People trust and depend on nurses, and I will have the ability to win their trust and become their healer. My main focus will be caring for people, I agree with Nightingale’s theory of nursing; she focused on caring and helping people coping with their environment and situation (Potter, Perry, Stockert, & Hall, 2011, p. 44). Also, I highly agree with Peplau’s theory, this theory emphasizes the importance of patient and nurse interpersonal relationship and determines its importance for caring patient (Potter et al., 2011, p. 44). These two theory guides me to achieve my values and belief towards nursing which are altruism which is a act of selfless care and developing strong bond between my patient and me helps my patients become dependable and make me accountable and responsible towards them. My definition of nursing has not changed; it is basically caring for people and being able to connect
An Overview on My Personal Philosophy of Nursing The basis of this paper is to look into the personal nursing philosophy I have conceptualized while exploring my beliefs and values in my nursing career. I plan to convey why I choose this profession and what I believe the core of nursing is and what it should be. I believe the nature of nursing is rooted in commitment to public service and the undeniable desire to help those in need. Nursing is more than treating an illness; rather it is focused on delivering quality patient care that is individualized to the needs of each patient My philosophy of nursing incorporates the knowledge of medicine while combining it with relational, compassionate caring that respects the dignity of each patient. My philosophy is one that focuses on the empowerment each patient in the delivery of holistic nursing care.
I thoroughly believe that a person’s social, mental, and physical conditions all contribute to the healing process. Nightingale believed that you had to treat the patient as a whole, not just by analyzing data. When treating the patient, you have to look at the big picture. In order to meet the patient’s needs, you must observe and fully understand what kind of care will particularly meet that patient’s personalized needs. Florence Nightingale possessed moral authority, so firm because it was grounded
The first component of nursing practice is nursing. A person must be truly devoted to caring to choose nursing as a career. A nurse must have the heart, patience, and compassion to care for their patients. Nursing is a way of giving back to the community and society. It is a profession where you enjoy helping others.
According to Professor Draper ,getting to know the person behind the illness is the key principle of person centred nursing care.We as the care providers needs to listen diligently to our patients conditions, treat as a unique human being. Psychologist Carl Rogers, founder of person care centred define as " structure result from distributing pont of view and assertion of oneself ". It is a positive persuasion belief of our senses, ideas, and valuing of a person capabilities of what he/she can do. It is having assurance to see her actions as interactions made with confidence. Roger use these therapy in treating individual as a person to improve his quality of life.
Health Care Roles in Communication Krista Zieber HCA/230 Axia College 10/09/2011 Kelly Brazao Good healthcare communication is important for the caregiver and the patient. Communication is about perspective, how the patient perceives the caregiver and how the caregiver perceives the patient. Communication in healthcare is about treating the patient as a person not as a problem. If a patient perceives a caregiver as someone who cares about him or her and who understands his or her beliefs wither the beliefs are based on broader cultural views and practices or personal views he or she will have faith in the caregiver. The belief in the caregiver will encourage the patient follow the plan of care benefiting both patient and caregiver.
Reflective Journal Albert Johann Jacildo February 19, 2015 Critical Thinking for Nurses Ethics is an integral part of the foundation of nursing. According to the CNO, “Understanding and communicating beliefs and values helps nurses to prevent ethical conflicts and to work through them when they do occur”. My thoughts and ideas about nursing ethics has changed, as I gain more experience, it gives me a clearer view of the importance of having a professional code of ethics. Having a code of ethics makes explicit of my primary goals, values, and obligations of my profession. It is really imperative that I must consider the ethical aspects when formulating planning outcomes and goals for each of my clients.
Teamwork may be one of the most important professional characteristics in healthcare. Nurses act as advocates for the rights of their patients and are frequently involved in ethical issues and ethical decision-making processes. The professional nurse should be aware of and familiar with patient rights. The nurse must evaluate their own professional and personal values, reassessing them
Although this standard implies that family members should be considered a part of the health care team, HIPAA rules and regulations need to be followed as well. This standard also implies that Mr. E’s values and right to self determination should be honored. The nursing code of ethics that I feel applies to this case study is Provision 1, “The nurse, in all professional relationships, practices with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth, and the uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social or economic status, personal attributes, or the nature of health problems. (ANA, 2001) This code means to me that I, as the nurse, will do everything in my power to advocate for my patients right for self determination, to be open minded and value all
I felt the need to develop therapeutic relationships with service users so they felt they could put their trust in me that I was there to listen and talk to them not just care for them. Forster (2001) stated that, “In mental health nursing, a therapeutic relationship is defined as the relationship developed by two people essentially based on trust”. There is also a need of good interpersonal skills, communication and care skills when forming a therapeutic relationship. In order to develop a therapeutic relationship with a client, it is essential to identify the client needs, wishes, feelings, fears, strength and weaknesses which can interfere with understanding and providing care to the client (College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), 2004). Effective communication is an important skill in nursing practice as it is a tool to uncover service users’ needs and facilitate care.
