As the demand for knowledge, technical savvy, compassion, and leadership increases in the field of nursing, it is important to determine what is fundamentally important to you in delivering the best nursing care. By reflecting on your values, morals, and what brought you to the profession originally, you should be able to articulate your own personal philosophy.
Develop your own nursing philosophy. Consider the following questions. From your viewpoint:
- What is nursing?
- What is the nature of human caring?
- What is the nature of nursing practice?
- What is the social purpose of nursing?
Explain how the philosophy you developed relates to your current or interested practice area.
Format your philosophy in a way that you feel adequately conveys your ideas.
