Journal Reading (Nursing is Caring)

Nursing is Caring Doing For the Patient
(an excerpt from the article of Kristen M. Swanson)
Nursing as Informed Caring for the Well-Being of Others by Kristen M. Swanson (1993), Journal of Nursing Scholarship, vol. 5, no. 4. p. 356


Virginia Henderson captured the essence of doing for in her often quoted definition of nursing:


The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible.(Henderson, 1966).



Doing for, simply put, is doing for the other what they would do for themselves if it were at all possible. Doing for involves actions on the part of the nurse that are performed on behalf of the client's long term well-being. There is an efficaciousness to these actions, wherein the nurse acts ultimately to preserve the other's wholeness. Short-sighted, misplaced efficiency occurs when the actions are solely toward immediate preservation of the caregiver's time, energy or finances. Classic health care examples of not doing for include administering prematurely an episiotomy on behalf of the obstetrical care provider's over-booked schedule, quickly bathing and dressing an elderly client who is perfectly capable of slowly dressing herself or hastily hauling infants off to the newborn nursery versus leaving them in proximity to their mother's loving gaze, nurturing milk and bodily warmth.

Doing for includes comforting the other, anticipating their needs, performing competently and skillfully, protecting the other from undo harm and ultimately preserving the dignity of the one done for. Although it may appear that doing for actions are primarily psychomotor nursing ministrations, this is not always the case.

In the psychosocial realm of care, doing for generally involves not so much physical ministrations, per se, as the employment of interpersonal therapeutic communication skills as well as setting up opportunities, programs or systems that provide safe arenas within which people can bring about their own healing. When nurses set up groups for teen-age incest survivors, women who miscarry or bone marrow donors, they are doing for clients what they would do for themselves, if at all possible. Recently, a group of maternal-child public health nurses from the Seattle-King County area shared some beautiful examples of psychosocial doing for. They delineated levels of supportive assistance they perform on behalf of new mothers experiencing substance abuse problems. When mothers indicate the desire to "get clean," the nurses describe assessing how capable the woman is to act on her own behalf. If it is clear that the woman is in danger and that it took all the woman had within her to even voice a desire to "quit using." the nurse might dial the substance abuse hot line for her and hand her the phone (being aware that while the woman herself must talk, she needed that extra boost to access help). If, on the other hand, the woman states she is ready to quit and would like to know where to begin, the nurse might assess whether to offer the woman a narrow range of choices ("Here are pamphlets on two treatments programs within your city. I will check back tomorrow to see which one you called."); broad options ("Look in the yellow pages under "A" tor alcoholism. Call me Thursday morning and we can talk about your decisions."); or simply a wide open response, such as "How may I be of assistance to you?" In each case, the level of nurse directiveness is the result of balancing the nurse's recognition that the woman must act on her own behalf with an understanding of the demands, constraints, and resources offered by the woman's life and environment. Doing for in each of these public health nursing examples is a balancing act between doing for the woman what she would do for herself if she had the knowledge and/or resources to do so and facilitating the woman's ultimate desire to realize life long sobriety.

If there is one in the basic human needs that a person do not acquire, a nurse is there in fulfilling and in helping the patient to acquired the needs and her patient to become independent as possible.

the nurse will do everything for the wholeness of an individual, the nurse act as a substitute to the patient, a partner with the patieent, assisting the patient.

The nurse is also an indepedent practitioner because as long as the doctor is not working with her still the nurse must do her job, for they have different job.A nurse can also do what the doctor can,a nurse is always there for the needs of the patient helping them with love and care.

nursing is caring doing for the patient,if you read this line you can say that it was so simple.but to tell the truth , its not easy to do. the job of the nurse can do so much in the health of the patient. the nurse will do everything in the sake of the patient's health.they are always there ,giving their hand to help the patient to acquire their needs but sometimes if the patient can work with themselves ,the nurse teach them how to be independent. because not all times there is someone who are willing to help them.

Function of a nurse is not easy, that's my reaction when I read this article. Nurses are the one who assist their patient in able for them to to meet their basic needs which will lead to health. There are many instances that nurses help their patient not only in the problem of health and also in their personal life. Nurses are the one who create a good relationship between them and the patients. This article is very important for me as a nurse student which will give additional information in the caring of patients. Thank you again mam.

