150 word response to each post with one high level scholarly reference in APA format. Response to this Post One: Patients are unique in their way, and nursing is required to look at the patient in a holistic way, including physical, spiritual, psychological, and sociocultural. In all areas of nursing, in the home setting, the community setting, nursing homes, or hospitals, the goal should continue to remain the same, to prevent illness. Health and wellness happen in a holistic approach and are something we are missing in healthcare today. Jean Watson tells us that everyone has a story, and their story can become yours or your family members, so how we treat ourselves is how we will care for others (Watson, 2021). Nursing is a process of helping individual patients and families meet their care needs. Nurses need to look inside themselves and identify perceived culture and values to show the ability to understand others. Part of the nursing responsibilities is to be aware of different cultures and values and accomplish the nurse-patient relationship, built on trust, which begins with the first encounter and continues through the healing process. Unfortunately, many professionals, including myself, tend to focus on the problems. As a result, we harm those under our care, failing to appreciate the family's potential strengths, coping skills, and problem-solving capacity (Feeley & Gottlieb, 2018). Nurses must focus on the patient's needs and focus on them; watching verbal and non-verbal communication is crucial. The main focus in any nursing environment is to promote health. As we look at it in all patients, health is the condition of the body and the mind. Therefore, maintaining health is a lifestyle and one that needs to be followed. Feeley, N., & Gottlieb, L.N. (2018). Nursing approaches to working with family strengths and resources. Repsonse to this post Two: Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring aligns with my goal as a future nurse practitioner and as my current goal as a registered nurse. The caring science takes into consideration many things that are not seen by the human eye such as emotions coming from within a person. Caring for a person goes beyond caring for the physical aspects of patients. It goes deeper than that, it goes to the mindbodyspirit. The mindbodyspirit used in this article really stood out to me because this is something I take into consideration in my day to day life with every interaction I have with people (Caring Science & Theory, 2021). The practice in the theory that intrigued me the most was the transpersonal caring consciousness (Caring Science & Theory, 2021). This practice is focusing on consciousness and intentionality in the moment of caring for someone. Everything done in my practice is done with conscious intentionality, there must be a reason in my mind that a practice will be done. For example, a treatment plan will come with intention and care for the patient. The intention must also align with the patient’s current emotional situation. An example would be guiding my patient’s son to post-partum care of their father. I must keep in mind the son’s current feelings in the state and must work around that before I jump into all the paperwork that needs to be done. We must align with the ones being cared for, keeping in mind their current energy. Incorporating this into your practice will only further your ability to deal with humans on a emotional level.
