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.
The nurse’s passion is what is most important to their career; nursing takes a lot of dedication and a good nurse puts a lot of heart into their career. Passion is what drives a nurse to be better and
I am very interested in this career because I enjoy helping people and I feel like nurses are some of the most genuine people and I would love to be a part of that. A quality I have that I think would make for a good nurse is that I am very compassionate and I have patience for many things. Registered Nurses are the most well known of all the different types of nursing professionals. There are a series of different fields nurses can choose to specialize in. They can choose to specialize in areas like assisting in the operating room, working with children, working with people who are excessively sick or intensive care, working with old people or working with people who are psychologically ill.
It helps guide nurses in focusing on the quality of patient care to provide for better outcomes. One of Parse’s models that I believe closely relates to nurses is the teaching-learning model. “Teaching-learning is a never-ending journey of giving-receiving in coming to know, and is an ever-changing unitary process that focuses on the individuals’ responsibility for learning and a belief in truth for the moment” (Parse, 2007, pg. 33). This model affects me as a nurse in a positive way.
Working at Cleveland Clinic, I got a great opportunity to work with a group of doctors and coworkers who have the same mission in life and job as mine; “Put the patient first”. Making a positive impact on patient’s life, big or small, noticed or unnoticed, gives me a great sense of accomplishment and makes me proud to be a nurse. My journey for RN to BSN is not long, but I am learning so much every day that I do not want it to end. It has changed my approach of nursing in many ways. The important lesson I learned is to be a good listener.
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.
We as nurses are here to restore health and prevent further health detriments through caring for our patient. While giving care and preventing illness is the central idea of nursing, none of it would be possible without the foundation of knowledge learned in nursing school. A requirement for professional status would be “A profession has a theoretical body of knowledge leading to defined skills, abilities, and norms.” This statement summarizes so much of what I love about nursing. Nurses are constantly throughout the day putting their extensive knowledge to use. This in turn shows how well defined the skills and abilities of a nurse actually are.
My philosophy involves having a strong base knowledge of medicine as well as being able to provide compassionate patient-centered care. I believe nursing is holistic and committed to achieving the best patient outcome. My belief of nursing being holistic is that it involves a person, environment, health, and nursing. I also believe that it is extremely important for nurses to be able to work in interprofessional teams as well as work together with other healthcare professionals to stimulate superior patient care. My personal nursing philosophy with be something I continually follow and strive for throughout my career.
Nurses provide comfort and security, as well as a knowledge of medical aid. The field of nursing has the benefit of coming from a field that is ancient, yet timeless and has blossomed throughout history to make a large impact on our culture today. A nurse’s role in our society today is exceptionally significant. Nurses are somewhat idolized and looked to as our everyday “superman”. “The mission of nursing in society is to help individuals, families, and groups to determine and achieve physical, mental, and social potential, and to do so within the challenging context of the environment in which they live and work” (“The Role of a Nurse/Midwife”).
I’m very passionate about my future as a nurse and have great intentions towards my education. It won’t be easy and I don’t expect it to be. There’s no looking back for me now. I know I’ve chosen the right profession and I’ll continue to have such enthusiasm about my future. I hope one day, I can fulfill my dreams of becoming a nurse and give back to the community.
