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.

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.
Personal Nursing Philosophy Nursing has developed from its original roots, to become a personal philosophy to those who practice it. This paper describes my personal philosophy of nursing that I plan to practice in my own personal career. I believe that nursing is founded on the principles of it being a helping process with a focus on interpersonal relationships between a nurse and someone else. Nursing not only involves treating an illness, but it also provides quality patient-centered care. My philosophy involves having a strong base knowledge of medicine as well as being able to provide compassionate patient-centered care.
This paper explains the personal nursing philosophy I plan to convey in my nursing career. I believe a nurse is someone with a calling who dedicates their life to helping those in need. Nursing is more than treating an illness; it focuses on delivering quality patient care that is individualized to the needs of each patient. Nursing is to be able to incorporate the knowledge of medicine and compassionate caring while respecting the integrity of each patient. I believe nursing care should be holistic while honoring patient values.
It should have a logical and congruence, coherence and continuity. In my philosophy of the nursing, Nurses have responsibilities to the public to provide safe and secure environment, and patient centered care. Patients are individuals who require care and attention. We as nurses should use our nursing judgment to help meet the patient needs , and as an advocators should encourage them in the decision making and in their treatment plan. We as a nurse also have commitment to learn and improve our knowledge and skills .
I feel very strongly about family, empathy, and supportive relationships. In my personal experience, family provide structure, hope, support, and friendship. In my nursing practice, I will strive to create supportive relationships with my patient and their family by being empathetic during their time of need. As a nurse it is important to establish a therapeutic relationship to build trust and securement with the patient and family. Building therapeutic relationships allows the patient to feel supported and understood and may help to provide health information, which may otherwise be held in a nontherapeutic relationship.
This relationship is central to the client's concerned with approach to health care, and will show some of the skills that are developed by the medical practitioner, to enhance therapeutic relationship. Nursing is the art of caring, promoting, and optimizing of health and abilities, prevention of illness and suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and acts as advocator to individuals, families, communities, and populations. Thus, emotional intelligence and reflective practice are important components for building a therapeutic relationship. Therapeutic relationship in nursing can be built through emotional intelligence which means how can nurses potential for mastering the skills of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management translates into on-the-job success. In nursing, it is important to understand client’s emotions in order to provide the needed health care.

When I realized this, I realized that I had a purpose in this aspect of patient care. In closing, understanding that caring for patients encompasses the body, mind, spirit and environment is a crucial part of applying holistic practice in nursing. Helping a patient recover and return to their highest level of health in all of these aspects is an important aspect of nursing for me. When I think of holistic nursing, I think of the term humanity.
Nursing is about having a positive attitude to help and accepting help from others when needed and making a difference in others lives.

Therefore, nursing is fundamentally a caring profession. My theoretical lens is caring as a crucial component of the nursing occupation. This lens focuses on a nurse’s actions as they care for a patient and help them recuperate from the illness or problem they are facing during their hospital stay. Caring requires that I, as a patient’s nurse and advocate, make rightful decisions and actions to assist them in improving their deteriorated health status. In order to appropriately care for the patient, their background and where they come from must be taken into account so respect is shown throughout the care provided to them.
