My nursing mission is to use my knowledge, skills, and compassion to make a difference in the lives of the people I meet. To accomplish this goal, I provide compassionate holistic care to patients, families, and community in accordance with cultural and religious beliefs, inspire trust using authentic presence, employ best practices in nursing care, and provide equal care to all without biases or judgements.
My nursing philosophy mirrors some of the Caritas Nursing Theorist, Jean Watson. Nursing, as a profession, combines science with the art of caring and is a therapeutic healing partnership between nurse and patient. I provide skilled, competent, and empathetic care to my patients and their families to help foster, educate, and empower my patients toward their health goals. My personal philosophy is to put myself in the shoes of every person I meet and act accordingly. How would I want to be treated? What is important to me? How would I connect better with this person? In order to foster a therapeutic healing partnership, it requires trust, caring, honesty, vulnerability, and equanimity. This is a true partnership between the nurse and patient towards a common goal: the patient’s wellbeing.
