My philosophy of nursing integrates the importance of knowledge base practice of medicine, combined with addressing holistic needs of the patient and family, including the physical, psychological, cognitive, emotional, spiritual and social care (Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network, 2010). Additionally, a vital aspect of nursing is effective interpersonal relationships with other healthcare professionals to promote quality patient care. Moreover, my philosophy includes the importance the client-nurse relationship to aid in health promotion to prevent illness and increase the level of health of clients. Factors Influencing the Development of Personal Philosophy My philosophy is based on my personal values and beliefs as it relates to the body of work in nursing. The practice of nursing not only involves applying knowledge but the ability to differentiate the needs of the client and being empathetic to their needs.
Nursing is about having a positive attitude to help and accepting help from others when needed and making a difference in others lives. As a nurse, it is important for me to take care of an individual while respecting their culture and beliefs and have the family involved while delivering the best care safely.

I will focus on the empowerment of the patient in the delivery of holistic and evidence based practices of nursing care. This paper dives into the values I feel are not only important, but necessary in relating to patients as well as other health care professionals, my personal work culture, and society as a
Firstly, I am convinced that being a great nurse is to be a caring nurse. This is why I choose Jean Waston’s nursing theory, as Watson’s theory contains a holistic proceed towards the patient’s care, and is concentrated on the bond between the patient and nurse (Crisp &Taylor, 2005). According to Waston’s theory it includes rationality and study of caring; caring is an interpersonal procedure containing interventions that outcome in addressing human needs (Crisp &Taylor,2005 p.69). In my viewpoint, the demonstration of my word’s “caring” and "knowledgeable" are firmly connected on the grounds that it includes both the patient and myself. On the off chance that having knowledge and caring, towards my patients a close bond will be established.
Behaviors which reflect altruism are showing an understanding of cultures, beliefs, and perspective of others, advocating for patients, taking risks on behalf of patients, and mentoring other professionals. Autonomy according to Taylor is the right to self-determination (2008). The nurse must respect the patient’s rights. The nurse should listen and act according to the patient’s wishes and needs not bullying him into cooperating with his treatment plan. The nurse shows such value by planning care in partnership with patients, honoring the right of patients to make decisions about healthcare, and providing information so that patients can make informed choices.
The theory that Hildegard Peplau created was the importance of nurse-patient relationships (Smith & Park, 2015, p. 68). Both of these theories put the patient’s safety and care first. When I am at work I try to form a healthy and healing relationship with all my patients. I also make sure the environment that they are in is conducive to healing,
The major concepts of Watson’s theory focus on the roots of caring, such as the transpersonal relationship of caring, caring moments and the caritas process. “Caring has been considered to be the ontological and epistemological foundation of nursing and the essence and central focus for nursing” (Sargent, 2012, p. 135). By applying Watson’s theory in practice, nurses can provide meaningful care and connect on a more personal level with patients, creating a healing environment. Transpersonal Caring Relationships Establishing a “Transpersonal Caring Relationship” is an essential part of the caring process. This means as nurses we must focus on understanding the relationship between health, illness and behavior.
It also influences how well a patient copes with the situation and how the nurse should be supportive and considerate towards the patient. Watson defines nursing as “a human science of persons and human health-illness experiences that are mediated by professional, personal, scientific, esthetic and ethical human transactions” (Nursing Theories, 2012, para. 4). Nursing should be more than just providing medical care, it should establish a relationship and build trust. Watson’s other concepts of her theory include the caring occasion, transpersonal caring, phenomenal field, self, and
The importance of caring within the field of nursing is significant in the overall health outcome of a patient. Caring is important for nurses to display empathy, support, and confidence, when establishing a relationship with a patient. The idea of caring is crucial when offering care to a patient and determining a care plan that is achievable. The role a nurse displays helps patients and families achieve a positive outcome. Nursing is centered on the concept of caring and the art it exhibits when achieving total human care.
Patient advocacy is when information, skills, and resources are used to voice decisions to improve the quality of care for those individuals who are unable to effectively speak for themselves. The nurse plays an essential role in speaking up and also protecting patient rights when trying to make a decision relating to their health. The main idea of the analysis is to understand the concept of advocacy and roles of a nurse in any type of healthcare
