My personal nursing philosophy is geared toward caring. I personally believe that one cannot practice any kind of profession in the health care field without having a deep since of caring for their fellow human beings. Even as a little girl, I have always had a great respect for other people, most especially the older generation. I realize that everyone has fought their own personal battles in life and that we all deserve respect. I worked in a nursing home as a CNA for about two to two and half years and at the same time I helped my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother for four and half years. People use to tell me that working in a nursing home seemed like it would be a depressing job. I always thought of it as an opportunity instead of job. I realized while working there that not everyone cares about their patients and that caring should actually be a requirement for the job.
You never know what that patient has been through, but if your taking care of them; theyÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂve obviously been through something. My basic nursing philosophy is that I try to apply to everyone is that if I care about this patient, then I should do everything for this patient that I would do for my own family. If you care that much then everything else should fall into place, because IÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂm going to do everything in my power to see that theyÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂre taken care of because I care.
