Mary Denton story has taught me so much such as the difference one person can make in someone’s live. I use a patient-centered approach to care, which encompasses the total needs of the patient; I also encourage the family to become closely involved in patient’s health care. As all these factors plays an integral role in the patient’s recovery. Florence Nightingale understood very well the psychological connection to healing and actually believed that nurses should always speak up when things were unacceptable or inadequate.

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.
I love knowing that I can try to help make someone 's life better just by doing something small, or even something big. I am a nurse, and I am going to Belmont College to continue my education in the field of nursing. I want to be a nurse because I love learning about what all the body does, and what things can affect it. I also want to be a nurse because I love helping others, and I want to do it for the rest of my life. I absolutely love Nursing.
In my practice, I provide care to the best of my ability. I empathize with my patients when they are having a bad day and I provide laughter when it’s a good day. To go into the nursing profession it is imperative that you care for others, without care for your patients there is less chance for cure. If a patient does not feel cared for they may feel they are not important and that can cause them stress, making it more difficult to get better. My Philosophy for my nursing career always has been and will continue to be to provide the best care possible for my patients, ensuring they feel cared for and their needs are met.
As we know, nursing is not for everyone. You must have a strong heart and a true compassion for others while working in the nursing field. The reason I chose nursing is because I want to be the one to make a positive impact in peoples’ lives. Knowing that I can help care for someone and/or their family in a time of need is truly rewarding. Who I am as a nurse?
The responsibility lays within each individual nurse as to the level of caring and compassion that they bring to carrying out their nursing duties. I will continually choose to focus on the needs of my patients above my own. Displaying empathy, I will strive to put myself in each one of their shoes and make self-reflection a priority. I foresee that I will do whatever is within my power to enhance trust, comfort, happiness, and wellness for my patients. This may look like spending extra time with a patient, visiting a patient when I’m off-duty, providing emotional or spiritual resources to a patient, respecting a patient’s beliefs and values, providing for any physical needs or extra comfort measures, or just lending a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on.
I want to make an impact on someone’s life. A lot of what many people don’t understand is that nurses aren’t just there to help the sick, but the title of nurse comes with an array of jobs ranging anywhere from caregiver to educator. I choose nursing because my philosophy, my values, and my beliefs, guided me to a profession in which
It is not just about treating the illness, it is also about treating the patient’s needs that are more than just health. We have to treat the patient with respect, make sure we bring joy to their lives even when they are suffering, and make sure we care properly for the patient both physically and mentally. We have to have a strong background and be competent in what we do on a daily basis. Personal Philosophy of Nursing
Whether I listen, give a hug, or I’m a shoulder to cry on, I know I make a difference in my patients and their families’ lives.

That’s why I continue to work at the hospital. I like to think I can help empower them to make the best choices in their healthcare.
