It is important to explore one’s personal values and principles that will guide your nursing practice. Philosophical and theoretical outlooks provide the foundation for all nursing actions including practice and research. A nursing philosophy not only guides one practice but also facilitates knowledge, and the development of knowledge to further advance nursing theory into practice.

Caring is the essence of nursing. As a nurse, we establish a caring relationship with our patients, and provide the best individualize care and interventions to promote healing. Jean Watson’s focus of practice is the patient and the theory places the patient in the context of the family, the community and the culture. The major concepts of Jean Watson’s theory of caring are transpersonal caring relationships, caring moments/caring occasions and the ten caritas processes. I will describe how this theory can be applied in practice and show an example from my own practice.
My nursing philosophy is commitment, understanding, honor, trust, honesty, friendliness, compassion, companionship, togetherness, caring, and love. I believe the nature of nursing is entrenched in my commitment to public service and the undeniable desire to help those in need. Nursing is more than just treating an illness; it’s caring for the entire individual. Consequently, by helping to nurse them back to health mind body and soul this gives me a sense of accomplishment. My perspective is not just about focusing on the task at hand but more about delivering quality patient care that is individualized to the needs of each patient.
There are four concepts to person-centered nursing -a) being in relation which lays emphasis on the creation of therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient, b) being in a social world connotes the ability of the person to connect with the world and make meaning out of it ,c) being in place encourages us to focus on the care experiences we receive anywhere and finally d) being with self is the knowing of self and the values we hold dear in life.

Nursing Metaparadigm and the Caring Theory Jacqueline Koch, BSN, RN-BC University of Southern Indiana Caring is the foundation of nursing practice and the profession. Caring is “a nurturing way of relating to a valued other toward whom one feels a personal sense of commitment and responsibility” (Swanson, 1991, pg 165). This paper will discuss Swanson’s Theory of Caring and the author’s personal metaparadigm and how caring guides nursing practice. Personal Metaparadigm It is the belief of this author that when nurses know the why behind the care there will be improvement in patient care and outcomes. Nursing theory is the why behind the care the nurse provides, and it is important for nurses to have a basic understanding

Synthesis of Knowledge- Synthesis of Knowledge was attained throughout the entire degree process, from the beginning, it was necessary to engage the arts and sciences to formulate papers, complete projects, and study for exams.