Being a nurse is a vital job in every other profession. Honestly, understanding and caring for the others is a hard situation for me because as a nurse we are responsible for their health, supplying them their needs. Considering that care is very essential in our field. And I believe that if there is no patient there is no nurse but not vice versa because " Nursing is Caring Doing for the Patient".

Nurse is for serving and giving care to the patients, and patient must cooperate to nurse to become healthy. The 14 Basic Human Needs helps nurse to improve and give more care to patients. This Basic Needs will lead us to become healthy and nurse will teach them how to care their selves because nurse are not always their at their side to serve them.

Virginia Henderson, emphasizes that to achieve wellness of the individual they must have the 14 Basic needs. And nurse should funtion as the provider for the patients dependense. Nurses should protect their paitent and help them to be independent once again.Nurses shoul comfort their patient and must interact with them properly.nurses must know what are the feelings of their patient. Communication is also the best way to achieve this.Nurses should tell the truth to their patient what ever it is even though it is positive or negative to the patient but they must do it in a proper way. About the 14 Basic Needs according to her you are healthy if you achieve all of this.

"Nursing is Caring" the title of the article practically speaks for itself...

Like we all know, Nursing is a profession intended to serve people in need of help, to give them medicine, food, and everything they need. Nurses are advocates of patients, therefore Nursing also includes protecting a patient, giving them safety and security.

After reading the article, I’ve realized that Nursing really is equivalent to Caring. By the word “caring” I mean understanding your patient, his or her feelings, her opinion or what he or she thinks. Nursing wouldn’t be nursing if you don’t understand your patient. Like the author said

“Nursing is Caring Doing For the Patient”

Kristen M. Swanson defines “Doing for” as act of doing for the others what others would do for themselves if possible. I think what she means by this is that there are some things that a patient would like to do for himself but because of some conditions he or she can’t do these things. For example, brushing your hair, a patient with two paralyzed arms will have no chance of doing this (obviously), as a nurse you should understand your patient and his needs, with a simple brush in of the hair you’ll demonstrate nursing (with concern to your patients hygiene) and at the same time caring (because of the comfort you you’ve brought your patient … emotionally).

Nursing really is Caring.

Nursing is Caring Doing for the Patient
This is a self explanatory journal.
When this journal was published it showed that Virginia Henderson had already captured the essence of doing for in her quotation about the definition of nursing.
According to her “The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible. (Henderson, 1966).
At first you as a reader say that it’s really simple but actually it’s not. The nurse really does everything for their patient. Like the known theorist, they try everything to help their patient to recover. Without knowledge a nurse or any person can’t help those who are in need. This also shows that the educational training of nursing is really important. It also gives information to us nursing student that’s why I like to thanks Mrs. Oloresisimo for putting it on our website. It is very helpful.

I agreed to Mam Oloresisimo’s story about the Priest in QMC that he is not only in demand whenever the patient is dying.. we also needed to let him communicate with the patient because the priest is needed most by the livings in order to be guided in a different doubted cases.

Nursing is caring. A profession that needed a martyr service in able to perform our obligation. Nursing is an enormous way of caring others not only our patient but also our love ones. We are the one who is responsible and concern for their condition with the doctor.

Also, I noticed that most college students chose a nursing course although it is expensive because we all know that course is in demand. We all know that we could earn a handful dollars someday after our degree. But I also noticed the dedicated Filipinos who chose to work here in Philippines than to work abroad and earn a lot of dollars. They love to stay and serve our own country. They love to apply Nursing as Caring here in our country.

For me, I chose nursing course because this is where my heart belongs and I LOVE taking care of others.

The function of the nurse is to assist the patient to recover from their sickness and/or to be independent in such way. The job of the nurse is quite hard in the sense that they are the one who is responsible for the health of their patients. The nurse must know the importance of caring in their career. It is the same that nurse = caring. After reading the article, I fully understand that the role of nurse to his patient is to take care of him and to help him to feel better in the sense that both of you will act as a partner to achieve your goal, to be healthy. “ Nursing is Caring Doing for Patients ” or simply nursing is caring and even without any explanation, you will understand what it really means.

As a nurse it is not only our duty to heal the person whose unhealthy but we need to share also and show to the client that their individual importance by showing them that we also care for them in order to survive any illness they are acquiring, it is not just simple medicine, it's a kind of medicine that comes from the heart and the best medicine of all.

