Personal Statement

Personal Statement

You must be the change you wish to see in the world - Ghandi

I see myself as a “Social Change Agent.” My role as an educator, nurse and public health practitioner enables me to empower my students, colleagues, the University and community at large for achieving their goals as a competent practionier in healthcare or as an informed consumer achieving health literacy to live to their optimum level of wellness.

As a nurse educator in an academic setting it is the role of the nursing faculty to establish and develop competent novice nurses through the enhancement of the learning process by expanding their critical thinking and emotional intelligence to their utmost potential. I must also provide a safe setting to enhance learning and dialogue so the nursing student will feel comfortable to ask questions to gain clarification and to expand on the classroom or clinical setting discussions.

My overall goal direct to the nursing student whether in theory or clinical setting is to challenge that student to expand their critical thinking, and logic develop evidenced based practice and grasp the concepts of Community / Public Health Nursing through diagnoses and disease processes leading to Health Promotion & Disease Prevention.

I have developed my professional nursing practice and academic philosophy based of several nursing theorists: (1) Nightingale – Environmental Alteration Theory, (2) Henderson- Needs Theory (3) Leininger - Theory of Cultural Care, Diversity and Universality & (4) Orem – Self-Care Framework. For my practice in Public Health I utilize additional theorists: (1) Pender’s Health Promotion Model; The Health Belief Model; All of these nursing theories can be applied in the classroom as well as the patient care setting.
