My personal perception of nursing is an occupation that requires lots of love, patience, empathy, care for others, dedication and skills. A nurse is the one that stays by his/her patients’ side as they are experiencing pain or even death. Nurses do more than bathing the patients or offering them pain medications. They are there to provide comfort and emotionally connect with their patients. When I was young, I was hospitalized for appendicitis.

Clinical Observation Based on my observations of Sarah and her family I believe that Sarah would benefit more by staying at her home with her family. Though Sarah is being taken care of by her family, I am very concerned with her behavior towards herself and her family. First, I think that Sarah needs to be seen by a doctor so that her condition can be diagnosed and so her family can know how to continue to better take care of her. I also believe that Sarah needs to be taught how to communicate whether it’s verbal or nonverbally, so that she can better communicate with her family. Why?

Ways of Knowing Related to Nursing Theory Emily Amstutz University of Missouri Kansas City MSN FNP Program Abstract Carper (1978) presents four fundamental ways of knowing that have been developed from emerging patterns in the discipline of nursing: (a) empirical way of knowing, (b) esthetic way of knowing, (c) personal knowledge, and (d) ethics.

As a leader within my fraternity, I've performed and practiced therapeutic communication without even being aware of it. This week I was able to active listen to patients, such as a patient who explained his glaucoma to us and how it was partially fixed, but a complication arose that needs to be assessed and stabilized. I also was able to sit down and talk with a patient before her bath to see what she wanted to wear. Asking open ended questions, active listening, being silent to give her time to respond, etc. enforced my therapeutic communication within the healthcare setting. A non-therapeutic bias I've come to realize is that instead of talking to the patient, I communicated to the nurse instead.
