My personal nursing philosophy

Philosophy

Nursing Philosophy

Nursing is an art and a science. It is an art because it transcends the physical level and cares for the patient holistically by caring for body, mind, spirit and soul. Kindness, compassion, empathy, connection, and vulnerability are soft skills that are as important in nursing as technical skills. It is a science because it requires a high level of technical expertise to provide optimal care that is evidence based. Nursing requires that one be non-judgmental while offering all of the essential information so the patient and their family can make an informed decision.

I learned a long time ago that there are only 2 emotions that can cause the greatest amount of damage, suffering and exquisite wholeness in our lives: fear and love. Every time we make a decision, make a judgement, think or act, we are doing it out of fear or love. I always want to choose love, but I fall into fear often. It is the price of being human.

I believe every day that we must do the things we think we cannot do. We can help that grieving woman even if you have never lost anyone. We can get that IV needle in and start the antibiotics that will save your patients life. We can work a 12-hour shift, go home, make dinner, do the laundry, watch some TV and go back the next day and do it all over again. How? Because we love helping others. It is our mission on this earth as nurses.

I believe that deep down people are inherently good. Sometimes you have to dig deep to find it, but it is there buried under wounds and neglect and abandonment. Which stems from fear. I want to always choose love even when a patient is spitting in my face, cursing me up one side and down the other and being ungrateful for the time I am taking to help him or her. Every day we have a chance for a new beginning, a chance to choose love and cast out fear.

I try to live by the following:
1. Make no judgements
2. Have no expectations.
3.Know that the unscheduled events of our lives are part of a Divine plan.
(Caroline Myss)

I believe that we are all one. We are the light in God's eyes. We all want to love and be loved.
A miracle is a shift in perception. A shift away from fear and into love.
Angels are just focused thoughts.
(Marianne Williamson)

I am grateful for the people who have taught me great and hard lessons. I am grateful that I have this opportunity to reach behind and help others.
