I am a licensed practice nurse who is compassionate, competent, and displays empathy for all my patients. My personal and professional experiences help me contribute to clients’ recovery and wellness which gives me a sense of pride that strengthens my commitment to this profession. I enjoy making people feel better and that is what drove me to this profession and is currently driving me to further my career in the nursing field. I am currently pursuing a degree as a registered nurse at Gwinnett Technical College. I believe this degree will help me to furthering my career, which will allow me to expand my passion to care for the sick and ill.
All the things that I have learned while in nursing school has taught me how to become a health advocate for others. If a loved one is sick, I will be able to better advocate for them about specific treatment options available. I am blessed to have gotten the opportunity to attend nursing school as it has taught me such valuable lessons that I will carry with me
I know that the nursing profession is right for me, because I am the type of person who loves helping people and making sure that they are doing well. My personal strengths are shown when I am helping other people while they are struggling; I am compassionate, empathetic, optimistic, and truthful. I worry a lot about other people and how they are feeling, so I always strive to bring their mood back up. Being a compassionate person in nursing is important because the patient has to be see and trust that you care about them in order for them to feel comfortable with their treatment. Empathy in nursing is important, because a patient who is struggling needs to see that the nurse understands what the patient is struggling with physically and emotionally.
There is nothing I love more than doing my best to help people. I would love to continue my education someday and further myself into another career branched off of nursing. I cannot wait to see the future that is in store for me! Works Cited Baxter, C. (n.d.). Personal Philosophy of Nursing.
One must have the full desire to help and care for people in order to have an enjoyable career as a nurse. Nurses are known for the care and compassion shown to the patients and this is comforting for both patients and their families. Caring for a patient can raise their spirits and can inspire a better outlook on their situation. As a nurse, I want to care for all my patients with the hope of improving their health and outlook on their life. I chose Jean Watson because she understands that caring is the core of nursing and believes caring promotes a better health than only performing medical care.
Each nurse has their own set of values and practices that affect how they care for patients. Through my education I have been well informed about all of the parts of nursing that will make a great nurse. All patients deserve equal care and they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. I want to be a nurse that focuses on educating patients on how to better their quality of life. Each patient should be treated with a holistic approach and be a part of their own care.
Education is the key to success. Many people may not agree but I’ve always believed in this slogan. It expands one's awareness and opens the door to new and better job opportunities, evolving a person successfully in life. Obtaining an Associate Degree in Nursing was the first step towards the success. It took hard work, enthusiasm, determination and devotion to become a Registered Nurse.
Nursing revolves around a commitment to helping others in need, to become the healthiest they can possibly in all aspects of their being. A nurse needs to know how to care, that means to realize what it is that matters to the patient and how to help them get it, and the basis of my philosophy is that caring is the body of nursing, and nursing is not possible without caring. Caring in a professional sense is to prevent future harm, treat those who are ill, a commitment to learning how to provide the best possible care, and to maintain the patients dignity through all aspects of the care that is being provided. Patient care should always have a holistic root, this opens the door for the patient and nurse to interact in a way that can give the nurse insight into that patients values. Patients who are comfortable in their environment heal better and faster, and one of the best ways to make a person feel comfortable in an unfamiliar place is to establish a therapeutic relationship.
I chose nursing as my profession because nursing is my ideal profession. In nursing, I can provide others with the care and the knowledge they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I can also give others the love and attention they need to be proud of the life they live. I think that society is very vulnerable and I want to make great contributions to the world of nursing. I don’t just want to be a nurse.
Nurses have to create an environment that promotes healthy recovery for their patients. Before choosing to become a nurse, you have to see if you have the right qualities and characteristics. To be a nurse you need to be caring, compassionate, and have a desire to want to help those that are in need. When asked; why she wanted to join nursing, Registered Nurse Wyona exclaimed “I’ve always loved nursing, the thought of being a supporter and caregiver makes me feel good! It feels good being there for someone who 's sick or just needs small treatment.” That’s the basic principle of nursing providing care.
