Reflecting On Your Personal Philosophy of Nursing

Reflecting On Your Personal Philosophy of Nursing

So Take a moment and reflect on the Personal Philosophy of Nursing paper that you wrote in the very first RN BSN nursing course N3345 Transition to Professional Nursing.  Don’t worry if you didn’t save the paper or cannot find it.  Just think about how you approached nursing when you entered the RN BSN program.

Answer these three questions in a short essay style paper (2-3 pages) plus a cover page (see grading rubric for specifics).

1.  Describe how your 2, 5, and 10 year career plan may have changed since you started the RN BSN program based on  future trends and opportunities identified in your chosen area of focus (administration, education or clinical practice). Be sure to include at least 2 specific examples of how your behaviors, attitudes, and practices have changed and why.

2. How have you expanded or changed your personal philosophy of nursing since you started the RN BSN program? Include insights and at least 2 specific examples of how your behaviors, attitudes, and/or practices have changed regarding role of the professional nurse as a result of the RN BSN program.

3.  Would you describe yourself as a lifelong learner?  Why?

Note:  References are not necessary unless you cite someone else’s work or articles.  If there are citations in the paper then a reference page is necessary.  If references are not used, then a reference page is not necessary.
