This week’s topic focused on caring and reflective practice in contemporary nursing. In your initial response, provide a definition of what person-centred care means to you. Describe how you will apply principles holistic nursing, cultural humility, and self-reflection in your future role as a nurse practitioner.
I understand person-centered care as care that takes into consideration the needs of the patients such as desire, values, family, and lifestyle and collaboratively working with the patient to develop the most appropriate interventions. The goal of this care is therefore to improve the health outcome of the patients and improve the experience that patients have of care and improve their satisfaction level.
Holistic nursing focuses on healing the patients as a whole. This means use of the nursing practices that focuses on the healing of the mind-body-spirit (Drury, & Hunter, 2016). Holistic nursing is critical as they are a range of factors that affect the healing process and contribute to wholeness of the patient. I would apply the concept of holistic nursing in my future role as a nurse practitioner to address the illness from its root.
