Nursing Philosophy

My philosophy of nursing is to always see the happiness in my patients no matter their circumstance. I will strive to uphold the teachings that Florence Nightingale had for the profession. Nurses touch their patient’s families as well and I will treat them with the same respect.

The most important role I have as a nurse is being my patients advocate. I will always keep in mind the ethics needed to uphold confidentiality and legal protection. I will always strive to uphold those fundamental human rights to rest, activity, elimination, acceptance, safety, oxygenation, and nutrition.

I understand nurses are entrusted with the lives of others every day. I will always try to understand the needs of my patients including their physical, psychological, or emotional needs. My focus will be on implementing an efficient plan of care and reviewing it as needed. I will use all of my skills to maintain a safe environment and administer medications safely.

I will be culturally sensitive and respect all of my patient’s differences. My nursing practice will include appreciation and the beauty in different cultures, religions, within the human race. I will care for my patients with the same level of care regardless of their financial background. I will also work within the interdisciplinary team to provide the highest level of care needed for the patient.
