My Nursing Ethic

My Nursing Ethic

.PASSION: Why am I here?

I had a dream of improving human nature. I saw children and poor people suffer in hospital’s beds as a result of diseases and death. I began to develop a positive passion towards these vulnerable persons. Hence, I decided to make this dream come true by advancing my knowledge in nursing profession. I also realized that for passion to exist to all persons, I’m supposed to view people the same way God does. And to have passion, means to be devoted to excellence. Generally, in nursing field, we need a passion, a passion for people, and a passion for God. My inspiration originates from the love and kindness expressed by other nurses (PCBE, n.d).

MOTIVATION: What moves me to act?

I have a desire to help people and contribute towards the welfare of the society through healing and comforting those suffering due to ailments. Familiarity with ethics in nursing profession also assisted me to understand the demands available in nursing sector, such as the Hippocratic Oath. Other demands which include keeping patients’ secrets, safeguarding their lives among others. Finally, nursing is a dynamic and a challenging occupation, and this moves me to pursue the profession. It motivates me since it keeps on strengthening my faith. In all, the above are key motivating factors to me (PCBE, n.d)

 INSPIRATION: What keeps me in motion?

I saw many patients suffer when I was still young. I witnessed nurses running up and down trying to assist them. They were so great and caring, and at a time I even shaded tears on seeing how nurses cared about the patients. I was touched with what was happening. Henceforth, I develop a feeling of wanting to help someone’s life like the way those nurses did (PCBE, n.d).

LOYALTY: Whom do I serve?

Given the fact that my employer has given me duties to perform for that am loyal to, my practice and actions are under the surveillance of God. I must also respect the life of patients the information about their sickness, to offer my service for the benefits of the sick, and in summary, I will not go against my oath and covenant. It is this fact that keeps my integrity to serve and care for my patients to the best of my ability (PCBE, n.d)

In conclusion, respect and integrity are my key values in maintaining my ethical standards with nursing profession.
