Personal Philosophy of Nursing and Nursing Education Nursing is a discipline of knowledge acquired through formal education and through life experiences. My philosophy of nursing is to always see the beauty in the art of being a nurse. I chose nursing as my profession as caring for people and the nursing profession is a true art form. It takes empathy for people by upstanding morals and values. As a nurse, my goal is to provide competent, empathetic, compassionate, and optimal holistic care to the best of my ability to my patients.
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.
I think the areas that will help me most as a nurse are ideation, individualization, and strategic. Ideation has helped me to learn ideas and concepts quickly. So, I can explain them to those around me including patients. Likewise, being able to focus on the individual means I can what people need by finding the best way to act that out. It particularly helps in the areas of educating, and advocating for the patient, as many procedures and protocols will be the same.
I want my philosophy for nursing to incorporate the knowledge of I have learned from school while being able to combine it with relational and compassionate care that will give respect and dignity to all my patients. I believe nursing care is evidence based with a holistic view while honoring patient’s cultural values. An important aspect of my philosophy is the inter-personal relationships that develops while using collaborative efforts among health care professionals to promote the best quality care for the
Altruism, “the term is derived from Latin ‘alteri’ or ‘the other’, and describes unselfish attention to the needs of others” (Haigh, 2010, p. 1402). Nurses demonstrate altruism by advocating for their patients, especially for those who are unable to protect themselves. These actions create a climate of caring and professionalism. Growing up, I have always admired nurses because of what they represent and their patience to take care of sick individuals. I became a nurse because I wanted to find a stable and fulfilling career.
Every day brings more opportunity and more experiences. My most important contribution to nursing right now is my positive outlook on life, enthusiasm, and the ability to offer hope to patients and their families. The contribution I hope to make to nursing in the future is being a leader and mentor, and be an inspiration to others to enter into the nursing profession. I would also like to contribute to improving healthcare quality through becoming a nurse educator and share my knowledge and experience with
Each patient should be treated with a holistic approach and be a part of their own care. I want to give back to my community by educating and helping people better their lives. Nursing combines many exceptional skills in order to help people promote healthy lifestyles. Nurses are acknowledged as leaders in the community through the education of prevention. Nurses use critical thinking skills in order to detect and educate patients on potential risk factors.
They believe that the relationship between the patient and nurse is very important, as do I. In or... ... middle of paper ... ...from their patients. I believe our patients bring out the better in us and help us stop and realize the many amazing things in our lives. Nursing is an amazing career and I am beyond blessed and excited to go through this journey in my life to become a nurse! There is nothing I love more than doing my best to help people.
My goal has always been to become a nurse, and I feel I should complete this because I know I can. I want to learn and be effective at my job. I want to utilize my skills and knowledge. I want to grow and be as helpful in life as I can. Also, I want to help those that need help, to make them feel better.
When it comes to professionalism, I idolize the PUC teachers. During the whole Registered Nursing (RN) program they have helped me develop leadership skills to deliver the best care for the patients. Throughout the program, I would like to refine my leadership skills at the BSN level to collaborate with the health care professionals to provide the finest care for the patients. Making wise decisions, delivering patients with appropriate information and good speaking manners also determines one’s professionalism. I’m looking forward to preserve strong knowledge base, leadership skills and improve the evidence based practice skills to deliver positive patient outcomes.
