Personal Philosophy and Theoretical Concepts

Most clinical philosophers have done an outstanding job in the development of hypotheses that have been useful both in the nursing environment and in science. In this article, I will concentrate on Jane Watson's human care ideology which is one of the most important concepts of nursing.

Nursing Autobiography

I am a seasoned registered nurse specializing in the nursing faculty. I commenced my nursing career after graduating with a First Class Honors degree in medicine. I started my career in med surge floor specializing in taking care of patients who undergo surgeries. I developed incremental interest in med surge floor since undertaking my undergraduate studies. I have tremendous experience and skill working as a med surge and delivering maximum treatment with a generous and welcoming heart. This integrates keeping close attention of elderly and patients in surgery procedures. Currently, I work on a tele neuro floor. I have operated in this section for ten years. In my entire practice, I have given the first priority to patients and clients before my own ambitions (Sitzman, K., & Watson, J. 2018). I have acknowledged that patients need more care services and procedures rather than administering prescriptions and medications. With my experience, skills, capabilities and expertise it is meaningful in establishing the preferences of the patients, and treating them with the most sophisticated, efficient and scientific instigated techniques. Patients should be attended to with the latest medical technology to guarantee elevated health outcomes. Ultimately, I regard my career ethos and principles; it is a remarkable experience to handle patients. Honestly speaking, handling patients with a generous heart and mindset and fulfilling their preferences is a fruitful satisfaction I experience.

The four metaparadigms

Metaparadigm definitions constitute the critical factors in a domain that offer the guidelines how it should operate. Nursing metaparadigms have been categorized in four aspects namely person, nurse, health and environment (Butts, J. B., & Rich, K. L. 2017). These four principles are central to all philosophies of nursing and are insufficient without defining them and their importance to the principle. In addition, these four fundamental metaparadigms of nursing refer to a patient's clinical treatment and their health wellbeing is related to the four principles. Patient refers to the individual who attains nursing treatment and therapy. A person is someone who is whose oneness is precious and merits love support and consideration.

Health is known as the patient's level of healthy living or well-being. It is the equilibrium of body, intellect and conscience as a strong degree of bodily cognitive and cultural quality; and as a lack of infection elimination or an effort to eradicate it. The inner and outer circumstances that influence the patient are referred to as the client's environment or condition. This encompasses all beneficial or adverse aspects impacting the patient, the external atmosphere such as relatives, associates, and substantial others, and the atmosphere in which they go for their medical services. Nursing is the technical implementation of patient-related expertise, information and comprehension to their administration. It also encompasses understanding a nurse's responsibility and appropriately collaborating to provide high-quality offerings and support.

The theory chosen

I chose Jean Watson’s theory of care and its application in nursing. Watson’s theory addresses how nurses emulate care and therapy to patients. Caring is fundamental to nursing practice, and more than a quick clinical remedy, it encourages wellbeing. She maintains that the practice of care in nursing is fundamental to a comprehensive strategy to medical services.

Practice-Specific Concepts

Jane Watson's Human Care is one of the main nursing philosophies. It highlights questions about how nurses use their expertise in clinical outcomes. She stresses the convergence of scientific science and patient treatment in her school of thought. According to Watson's theory, nursing is engaged in promoting well-being, preventing illness therapy for the severely ill and ameliorating distress (Jean Watson, 2019). Nurses, as per her philosophy, should explain and practice care. Patient care facilitates development; a loving atmosphere welcomes a client as he or she is, and looks at what he or she may develop.

Name of first concept: Society

Society is a significant concept of the theory. Watson believes that treatment and nursing practices have occurred in all societies. The landscape of the activity reflects it as a unique means of communicating with its environments (Jean Watson, 2019). Medical practitioners must conform to social expectations and actions to offer care and therapy to patients. In my clinical practice, society is given first priority in terms of treatment and care services.

Name of second concept: Nursing

Nursing is described as the masterful execution of information and comprehension in the clinical setting for clinical outcomes. Jean describes nursing as social individual knowledge and perceptions of physical care facilitated by exchanges of skilled, subjective, scholarly, stylistic, and moral humane conditions. This definition is incorporated in my practice field in the implementation of evidence-based nursing care with optimum expertise used for a higher result.
