am totally grateful and also especially interested to work with those wonderful nurses. My felling for the hospital never faded but grows more and more over the time with my father’s frequent visits to the hospital Emergency Department or my two clinical rotations on the 7th and 9Th floor while I was a nursing student.

Caring for The Individual: An Examination of Personal Nursing Philosophy Arianna Mailloux 400164224 NURSING 2AA3 Ashley Collins Harris February 19, 2018 As a novice nurse, developing and understanding of ones’ own personal feelings about nursing is important to help shape your clinical practice. Within this paper I will examine my personal assumptions, beliefs and values of the four nursing paradigms to develop a personal philosophy of nursing. This philosophy will be aligned with a known nursing theory and the comparisons will be discussed. Section I: Personal Philosophy of Nursing Person
My Personal Philosophy and Values of Nursing Nursing is proving care, support, and serve people who are in need. The purpose of nursing is to improve patient 's health condition to a better life. The goal of this paper is to explain my personal philosophy and clarify some of my values of nursing. Personal Philosophy
Person referred to the recipient of nursing care. For example, the patient, client, human being, the individual, and in some theoretical works include family, group, community, or institution. Environment referred to the place within the person exists. For example, external environment (temperature, bedding), and internal environment (food, water, medications). Environment is also view as a situation, energy field, conditions, circumstances, or influences surrounding the person.
NUR 8620 Nurse Theorist Whiteboard In Class Activity 1. Biographical information of the theorist; The theory of Human Caring was developed between 1975-1979 by Jean Watson while she was engaged in teaching at the University of Colorado. The focus of the theory is on the relation between use of the clinical caritas processes and the building of a transpersonal caring relationship within the context of caring occasion and caring consciousness. Theory of Human Caring honors the unity of the whole human being, while also attending to creating a healing environment (Watson, 2006).
In 2003 the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) defined nursing as “The use of clinical judgement in the provision of care to enable people to improve, maintain, or recover health, to cope with health problems, and to achieve the best possible quality of life, whatever their disease or disability, until death.” Nurses strive to accomplish the best possible quality of life for their patients, regardless of disease or disability. Crosta (2014) elaborates on this by writing that nurses use clinical judgment to optimise, protect and promote health, ease suffering and become advocates in health care for their patients and their families encouraging person-centred care. Price (2006) defines person-centred care as care which centres on the patient’s own experience of their needs, health and illness. Patient-centred care is linked within literature to the concept of Holism.
It is very easy to get wrapped up in the day to day tasks that we complete as nurses. But in order to give our patients the best possible care, we must look at our day through a holistic lens. The following essay will outline the theory as created by the “lady with the lamp” Florence Nightingale. We will look at the different components that are important to a patient’s health and outline on to incorporate these components into current practice.
Providing care to a patient is a particularly challenging process that requires a great deal of effort from a nurse. A nurse’s ability to give quality care to their patient is an important aspect to a patient’s life both now and in the future. As such, nurses must exhibit specific qualities in their practice in order to maintain the best standard of care for their patients. Given this, I believe that the standards of knowledge, advocacy, and self-awareness are foundational to the nursing practice and to a nurse’s capacity to provide quality patient care. Knowledge
Nurses are the liaison between the doctors and the patients. We should acknowledge an honor the patients as a person regardless of his status in life, and not ignore them, paying attention to every details pertaining to their health. • Lifelong learning – I strongly believe that the education doesn’t end after graduation but continues even when you are in the nursing profession and working. Part of being a nurse is the application of knowledge and skills and the continuation of learning. My goal is to make it a point to stay current and updated on education by taking courses, attending seminars, trainings, obtaining certifications, as well as joining meaningful nursing organizations.
These viewpoints have importance for medicine as well as for nursing or other health professions. The complete practice of human caring theory is most fully realized in a nursing theory because nursing allows for the constant caring factor that medicine does not have;
