Philosophy of Nursing Wilson Kathy Wilson Foundations of Nursing Philosophy Paper John Paschal April 18, 2008 Nursing—a Way of Life I believe that nursing encompasses every aspect of life. I believe that your philosophy of life is an integral part of your philosophy of nursing. I believe that the ethics that guide your life will also guide your nursing. I believe that the character you have forged within will be the foundation of your nursing practice. I believe that nursing is a unique genre, requiring knowledge of the medical arts as well as psychosocial sciences, skill in performing nursing duties, a willingness to serve, and an attitude of personal responsibility. Nursing encompasses the physical, emotional, and psychosocial care of clients. The nurse collaborates with other care givers to meet all these needs. I am Jewish. In Judaism, life—your own life or the life of another—is to be preserved at almost any cost. Even the commandments concerning the holiest of holy days can be broken if it is to save a life.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
