"Be the change you wish to see in the world" - Gandhi
My professional philosophy is the driving force behind my career as a nurse. I believe it is an absolute privilege to make a difference in the world by caring for others. Every patient encounter is an opportunity to make an impact through competent, compassionate, and holistic care. It is my personal objective to see the person behind every patient. I need to utilize my critical thinking, communication, and assessments skills to identify not only physical needs, but also psychological, spiritual, and emotional needs. How can I make their life better than when I first met them?
As a nurse, I have the ability to empower my co-workers and patients to be active partners in striving to achieve excellence in healthcare. Every small act is contributing to a healthcare system we can be proud to represent. It may be helping a nurse colleague who is overwhelmed with tasks. It may be educating a patient on how to keep track of their medications. It may be guiding a nursing student through inserting their first urinary catheter. It may be working with my managers to improve the safety guidelines of a procedure. Together, I believe we can make a difference.
My short-term goal is to become an aesthetic nurse. I have come to realize my true passion is in understanding and applying the science of aesthetic nursing to make my patients feel their best . My long-term goal is to become an aesthetic NP and/or urgent care NP. I believe this will allow me to do what I am most passionate about and also be able to give back to the underserved populations in my community.
