Not only do patients deserve holistic care from a mindful nurse, patients need an environment that optimizes the potential for well-being. As a nursing leader, the knowledge of what this environment entails and facilitating change in an organization will benefit the patient and the healthcare team. This paper will discuss the professional presence of nursing and the evolution of healthcare models over the years. I will present and discuss how my personality has shaped my nursing practice and patient care over the years. I will review my personal mindfulness practice plan and discuss the implications for my life and
For example, provision five states that a nurse must maintain competence (Martha D.M. Fowler, 2010). This means keeping my license and skills up to date. If and when I become certified in a specialty, I must maintain those skills that keep me competent in that specialty. I can accomplish this by going to classes, completing online continuing education courses or even attending rounds with physicians.
My nursing philosophy is much the same as my life philosophy. I follow the Golden Rule of treat others as you would want to be treated. Each patient and his or her family should be treated with dignity and respect. Also, as a nurse it is important to build trust with patients and their families. My nursing philosophy is continuously changing as I go through my career.

My knowledge and experiences that I have gained from various sociology, health, and cultural courses will greatly benefit me in the nursing field and in taking the greatest care for my patients. I truly believe that I will be someone who they can count on to focus on what is best for them and make the best decisions to improve their well-being. When you are a nurse you need to see the whole patient, not just their physical health. Whether it is to ease their pain, lessen their fear, comfort their sadness, support their wishes, or to simply be next to them to place a smile on their face, I will give them nothing but my best to contribute to their needs in those
The teacher may have genuinely been concerned with presenting too much information to students but through my classes at Sage, excessive stimuli is good of students with ADD because it gives them many things to focus on instead of causing behavioral problems. I want to have a classroom that has a lot of visuals and educational posters on the wall. Everything in my classroom will have a purpose and will be directly related to what I am teaching or be ongoing projects. I really liked Esme’s ideas and
The Effects of “To Err is Human” in Nursing Practice As we all know as nurses we are the glue in the area of patient safety, care and delivery in any healthcare setting. As nurses we are there from moment-to-moment at the patients bedside, we support the physicians’ diagnosis and we carry out the numerous orders set before us. Indeed, on a moment-to-moment basis, we are usually more aware of the patient safety issues in our hospital and other healthcare settings than the doctors are. In 1999 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report entitled To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System that exposed the number of errors that are made on a daily basis within a health care organization that are both reported and unreported (Wakefield, 2008). This report stated (Wakefield, 2008)” that 44,000 to 98,000 people die in U.S. hospitals each year as a result of medical errors, making them the 5th to 8th leading cause of death in the United States.
I talk to my patients and their families about balanced diets, physical activities, fresh air, and having close personal relationships are in regards to health and balance. According to Jordan mindfulness is “as an individual learning process characterized by a heightened awareness of the specific circumstances in a given situation”(2009, p. 168). Mindfulness allows me to deliver safe and effective care to my patients. Being mindful is vital to my nursing practice. “Today’s healthcare environment is turbulent, rapidly presenting nurses with stimuli, interruptions, and competing priorities.
During which I observed an Occupational Therapist that came regularly to see the residents at the care home. The therapist worked closely with the residents to enable them to lead full & satisfying lives as independent as possibly. I was impressed by the incredible amount of knowledge and skills that were required for occupational therapy. This gave me a great insight into the caring profession and has increased my motivation to work within it. In this experience, it enabled me to observe different health practitioners that were involved with the resident’s care.
This particular focus, as well as the balanced theoretical, practical and academic nature of the DNP program is especially attractive to me, given my range of experience and interests. My goals include successfully completing the DNP program and in turn acquiring a position in the clinical side and later specializing in one particular field of interest. I am also looking forward to work as a faculty so that I can give back to future students and anesthesia organizations what I have learned thus I can contribute to the next generation of anesthesia nurses by helping them become better practitioners with open minds and empathy for our changing and diverse patient
