She defines nursing as a profession that focuses on life processes (Punjani, 2013). Nurses in the adaptation model contribute to health, quality of life, and dying with dignity. Nurses effectively assist patients to adapt by using the nursing process, assessing the patient, the stimuli, determining, along with the patient and their support group, the goals, and the most effective way to reach those goals. The nurse takes a holistic approach to achieve successful adaptation. Some examples of how a nurse might do this include; taking care of physical pain, helping the patient resolve family conflicts, determining if the patient could benefit from a counselor, helping the patient with feelings of
Accountability and Its Implications on Respect for the Nursing Profession When looking after the well-being of others there are many factors that contribute to the satisfaction of patients. The nurse must ensure that they are providing appropriate care to the patient as well as reflecting on how their actions towards the patient can affect both the patient and themselves. Nurses are trusted professionals that must understand the definition of accountability and how this definition influences the way they perform nursing tasks. Accountability entails taking ownership for one’s actions, reporting these findings to a superior, and accepting the legal implications associated with the offense (Battié & Steelman 2014). The purpose of defining accountability
As nurses, the word care or caring is not only apart of our vocabulary but it is also the driving force behind how we treat our patients and their families. Providing comfort, being compassionate, tranquil, thoughtful, and selfless are all ways that nurses provide care for their 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.
After all, it is nurses who are responsible for maintaining the integrity of our profession. Truth Telling and Promise Keeping: Foundations of the Nurse-Patient Relationship The right thing to do was obvious, when put into the perspective of the patient and the nurse-patient relationship. Tele-nursing involves a special sort of nurse patient relationship, one that must be developed with an immediate rapport and understanding of trust with a caller (Nagel, Pomerleau & Penner, 2013). Patients enter into a relationship with the provider and by extension, the after-hours nursing staff, and place their trust in their provider at a potentially vulnerable time (Carter, 2009). While training a nurse who was new to telephone triage, it became evident to me through several calls and transactions that the nurse was not honest in her interactions.
To create environments that foster a nurturing workplace that values the hard work that nursing professionals are subjected to employers need to highlight the caring environment, individual focus and holistic healing methods that they use for patient satisfaction and incorporate those thoughts and ideas into valuing the nurses that deliver the
