    • Have your teaching goals, methods, or strategies changed, and if so, how and why? Have your teaching priorities and/or perspectives changed or shifted, and if so, how and why?
    • Do you value different learning experiences, and if so, what are they and why?

Personal Nursing Philosophy

By (Name)



Nursing is an all-inclusive field oriented towards addressing patients' needs holistically while upholding compassion at its core; it aims at promoting wellness while averting sickness among patients and offering supportive care for both individuals under treatment. Evidence-based practice and continuous learning guide this approach, encompassing the core values of respect, integrity, empathy, and advocacy.

Person, environment, health, and nursing are integral components of my philosophy's bedrock as they are part of the four concepts that make up the nursing metaparadigm.

1. Person: A person receiving nursing care is viewed holistically: not only are their medical needs taken into account, but also their social and spiritual dimensions (Deliktas et al., 2019). Each individual is distinct and entitled to dignified and respectful treatment. Active involvement of individuals in decision-making regarding their health is acknowledged by nursing while recognizing their autonomy.

2. Environment: Environmental elements such as physical surroundings, social support systems, cultural beliefs, and socioeconomic conditions play a role in influencing one's well-being (Deliktas et al., 2019) by acknowledging the interrelatedness of individuals with their surroundings, nursing endeavours to create a caring and healing ambience for patients.

3. Health: Well-being includes physical, mental, and social aspects and is a constantly changing state known as health. The nursing field encompasses a holistic perspective regarding health, which includes preventing diseases and promoting wellness and maximum functionality (Bender, 2018). Acute and chronic condition management, health promotion, and disease prevention are part of it.

4. Nursing: Providing care to individuals, families, and communities defines the art and science of nursing. Interventions that cater to the distinct requirements of each individual are implemented through assessment, diagnosis, planning, and evaluation (Bender, 2018). The foundation of nursing lies in utilizing evidence-based practice, upholding ethical principles, and dedicating oneself to lifelong learning and professional growth.

For me, adding collaboration to the meta-paradigm of nursing is essential. Emphasizing interdisciplinary teamwork and partnerships with patients and their families is crucial in collaboration. Recognizing that providing quality care demands a collective effort, effective communication, and shared decision-making among healthcare professionals.

I would eliminate the concept of nursing if given the chance. Although nursing is undeniably crucial, it is already included in the more comprehensive meta-paradigm. By discarding the notion of nursing, one can adopt a broader perspective that underscores how all concepts are interrelated and advocates for comprehensive healthcare methods.

In conclusion, I believe in providing complete patient-centred care focusing on holistic treatments. I recommend adding collaboration to the nursing meta-paradigm in order to promote an interconnected and inclusive view of healthcare.
