Within this approach, it is the job of the client to improve his or her own life, not the job of the therapist. The therapist is there more as a guide to finding one’s true self, rather than the person in the session who is to give all of the answers away. Because of this unique relationship in each situation, there is a lack of techniques to use within the therapeutic session.
A therapeutic nurse-patient relationship is defined as a helping relationship that's based on mutual trust and respect, the nurturing of faith and hope, being sensitive to self and others, and assisting with the gratification of your patient's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through your knowledge and skill (Pullen & Tabatha, 2010).

My experience working on PCU/telemetry unit and surgical/trauma unit did not only allow me to obtain knowledge on various different medical conditions and surgeries, it also assisted me with my organization skills and time management. As a leader working as a charge nurse and a preceptor, I am autonomous and able to multitask. Also from working with various different healthcare professionals, I am aware of different roles each healthcare team members play in the process of patient care. As a Family Nurse Practitioner student, I plan to advance my ability and my awareness to program my mind to think like an Advance Practice Nurse while not losing the valuable skills and knowledge that I have gained as a Registered Nurse.
