To explore the metaparadigm concepts of nursing (i.e., nursing, person, environment, and health) from your personal perspective and explore personal and professional values.
Address all of the questions/criteria below and the other items outlined in the Grading Rubric to ensure your assignment meets all the criteria for this assignment.
Provide a brief, general discussion of your personal philosophy of nursing (such as its purpose, relevance and/or importance) and the purpose of the paper. Content must be paraphrased. Never copy/paste from a source even if you give credit.
Thoroughly describe each major concept in the metaparadigm (i.e., nursing, person, environment, and health) as they are incorporated within your own personal philosophy. You may use a nursing theorist from your book or other source as a guide.
Provide a brief and concise, clinical example of how each concept in the personal philosophy is demonstrated within your own nursing practice, i.e., how do you incorporate your beliefs about nursing, health, environment, and person into your nursing practice on a routine basis? For example, if you believe the person is composed of body/mind/spirit, describe the exact ways you apply that belief in your care.
Using the ‘Values Clarification Exercise’ on page 155 of the 7th edition of the Friberg text, select your top 3 values of importance to you and discuss how they affect your interactions with clients.
