My Nursing Philosophy

  1. Evening my friends. I'm in a lot better mood tonight. The battery got replaced,no one mentioned me calling off on Saturday,and generally the world just looks plain better to me today. I just finished an assignment for my Leadership class in which we all have to write out what our nursing philosophy is. I want to share with you what my nursing philosophy is. My Nursing Philosophy By Theresa Pisarski. #1 Always treat all people with respect. #2 Mantain a calm,therapeutic milieu #3 Never be afraid to ask questions,when unsure of a procedure or unsafe situation. #4 Further your education. Never stop learning. #5 Talk to your patients. They will listen,and you will BOTH learn something. #6 Collaborate with your co-workers. They are wonderful resources to have. #7 Reach out to people. Even when you think you can't. #8 Strive for personal improvement everyday. #9 Attempt to see the WHOLE PERSON, not just one piece.#10 Don't be afraid to lean on people when you need to. #11 The patient is our first priority. #12 WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVERYDAY. Well, that's my nursing philososphy, please let me know what you think. I think it says a lot,but I might be a little biased. :chuckle Please let me know what you think. Love you all, Warrior Woman.

    the main part of my philosophy is that i treat my patients as i would want to be treated or how i would like my wife and kids treated. i am very friendly caring and compassionate with my patients. and they really appreciate it.

    I agree with all the points made in your philosophy, and yours too Mark_LD_RN. I once had a pt. who told me I dressed her leg like it was my leg. Best compliment I have ever had... Keep up the good work Warrior Woman..., and very glad today is a good day..

    Theresa.....I am so glad that you had a great day today! It is music to our ears to hear you sound perky! Keep on keeping on the way you are, and before you know it, you'll be kicking some real butt in the nursing field because you sound like you are going to make a truly great nurse....and real soon, too! :kiss

    I like your nursing philosophy a lot because I can tell you wrote it with passion from your heart.....and that's a major part of what being a nurse is all about. (((((((((hugs))))))))

    May your upcoming week be as great and wonderful for you as today was. :kiss

    Some more:
    Always take an occasional step back and make yourself look at the situation from another angle, you may just be missing something.

    Always talk to your patients like people, no matter how abnormally they may be behaving.
