However, it is important to remember that throughout the career of a nurse, there is a continuing of knowledge. As there is a continuation of love and caring. Caring is the reason that a person chooses to become a nurse, it is the reason that they are able to stay in nursing school, and it is what sets the good nurses above all of the
Caring is a basic attribute of human growth and development (Griffin 1983). This is why, as a nursing student I know it is such an important strength to be utilised when helping a patient to feel better. Good listener: The ability to listen when others are talking is another strength that I
Masters (2017) states that our philosophy is derived from a process of lifelong learning which allows us to find the truth. This process of learning provides us with experiences about; ourselves, others and the environment, in essence it provides a structure for our thinking. In addition, Buresh and Gordon (2000) stated that a nurse philosophy is hinged on the nurse’s values and beliefs regarding the profession and is acquired through observation and experiences over time. In fact, a person’s belief indicates what he

Reflection has been strongly advocated by the English National Board for Nursing & Midwifery (1994), United Kingdom Central Council (UKCC) (1996), and a wealth of nursing literature over the past decade to improve nursing practice. Reflection is an in-depth consideration of events or situations outside of one-self, solitary, or with critical support. Burnard (1995) argues that, reflection has its roots in experiential learning, as it forms the second stage of the experiential learning cycle. Active reflection gives nurses the confidence in terms of clinical decision making. It can also be a meaning of identifying strengths and weaknesses in practice and enabling nurses to learn from their mistakes.
Unfortunately, there are numerous ethical dilemmas in the field of nursing. Each day a new conflict may arise that goes against your ethical beliefs, but as a nurse you still must follow through with the patients wishes and provide them with the medical care they need. The authors of “Ethical Problems Observed by Student Nurses,” Fethiye Erdil and Fatos Korkmaz, are in the department of nursing at Hacettepe University. This article is based off a study that was conducted in Turkey with 153 nursing students in a university-based nursing program. The study lead to the discovery that patents where mistreated by the medical staff, and the confidentiality of the patient was often ignored.
I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others. The STNA classes I completed to receive certification and the work as a patient aid that followed helped me confirm that I was making the right choice with respect to my career choice. I worked as a personal care aid in an assisted living home to gain knowledge and experience and I am extremely grateful for that opportunity. Working in the health care field provided a chance to care for the elderly and watch nurses do their jobs. I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families.
Usually there is leg pulling between coworkers. Nurses usually tries to compete with each other rather than working with collaboration. Nurses does not trust on each other and blames on each other for any mistake or wrong work. Furthermore when any critical issue happens in the hospital then there is a poor communication with the management. In the critical issues the nurses are always blamed by the management and does not gets any support from them in the time of crises.
Almost every day either one or two staffs will call in to report sick or request for urgent leave. And because of the absenteeism, the ward constantly faced with a shortfall of manpower, which leads to unhappiness among the staffs. Most typical reason given was not feeling well, while others could be due to family matters that could not permit them to report for duty. The issues have been highlighted to our superior, where possible strategies have been ruled out to reduce the absenteeism rate. One of the strategies that have been implanted by sisters in the ward is that they will monitor staffs absenteeism rate for every month.
I am a Registered Staff nurse who working at Bukit Batok Polyclinic. I am currently studying at the University of Sydney at Singapore Institute of Management pursuing Bachelor in Nursing (Post -registration ) programme. I am writing this letter because I would like to share with you my thoughts on the important of studying the discipline of nursing. I have a deep realization that it is important to study discipline of nursing. Oxford 's dictionary defines that discipline as ‘ a branch of knowledge, typically one studied in higher education’ .
Patients with Alzheimer 's are not able to perform these daily tasks because they may forget how to do them. For example, if someone with Alzheimer 's needed to take a certain prescription at a certain time, they may forget, or if they do remember, they may not take the correct amount needed. This could become a very high risk for the patient dying due to an overdose. All the care required for Alzheimer 's patients puts a lot of added stress onto the caregiver. They can feel social withdrawal towards society, anxiety about what the next day brings, depression that changes your outlook, anger towards the patient and how they aren 't doing what they were able to do at one point of time, denial and thinking that it will get better, exhaustion about daily tasks, lack of concentration that makes performing familiar tasks difficult, and health problems that can affect your mental and physical health (alz.org).
She looks out for her nursing staff and always trying to help them in any way. She believes in participatory leadership and involves staff nurses at every level in the decision-making process. Nurses have commented that they feel open to be creative in problem solving and that administrative support is there backing them up, but not overwhelming them. I admire and respect Patricia Johnson as a nurse leader because she demonstrates many great qualities all nurse leaders should have. She inspires me to become a great nurse full of knowledge and passion for providing the best possible care to others in need.
therefore, improve quality of life. This is due in part to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, personal variables and interaction of internal and external variables that impact communication with patients. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-19-2014/No.3-Sept.) Every nurse can employ to advocate for nursing as part as their daily activities must be point of care, nurse manager, or nurse educator. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-17-2012/No.1-Jan.) There is one common voice among nurses, if they accept to join. The American Nurses Association (ANA) is a professional organization that advocates and protects the profession of nurses.
This is why it is important as future nurses to start to research and make sure that the institution is keeping current with the latest best practice changes. Current Policy and Procedure For my capstone clinical, I was at St. Vincent’s Postpartum Unit. Here, I learned many valuable skills while taking care of mom and baby.

The staff must utilize teamwork but no one is available, she becomes burnout with the extra workload on top of her current schedule of duties. The problem brings on stress which contributes unforeseen errors by the employee and in the practice. Nevertheless, enormous strains are determined to be conceptually distinct, and threats that will in due course impinge on the professional values and obligations. Scott (2014) found that "many jobs have "Crunch Time", where the worker must work longer hours and handle more intense workloads for a time" (pg.1). Prohibiting Healthcare Professional Burnout The prevention of staff burnout weighs heavily on the team of professionals in the clinic.
