Element of Value Base Care2The Nursing practice requires many qualities. It requires specialised skills, knowledge andhonesty, integrity. There are many aspects of nursing practice. It includes the type of client,different disease management etc. We should treat each patient equally without anydiscrimination. This relation is based on mutual respect and trust. It is a helping relationshipin which we should be sensitive to self and others. Providing physical, emotional, spiritualsupport to the patient and their family ( Anonson et al 2014).I believe thatcareis the fundamental part of the nursing value and it is also my personalvalue that I take care of. I feel that it is important to consider a patient as a whole rather thana particular part of him diseases. My culture has taught me that it is important to understand apatient’s need and the amount of care it requires because of the suffering (Hoeve et al 2014).Hence, I have developed the ability to understand the patient’s pain and concern because Ihave seen that a non-caring attitude makes the suffering of the patient worse.With this, I have learnt that caring is the term which should always be associated withnursing (Larkin, 2013). It has influenced the behaviour in me as a nurse and I have learnt thatit should be holistic and the actions should aim at creating and maintaining an environmentwhich will support healing. To support the nursing profession I have engaged myself in abroad range of activities when enacting professional roles.My seniors have taught me that there should be a deeper understanding of the term care.There are multiple levels of care. Caring comes with professional experience. It may have adifferent meaning for different nurses. The concept of care depends on different factors. But,for me, it depends on the amount of professional experience, the level of nursing education,professional values and how and where the nursing skills and concepts are being applied. Ihave seen that the caring concept is central to the nursing practice, it requires a great amountof discipline and dedication to follow, there should be intentional and conscious caring and

I have also learnt and appliedthat being a nurse means you have to be fully present in that moment and take proper care ofthe patient. It is all about having a trusting, helping and caring relationship with the patient.This should not be limited to the patient but also should be extended towards the other staffand most important the caregivers of the patient (Anstey, S., Powell, T., Coles, B., Hale, R.,& Gould, D. (2016). This has always given me a positive feeling in the patient and thecaregivers. Thus, caring is a very integral part of nursing. It is important for me to engagemyself in genuine care by learning through various experiences with the patients. This hascome with years of practice and dedication.For me, caring is an art which has to be studied but more than this, it is an attitude in lifewhich I follow for the patients and also the people around them. It is my duty to create ahealing environment. Researchers have proved that if a patient is given adequate care andtimely medication it can even have miraculous results. For terminally ill patients care is themost important thing they required. This may add few more months or years in their lives.Caring is the most important aspect of the nursing profession. As we know that in old agemany patients suffer from lack of care. A proper caring institution can give relief to old agepatient in many aspects (Gélinas, C., Fillion, L., Robitaille, M. A., & Truchon, M. (2012).The second value that I believe in is thecommunication.Communication is also veryimportant to me, my patients and also their relatives. I feel that by effective communication, acomfort level with the patient is developed by which patient conveys his pain, fear, sharesanxiety (Riley, J. B. (2015). Listening is a very important mode of communication. It requiresnursing skills and attention. By this, we can access the situation and problems of the patient.By being a good listener I can provide care at all levels of recovery.
