Being disabled since the age of nineteen, Crohn's disease has taken over her life; breaking her down bit by bit, tearing apart her insides, failing her organs. Making it near impossible to even think about being in public, since the restroom is her safe haven and without it, humiliation is sure to happen.
Servant leadership is an important skill that all nurses should make a part of their daily lives. I still have a lot to learn about nursing, but I have already seen servant leadership in action during clinical. My experiences have both been at the main hospital.

In this assignment I will explore a clinical experience where dignity was maintained and reflect on my practice. It is important to reflect in both personal and professional development. Reflection will allow me to recognise both good and bad practice and how I can improve as a person as well as professionally. For this assignment I will be writing in first person, as it is appropriate for a reflective essay. Hamil (1999) can be used to support this, in the essay. I will also use Gibbs (1988) reflective framework to structure this assignment, as it can help with understanding what went well, what did not do so well and how to improve. Whilst reflecting on the clinical experience where dignity was maintained, I will analyse the situation and use literature to validate my findings. Royal College of Nursing, (2008) defines dignity as ‘Dignity is concerned with how people feel, think and behave in relation to the worth or value of themselves and
Moral integrity is the key ingredients and navigator in professional nurses that lead to ultimate goal of nursing care. It has been recognized as a fundamental part of professional nurses’ practice (Ulrich et al, 2010; Pavlish et al, 2012). Professional nurses play the largest role to support the need for individualized treatment of the patient. The goals of the profession of nursing are related to ethical and involve protecting patients from harm while providing care that is the most benefit for the patient (Bosek, 2009; Kopala&Burkhart, 2005; Helft, 2011; Susan, 2013,). Nowadays, professional nurses have encountered to face and manage with moral problem that occur from complexity of patient health problems, advances in technology, inappropriate of health care system, policies and priorities that conflict with care needs, inadequate staffing and increased turnover, or lack of administrative support (Brazil et al. 2010; Eizenberg et al. 2009; Elpern et al. 2005; Epstein, 2008; Gutierrez, 2005; Peter, 2008; Radzvin, 2010; Redman and Fry, 2000; Solomon et al. 2005; Sporrong et al. 2006; Wigglelon et al 2010).
A qualitative study focuses on natural settings that are associated in everyday life. Typically, qualitative researchers often do their study on smaller sample sizes as they are not looking to establish a statistical generalization in their findings. Qualitative research does not involve statistical measures or quantity of any kind, instead it is the study that involves lived human experiences. A lived human experience can be interpreted as gaining personal knowledge in everyday life by living through something or being involved in life events. The purpose of this paper is to analyze and critique the study if R.C. Stenhouse and his attempt to understand patient experiences in a acute psychiatric ward
My personal philosophy of nursing seeks to incorporate the art of conveying nursing science holistically with care and human dignity. The four nursing metaparadigm concepts are described in relation to nursing as a science and an art and provide the base upon which my view of nursing and my personal philosophy are derived. As a nursing student at UIC, I am well aware of the fact that the best outcome for any patient may not be improvement in health, but rather, a dignified death during the end of life care. End of life care includes a significant quality in care and human dignity.

There are personal concerns, physical, social, emotional, social, and family areas that will be affected because of the car accident. As a patient, I want the night nurse to effectively communicate with me by asking me questions by paraphrasing to show understanding of my concerns. My main concern as a student is regaining my ability to walk again so therefore I would want the night nurse to show empathy during my hospital stay.
Everyone’s values and beliefs about the profession of nursing are all different. The four concepts of nursing are interrelated and all mean something different to every person, too. Throughout this paper, I will be reflecting on my values and beliefs about nursing through the four concepts while comparing them to a nursing theorist with views that are most similar to my own.
As part of my studies of the Perspectives on nursing module I have been assigned to examine dignity as a value which underpins nursing practice. Dignity is a multi-faceted concept and can be defined as ‘’ The state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect’ (https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/dignity, 2015)’. Respect for the dignity of the person is the number one principle of the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives (NMBI, 2014). Also, this principle notably finds its origins in the Universal Declaration of human rights (United Nations, 1948) (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, 2014). Throughout this piece I will emphasize how this principle interacts with nursing
My philosophy of nursing is a statement I will stand by as a nursing student and as a graduate nurse and will continue to incorporate it into my daily care. In my eyes, nursing is the ability to provide safe, holistic care to all people regardless of their age, race, gender, social status, or sexuality. Nursing is a profession in which it is essential to be caring and respectful of all patients in which they may be experiencing the most difficult health situations of their lives and to provide culturally safe care.
