My Nursing Philosophy

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” 
― Charles Dickens

       Nursing is the art and science of caring for those who cannot care for themselves.  By making myself available to persons in need, I feel a sense of honor and gratitude through service.  I have a passion for sharing and receiving knowledge grounded in truth.  I believe every life offers value, and together we all constitute a singular human body. 


       True health is a value I hold in the highest regard.  To me, holistic health is a balance of nurturing the mind, body, and spirit through persistent mindfulness of self and others.  A nurse must practice authentic patience, empathy, kindness, diligence, and humility to be genuinely successful directly caring for others.  When expressing these admirable qualities to the fullest extent, I know nurses positively affect patients, coworkers, students, and communities to light the path for a more peaceful, sustainable future one interaction at a time.
