Larson (1984) defines caring as the core, essence and distinguishing attribute of nursing. I believe that I possess the strength to care for others and behave in a caring manner. In the past I have shown my strength in this area of nursing care when looking after family members that have fallen victim to sickness. Whenever someone tells me that they are not feeling well, I immediately jump into action and try my best to make sure that they feel “cared for” .The feeling of pride and satisfaction I experience after caring for a person that is unwell is what originally made me choose nursing as a career. Caring is a basic attribute of human growth and development (Griffin 1983).
Even though working with the sick can be challenging at times , it is infinitely gratifying . I am also very aware of cultural differences that exist on society . Having worked with a diverse population , I have always selflessly ensured that all the people I work with are well served . I understand that working as a nurse is a noble cause that requires one to be responsible , humble , and respectful towards others
If you look out for the wellbeing of you patient and express what is best for your patient then you are actively practicing the value of altruism in the field of nursing. Next, the professional value of autonomy. Autonomy is the personal value of one over themselves, free form control of others (96). An autonomous person is one who acts intentionally, with understanding and without the influences of others opinions on them. As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off.
Although distracted at times, the girls still remembered each lesson when we reviewed on the final day. We were all sad, in a way, for this time together to end, but everyone had a wonderful time. My observations were very beneficial to me in my journey towards a career. I gained vital knowledge, positive advice, and relationships to last a
I spent weeks crying for hours over someone who should have never been worth a hello. Little by little I gained strength, put away my copies of Dear John and The Notebook, cleaned up the tissues and picked my life back up. Talking to my teachers I worked out ways to raise my grades and get my life back on track. I reached out to my friends and though they were happy for me, the only friend that came back into my life was Isabel. My first “heartbreak” was a learning experience for me.
I know everyone says this, but please cherish your last November at St. Tim’s. Soon, you will be walking through the moon gate and graduating. You have a long, yet short road ahead of you and I am truly looking forward to watching you succeed throughout your senior year. What’s really important about Brownie-Spider, is to make sure everyone is enjoying the tradition. You know how sensitive people can be, so you have to try your best to put yourself in their shoes.
An LPN must also be organized, supportive, dependable, good-natured, honest, and compassionate. Other types of skills would include: attention to detail, time management skills, good ethical standards, problem solving, high stress tolerance, and ability to be part of a team. An LPN has a lot of responsibility, just like a real nurse or doctor. Making sure that they have most of these skills and details is very important when working such a stressful job like they
I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE). Rena Hania, my current preceptor indicates that my strengths include “Maturity, professionalism and desire for autonomy. Asks appropriate questions, and have a gift for connecting with my patients” (R. Hania, personal communication,
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 diagnosis or
Patients may be of different sex, age, nationality, profession, social status, and health status. However, they all deserve respect, attention, and compassion. The nurse should cooperate with the patient to find the solution to the health problems. The combination of creative knowledge of the nurse together with the maintenance of the patient is the aesthetic knowing. The means of transformative acts support the issue of aesthetics in nursing.
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.
It is the compassion that is nurtured by nurses, PA’s, and physicians which transforms the clinical and overwhelming medical world into something more humanistic and comforting. Exhibiting integrity and respect towards patients is what allows them to feel secure in entrusting their lives to those nurses, PA’s, and physicians. This establishment of trust is integral to the medical system, and it can only happen when medical professionals make a daily, conscious commitment to treat every patient with compassion and integrity. For me, these characteristics are intertwined with my faith. Being true to my Seventh Day Adventist faith requires me to prioritize the very characteristics that are essential to the medical field.
In 2015, I started my eighth grade school year in student home caterina with mr and mrs wagner. I was on the crusaders team with mr. bush, mrs. number, mrs. squaresky, mr.shur, and miss. ainsworth. People who i believe contributed to my success today would be my seventh grade houseparents Mr and Mrs Troop.The Troops made me a successful person because they always told me not to give up and that they saw something grand in me. Even when i made bad decisions which was most of the time they still loved me and saw that one day i could be a star in everyone 's eyes.
Having experienced many difficulties with my pregnancies, childbirth and now as mother of two and enjoying motherhood from a patient’s perspective, I am aware of the valuable contribution that professionals in the health care industry make in alleviating not just the medical and physical problems that may occur, but also in offering guidance and comfort on a psychological level. I possess a caring and compassionate manner. I have a strong and commitment. I am good at listening. I have a love for mankind, as well as an intellectual aptitude for the related subject areas.
It was such a pleasant experience, they were so content to see that nursing students were there willing to learn about their problems and to learn how to treat them. That made me think how imperative I am going to be as a nurse to those people, and after experiencing this meeting, I will have additional knowledge and compassion for people with
