Develop a personal nursing philosophy statement
As an advanced practice provider, as you develop your practice, it will be important to create a personal nursing philosophy to guide your practice. This will continue to be honed and adapted to what your practice requires, however, the belief and values you identify will be a constant thread through your practice.
Upon completion of this assignment, you should be able to:
Develop a personal nursing philosophy statement.
Script a paper where you develop a personal nursing philosophy that will be refined throughout your clinical experiences, and will guide your development as a PMHNP – include your beliefs, assumptions and values.
Use APA formatting throughout the paper, citations/references should be included.
Appropriate references for this course and all future courses include ONLY PROFESSIONAL SOURCES. That is, consumer websites and sources are NOT acceptable references for assignments.
Not professional sources: WebMD, Mayo Clinic, HealthNet, MedicineCabinet.com, and so on, are consumer websites. They may have accurate information, but the information is not of the depth need ed for a provider.
Not professional sources: What students find trickier is that there are websites that have EBP guidelines and consumer information both. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), AHRQ, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and many other excellent websites have a tab or a section of the website for consumer information. Please access the professional portion of those website; they are excellent sources.
The consumer tab, however, is also a consumer website, not a professional source. If the section is not clearly label ed, you can be certain that the information is intend for consumers:
1) if it is written in the second person. Professional sources never say, “You should eat three servings of green leafy vegies per day”,
2) if readers are advise d to see their healthcare professional if they have certain symptoms. Professional sources cite and reference their information, as you do in your papers. These sources may be used as examples of patient education materials only, not as the source you are citing for epidemiology, diagnosis, treatments or other clinical information.
Acceptable professional sources:
Firstly,Textbooks from your graduate level courses.
Secondly, Epocrates and Lexicomp
Thirdly, Peer reviewed professional journal articles
Additionally, Articles from UpToDate online database.
The Red Book
Moreover, Evidence Based Practice Guidelines from professional associations such as American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American Academy of Family Practice (AAFP)
Also, Recommendations and guidelines for professionals from the CDC and other government agencies
World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for professionals
