Personal Philosophy of Nursing As a Registered Nurse and a Health Care Provide, I impact and influence patients and the people around me. It is important to know what your philosophy is and how you integrate that into how you care for and work with people. In my paper, I want to write about why I became a nurse, what I believe about nursing and where I think the profession is headed. Choice of Nursing I worked in health care for several years prior to becoming a nurse. My first health care job was as a pharmacy tech in a retail pharmacy.
NPs are often called in at odd hours when there are fewer physicians available and the clinic or hospital requires someone with physician-like authority, without the costs or burden. However, much of the freedom that nurse practitioners currently enjoy may
Once I started researching a career in nursing I realized that there were a lot more types of nurses then I had originally imagined. I have not decided on which field of nursing I would like to specialize in yet but I just imagine myself as a general nurse, working in a hospital setting. A Registered Nurse (RN) is not a doctor assistant; a RN gets to treat wounds, give IV’s and basically get to treat their own patients. Right now my main priority is to stay focused on taking all necessary steps to pursuing Nursing as a career.Gwendolyn Mink describes most Registered Nurses as working directly with the patients and their families. They are the families’ contact with the medical world, in the hospital and at the patients’ home.
There was no specific profession of nursing before Florence Nightingale started to work in the field of nursing. In the modern world, there is a significant change in the nursing field. There are many nursing educational degrees. Two of them are Baccalaureate degree and Associates degree in nursing. Both baccalaureate degree and associate degree in nursing required to pass NCLEX exam in order to work as a registered nurse.
NVT TASK 724.7.1-02-04, 7.2-06-08, 7.4-01-08 The First person I interviewed was a nurse practitioner I work under in a community based program for clients with psychiatric disorders. She answered the first question and explained that her educational background was an ADN nurse with a master’s in psychology. She also stated that she is co-leader of a team. In comparison to the second nurse I interviewed, a staff nurse working in the hospital who is also a recent graduate from a BSN program. She answered the question differently she answers the question as being a role model for nursing and patients by being an advocate for nursing.
Introduction Nursing literature has not fully covered the constructs of leadership and organizational culture as compared to other field like in business. The available materials major on the role of leadership especially of the chief nurse executive with little attention to nurse mangers and nursing leadership. Every effective organization has leaders who demonstrate transformational behaviors of leadership. The nursing managers have the role of creating and implementing a vision to be accomplished by the staff members. They are in charge of empowering the staff members with a vision which will bring positive changes to the health care organization through inside side and outside interaction.
Erickson named it “identity versus role confusion” in which identity shows sense of adult path while role confusion is the inability to form an adult identity, lacking any sense of a future adult path (Experiencing, 2013). I am certain that I am developing myself in a positive way by having a stable job right now as an RN while having better plans for the future. I am starting that plan by continuing my nursing education, trying to earn my Bachelor degree in Science of Nursing. The road to success is not going to be easy for me, but I do not expect it to be. I am able to maintain a balanced life in terms of my college education, work, religious obligations, house responsibilities, and personal life satisfaction.
My name is Vera Uzoma, a registered nurse. Nursing was not my first choice of career. I was a political science major hoping to become a lawyer, even though my mother had foreseen what I would be in the future because she said that I was caring , nurturing, loving and I was always
The person as defined in Henderson’s model is all encompassing; it applies to the sick, the well and the dying. Caring would include a genuine interaction with the patient, being a source of comfort and strength, and when the patient is well, the nurses must make sure to empower the patients to take care of themselves. Moreover, during that time, nurses functions were not identified programs for skills training and even education varied from school to school, to countries and even in hospitals .There were also legal barriers to how nurses should carry out their duties, which made the profession’s position in healthcare ambiguous and misunderstood. Nursing is primarily helping people in performing basic bodily functions that they are able to do if they are well and to provide this care and help in a limited time only (Henderson, 1991). It stressed more on what the nurses should do and who should they take care of and thus belongs to the reciprocal interaction world view category.
One of my areas of concern is evidence-based practice (EBP). This organization does not placed enough emphasis on EBP in home care considering the many risks that are involved in patients knowledge deficits in common areas like falls, preventing bed sores and the benefits that could be achieved with teaching them. EBP has been introduced to the United States years ago, however, many nurses have negative attitude towards research, in large part due to the manner in which they were taught research in their education program. In conclusion, I expect to gain a better understanding of this course, advance my knowledge skills, especially in EBP, demonstrate personal and professional integrity; concentrate on a more specific area of study. I enjoy researching topics of interest and making intellectual decisions.
