Besides, it taught me about how to be a careful nurse at the same time try to fulfill the patient’s needs. Decision making is important. As a nurse, we need to think the rationales before you provide your care to or for the patient.

My personal philosophy of nursing is based on holistic care which includes the mental and physical health of a person. I believe examining the whole picture and variables that play into a patient’s health is necessary to successful outcomes as well as effective communication. I think of Peplau because her theory discusses interpersonal relations and I am a firm believer in developing a strong, therapeutic nurse-patient relationship. Without a strong nurse-patient relationship, patient’s may not have the trust they should, therefore will not learn the tools necessary to be able to care for themselves. I strive each day in practice to develop strong nurse-patient
It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
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. Holistic care includes caring for an individual as a whole by assessing their physical, psychological, spiritual, social and cultural needs and providing care in an environment which supports this philosophy (Price, 2006).
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. My values of nursing shape my practice as a nurse and are affected by my views on health. In my eyes, health is not solely related to medical illness and disease.

14486198 Part A According to the Oxford English Dictionary, dignity may be defined as “the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect.” (2015) Dignity and respect are two of the underpinning values of nursing care. It is highly important to show respect and unconditional positive regard to each and every patient regardless of their culture, race, religion or background. In doing this, it can assist the patient in feeling more comfortable in the care of nurses and hopeful that they will fully recover from their illness.

Nurses should work to assure that the relevant parties are involved and have a voice in decision-making about patient care issues. Nurses should see that the question that need to be addressed are asked and the information needed for informed decision-making is available and provided. Nurse should actively promote the collaborative multi-disciplinary planning required to ensure the availability and accessibility of quality health services to all persons who have needs for health care. Intra-professional collaboration within nursing is fundamental to effectively addressing the health needs of patients and the public. Nurses engaged in non-clinicals roles, such as administration or research, while not providing direct care, nonetheless are collaborating in the provision of care through their influence and direction of those who do.
The provision one of nursing code of ethics stated that “the nurse practices with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth, and personal attributes of every person, without prejudice” (Fowler, 2010). Under this provision, the nurse needs to respect for human dignity, establish a trusting relationship with patients without bias or prejudice, and respect patient’s autonomy. According to this provision, as a future nurse, I am obligated to respect patient’s health care choices regardless of my personal belief. I can assist the patient in making health care choice for patient’s best interest; however, I should not impose my personal belief in influencing patient’s decision. I should also care for all patients without judgments.
