My philosophy of nursing is to provide compassionate and therapeutic care for patients of various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. My goal is to educate my patients on health promoting activities to reduce health disparities. I believe that encompassing the patients mind, body, and soul into my practice will provide a more holistic experience. As a strong patient advocate, I feel that patients need to be encouraged to take charge of their own care as well. My driving force is to empower patients to achieve proficiency in self-care activities.
