My Experience, Achievements, & Awards

The art of nursing has a different meaning to nearly everyone, both in and out of the field. It is my belief that the nurse holds the unique responsibility to serve as the patient advocate. The nurse must strive to meet each patient’s needs on an individual basis, while assuring that all patients receive the same quality of care, no matter who they are or what they believe. It is the responsibility of the nurse to provide an environment suitable to healing, encourage patients to be actively involved in their care, and to foster a trusting relationship that allows the patient to feel comfortable and secure in their care. Above all else, the nurse must learn to care for herself, because it is impossible to give the patients the level of care they deserve if the nurse herself is depleted.

My Nursing Philosophy

The art of nursing has a different meaning to nearly everyone, both in and out of the field. It is my belief that the nurse holds the unique responsibility to serve as the patient advocate. The nurse must strive to meet each patient’s needs on an individual basis, while assuring that all patients receive the same quality of care, no matter who they are or what they believe. It is the responsibility of the nurse to provide an environment suitable to healing, encourage patients to be actively involved in their care, and to foster a trusting relationship that allows the patient to feel comfortable and secure in their care. Above all else, the nurse must learn to care for herself, because it is impossible to give the patients the level of care they deserve if the nurse herself is depleted.

According to the American Nurses Association (2014), nursing can be defined as “the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.” However, nursing holds a distinctively different meaning to each individual. Throughout the rest of this paper I will discuss my own unique philosophy regarding what it means to be a nurse and how my interpretation influences the kind of care I give.

Long before nursing was a recognized profession fitting the description above, there were women who tended to the wounded and ill; among them was a woman named Florence Nightingale, who is known today as the founder of modern nursing (Arnstein, 1956). Nightingale believed that many factors influenced a patient’s ability to recover, including the environment and the mind-body connection, and that the nurse must advocate on behalf of the patient (Arnstein, 1956). She pointed out the importance of maintaining a quiet, noise-free, temperature controlled environment in which the patient also had fresh, clean air and a comfortable place to rest (Arnstein, 1956). Even more important, she helped implement the sanitary reform in 1855 which drastically improved the cleanliness of medical and surgical practices and led to the sterility of modern medicine and the decreased mortality rates that accompany it (Arnstein, 1956). In addition, she was one of the first to recognize the mind-body connection, which indicates that having positive attitude and optimistic spirit can play a major role in the recovery process (Arnstein, 1956).

All of these things have greatly influenced modern nursing and the medical field in general. I truly believe that the policies now in place that aim to provide sanitary and comfortable environments, support sterile techniques when applicable, and recognize the importance of nurturing the mind to aid in physical recovery are all extremely important aspects of being a nurse. However, of all the theories that Nightingale brought to the table, I believe the idea of advocating for the patient by fighting for equal health care regardless of faith or economic background, committing to personalization of care, and supporting the need for trained nurses and preventative health care through proper hygiene is by far the most important and the one I hold closest to my heart (Arnstein, 1956, pg. 542). While I will always strive to follow the policies that protect the first of her theories I mentioned, I will go above and beyond to support the notion that it is the nurse’s responsibility to advocate for her patients.

Another theorist with whom I share beliefs is Hildegard Peplau. Her Theory of Interpersonal Relations focused on the importance of the nurse-client relationship and the necessity for there to be a partnership between the two (Peplau, 1992). Peplau believed that neither the nurse nor the patient should play a passive role, which was extremely common prior to the introduction of her theory (Peplau, 1992). The patient more often than not sat back and received whatever treatments the nurse provided without taking part in either the decisions or the care itself (Peplau, 1992). The nurse, on the same hand, would passively act out whatever orders the doctor provided without bothering to double check their appropriateness or troubling to include the patient via explanation or assisted application (Peplau, 1992).

Peplau’s theory pushed nurses to create a shared experience with the patient (Peplau, 1992). She urged nurses to not only encourage the patient to get actively involved in their own health care, but also for the nurses themselves to become more actively involved in the care they provided (Peplau, 1992). I strongly agree with the idea that a shared involvement and an equal partnership increases the quality of care provided and also increases the satisfaction of both the patient and the nurse.

One other theorist has had a strong influence on my own personal nursing philosophy. That woman is Jean Watson, who developed Watson’s Caring Theory. Unlike Nightingale and Peplau, who were among the first to develop influential theories related to nursing, Watson’s theory did not come to light until the mid-to-late 1970s (Clarke, Watson & Brewer, 2009). She also emphasized the importance of the patient-nurse relationship, but instead of focusing on a mutual relationship, she concentrated on what the nurse could do to increase the quality of the relationship (Clarke et al., 2009). In addition, Watson also underlined the importance of caring for the self (Clarke et al., 2009). Rightly so, she highlighted the fact that a depleted nurse had a much more difficult time caring for her patients if she herself was in need of care (Clarke et al., 2009).

Watson’s emphasis on the nurse’s role in helping to develop a quality nurse-patient relationship builds upon Peplau’s belief that the nurse should strive for a partnership with the patient in their care. Watson developed a list she entitled the Ten Caritas Processes which aimed to help guide the nurse in fortifying and enhancing that relationship in very specific ways (Clarke et al., 2009). I believe that each and every item on the list holds a valuable and essential place in the role of a nurse. I also hold true the fact that no one, not even the most passionate nurse, can provide quality care if she is burnt out and exhausted. It is imperative that nurses learn to care for themselves so that they can in return care for their patients.

It is our job as nurses to protect our patients’ rights, to involve them in their own care, to provide a safe and healthy environment, and to build a mutual, trust-based relationship that will help facilitate healing. Physicians aim to treat the diseases that ail the patients, but it is the job of the nurse to treat the patient who just happens to be suffering from that illness. We must have the knowledge and the know-how to follow through on the plan of care as established by the physician, but must also have the compassion and the strength of heart to separate the patient from the disease. Each patient is unique and will respond to the disease, the treatment, and the care differently, so it is up to the nurse to find flexibility and to fight for individualized care.

The art of nursing has a different meaning to nearly everyone, both in and out of the field. It is my belief that the nurse holds the unique responsibility to serve as the patient advocate. The nurse must strive to meet each patient’s needs on an individual basis, while assuring that all patients receive the same quality of care, no matter who they are or what they believe. It is the responsibility of the nurse to provide an environment suitable to healing, encourage patients to be actively involved in their care, and to foster a trusting relationship that allows the patient to feel comfortable and secure in their care.
