My Nursing Theory
Like Theorist, Virginia Henderson, "I must in a sense, get inside the skin of each of my patients in order to know their needs." (Parker & Smith. 2010. p. 59).
Henderson's definition of nursing-"The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible." (Parker & Smith. 2010. p. 59).
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
Leo Buscaglia
autonomy- "personal freedom and self-determination--the right to choose what will happen to one's own person."

(Guido, 2010, p.8)
"the actions one takes should promote good." (Guido, 2010, p.8).
Mercy; clemency
be generous or helpful; goodwill.

The receiver of care, including all componets of culture; physical, spiritual social and psychological. The individual and the family.
All conditions, internal and external, circumstances and influences affecting the person.
"The degree of wellness or illness experienced by the person."
"Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations."


Evidence based-practice
"The goal of EBP is the integration of: (a) clinical expertise/expert opinion, (b) external scientific evidence, and (c) client/patient/caregiver perspectives to provide high-quality services reflecting the interests, values, needs, and choices of the individuals we serve."
