I made the decision to pursue the field of nursing because it embraces so many aspects of a career that I have been looking to be a part of. I wanted a career where I have a chance to make a positive impact on individuals’ lives, where my natural disposition to help others and care for them will be of great benefit and where I have the opportunity to grow and advance within the profession.

Even with a brief nursing career, most nurses will agree that nursing has been and will remain one of the most satisfying careers; “…as long as there are people that have the desire to change the world, one relationship at a time”. (Pellico, 2006, p.33) Many people enter nursing for personal reasons, such as having to learn how to take care of a loved one with a new diagnosis or having family in the nursing field. This paper will also show growth in the baccalaureate nursing program from the original philosophy paper.

I have several strengths that will help my ability to connect with patients on a more personal level and not just business.

I believe that the focus of nursing is evidenced based clinical practice. I provide care for patients of all ages and backgrounds and use a holistic approach based on the patient’s emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and psychological needs.

Magnet Hospitals Do They Give Better Nursing Care Magnet Hospitals Do They Give Better Nursing Care A Magnet hospital is one where nursing delivers excellent patient outcomes, where nurses have a high level of job satisfaction, and where there is a low staff nurse turnover. Magnet status also indicates nursing involvement in data collection and decision-making in patient care delivery.

Magnet Status was first granted in 1982 by the American Academy of Nursing to 41 hospitals with high retention rates for nurses.
