following are ideas to reflect on in the process of defining your own personal
beliefs, you shouldnt list and answer each one in your paper but include in a
short overall summary statement of your nursing philosophy. (#5
should only be one paragraph), just use the below points to help you
write your philosophy
What is your central belief about the individual
person? What makes up a person, who they are and how they got to where they
are?

What constitutes the environment? Does it include
elements both external and internal? Give examples. Find out what
internal/external environments are and how the person interacts with them. A
good source for this information is Chitty and Black Professional Nursing
Concepts and Challenges 6th edition, or Google search should give you
direction on this

How do the individual and the environment interact?
Think about how you view health. Chapter 5 of Finkelman or the Chitty book
mentioned above will give you a basic understanding but you will need to expand
upon this.

What is your view of health? What is health and how
is illness related to health? Is health a continuum with absolutes at either
end, is it a dichotomy: either good or bad? Is it a state that includes
illness? Note that disease and illness is not the same thing. One can have a
disease and not be ill, and one can be ill and not have a disease.

What is the central reason for the existence of
nursing? Why are we, as nurses, here? Dont think of this as a task based
definition. Why do you get up every day and go to work? How do we do what we do
every day??
Spend a little bit of time thinking about the questions
provided and you will do fine!?
Dont look for a right answer, this is your
personal philosophy/thoughts.?

A philosophy is very brief. Expect your answer for
Question 5 to be one paragraph.APA
means a title page, using headings, citations within narrative of all
references and a reference page. You do not need to include an abstract. Use of
first person is discouraged when writing in APA; an alternative to use includes
this author or one can determine… . See the APA sample paper as a guide!Scholarly
reference means a peer reviewed nursing journal article. More current nursing
literature is in the UWF online e-library where CINAHL or OVID can be searched.
Make it your first choice for searching the literature throughout the entire
program. However, Google Scholar can be searched for articles that meet this
criterion. Remember that sources should be dated less than 5-6 years old.You
may use a scholarly website as long as its e-address is a .gov; .edu.; .org
(i.e., no .com).Your
writing should be succinct and directly answer the question, following the
rubric as a guideline in both setting up your paper and ensuring you have
answered all items.Rubric
