Identify and describe concepts that demonstrate professionalism in nursing practice.

Professionalism in Nursing

Story telling and narratives are an effective way to gain an awareness or insight into personal knowing by considering the experiences of individuals. “Narrative helps us to hear the hearts of the persons who come to our care as well as helps us hear our own hearts.” (Nisker, 2004, p. 294).
This assignment requires you to explore concepts that exemplify professionalism in nursing practice by reading stories written by Tilda Shalof, a Registered Nurse. Below you will find a list of examples of some concepts that are considered part of professional nursing practice.
Responsibility Accountability Advocacy
Professional Caring Respect Privacy
Truthfulness Client well-being Knowledge
Leadership Therapeutic Nurse-Client Relationship Mutuality
Person-centered care
