Philosophy of Nursing
Nursing is a systematic, deliberate caring process with individuals, families, and communities in promoting health, reducing risk, preventing disease, managing illness, and supporting clients in all phases of living and dying. This process is based on a unique combination of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that incorporate the professional values of caring, respect, and a commitment to social justice. Inherent in this process are support for the dignity of the individual, advocacy for one’s right to self-determine care, and recognition of the uniqueness of each person as an individual, a family member, and a member of society. Nursing is practiced independently and collaboratively in the context of organizations and communities.
