My philosophy of nursing is to provide my patients with a holistic treatment.  This means I do not just simply focus on whatever illnesses they may have, instead, I want to get to know my patients on personal level, to gain a better understanding of who they are.  Every person is a being composed of many complex and different parts.  Our cultural background, beliefs, experiences, and family/friends are all factors that affect who we are and more importantly, our health.  I believe that a deeper and more thorough understanding of my patients will help me in providing better care to them.
