The ‘6C’s’ were launched by England’s Chief Officer Jane Cummings who believes that the ‘6C’s’ stand for the commitment of each professional to provide outstanding care for patients, with dignity and compassion while continuing to remain consistent as they achieve excellent health and wellbeing outcomes (RCNI, 2015). The ‘6C’s consist of, care, compassion, competence, communication, courage, and commitment. However for this assignment the focus will lie primarily on courage, an important trait in life and in nursing practice (Dobos, 2015) .It allows us to be brave and do the right thing for the people that we are caring for (RCNI, 2015). Being courageous helps nurses identify poor practise and speak up reinforcing strategies to increase the best standard of care for patients. Various topics will be discussed throughout this assignment such as, why courage is important for nursing, how to be courageous as a nurse, the benefits of having courage as a nurse, and the current issues.

Philosophy of Care and Professional Organizations Personal Statement Grand Canyon University: NUR 440 Heather Reed February 5, 2016 Philosophy of Care and Professional Organizations Personal Statement Personal Statement I chose nursing as my occupation because I believe that it is my calling to help others and to care for those in need. In order to conclude if there is a fit between the healthcare field and myself, I must first ensure that there is a fit between my personal values and the organizations. My values include an environment with patient-centered-care, kindness, honesty, leadership, education, evidence-based practice, and quality nursing practice. It is my philosophy that nurses are given the responsibility to deliver safe and universal care that is centered on the needs of the patient. Patients shouldn’t be viewed as just another ailment or medical diagnosis, but instead as real living, breathing people who need our help and deserve our attention and care.
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).

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.
Following the ethical dilemma for nurses to receive or not to receive vaccinations is described in the CNA code of ethics which says that nurses are to promote health and well-being, “Nurses provide care directed first and foremost toward the health and well-being of the person, family, or community in their care.” (CNA, 2008) This ethical value falls under the nursing value of beneficence which nurses pledge to never cause any sort of harm (Beauchamp, 2010). It is a nurse’s job to inform and educate clients on the risks of disease and infection, and the prevention or use of vaccination. With refusal to vaccination “nurses have to recognize, respect and promote a person’s right to be informed and make decisions.” This also falls under the nursing principle of autonomy, which explains to have respect for that person to make their own decisions. (Beauchamp, 2010). If a resident refuses immunization treatment the nurse must respect the informed decision of a capable person, including their choice of lifestyle and treatment to non conductive care (CNA,
Nightingale founded the Nightingale Nursing School in London in 1860 and created the foundation theory for practice and education of the nursing world.

Theory As the proponent of the first nursing theory, Florence Nightingale gave the Environmental theory that focused primarily on the patients and their surrounding environment. The theory as reflected in the words of Nightingale (1860/1982) states that the major objective of a nurse is to provide their patient the best possible condition for nature to act upon him and the responsibility of reducing noise, relieving patients’ stress and anxieties, and helping them relax and sleep, lies with the nurse. The main theme of the theory was the nurse’s

I aim to be a nurse for the lifelong learning experiences that will allow me to grow and develop each day. As an interdisciplinary profession, nursing employs numerous duties beyond medical care. Critical thinking and creativity are vital to give patients the best treatment possible, as well as empathy and kindheartedness to display care and to promote comfort for patients and their families. Employing these qualities