Nursing is a job that needs a proper caring in order to achieve the patient wellness of health condition. It is a profession in which the nurse should do her/his best with love and care for the patient. The nurse is the one who is responsible for the life and wellness of the patient. She is the guide and practice of the patient in order that the patient to become independent. A shadow that gives a direction to the patient to look at the bright side of being ill or sick. As I read the journal, it helped me to enlighten up my mind on the important roles of being a nurse. For me, being a nurse is a very hard job. It needs patience and understanding especially to the patient who suffer a dangerous sickness.

The 14 components of basic nursing care are applicable for all of us. It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves in order to have a good health condition. Many says that “Health is Wealth” and I believe that every sick person should learn how to take care of themselves to satisfy and achieve the proper basic needs of human being.

Nursing is caring, a simple sentence yet hard to understand. Want to know why it's hard to understand?!.,,We all know that nursing is caring and everyone knows it. But behind that phrase is a person who chose to serve others even in their worst part, even if they can't take good care of their love ones because of their duty in the hospital, center, etc. Of course, we know that nurses' role is difficult because they need to protect their patients from harm. They need to help their patients so that they can met their needs. And lastly, they must do everything for their patient to become healthy. Nurses give strength and hope, love and concern for their patient. But of course, despite of hardships and challenges they face, they became part of one's life and that is the greatest thing a nurse could ever wish for.

Guiding the patients the direction to a bright sight whenever they're sick or not, nurses really help the patients to develop themselves. Taking care is the best way to show concern to the patient. The nurse is the one who assists the patient not only in helping them to cure their illness but also to have good relationship between nurse and patient.

Most of us the 14 basic needs is applicable in everyday living.The nurse has the responsibility to take care of the patient to have good health condition.

Being a nurse is not a joke or just a job that every end of the month you will get your salary, rather it is a big responsibility that every nurse carries because they hold the life of every patient and they help them to achieve health. A nurse must be knowledgeable in different aspects for him to give proper care to the patient at any situations. As a substitute for the patient, a nurse serves as the knowledge of the patient. As a helper, the nurse helps the patient to obtain their basic needs and as partners with the patient they formulate the care plan together. That’s why being a nurse is no laughing matter it’s a serious job giving serious care. Thank you very much ma’am for posting this journal I’ve learned a lot from it.

Being a nurse is difficult,yet it can give you a sense of satisfaction... A feeling of joy for giving your time and care for those in need..
It is not just a profession,but a commitment towards a great deed.
Nursing is a way of attending the needs of patients and helping them to become independent. Nursing should not only focus on physical aspect but also in the spiritual being of a person...

nursing is a science and an art of rendering care not to make a person depend on the nurse' responsibility... more importantly, nursing care according to virginia henderson is the channel on how to teach the patients to gain and manipulate their independence as they consequently achieve their state of well-being...

Nursing is Caring Doing For the Patients...
This phrase got my attention concerning my chosen profession.

Virginia Henderson clearly defined the function of a nurse that is to assist the individual, sick or well. Nurses should take care all of their patients and act on their behalf. Henderson put a great emphasis in caring of patients because according to her, it must include people from all walks of life, from the well to the sick and from the newborn to the dying. This care given by nurses should result in rapid recovery and a gain of independence of the patient.

In this case, the nurse should be well-educated and have enough knowledge to care and cure their illed patients. Nurses must know the whole needs of their patients so that they will be able to cure and solve their patient's sickness...

For me, this theory also have empathy in a sense that you act as a nurse on behalf of your patient and both of you should interrelate to each other so that you will achieve the desired wellness of the patient.

Thus, time will come in some cases that nurses and the patient are one, or the nurse acts as a substitute for the lackness of his patient...
And in this time, the 14 Basic Human Needs is all you need...

this statement prove that nursing is taking good care of someone at there weakest moment. it is not all about giving the medicine checking the BP, rather it is all about being at the patient side when they eally need someone, it is loving them and making them realize that life is still worth living despite of every painful crash she/he is going to went through.

Nurses have so many roles.In those roles they always become part of their patients life.Being part of their of it,they consider them as their family that they give their love and care into them.
Nurses always consider their patient's condition.
As a nurse,they give their patients all their need ,at the same time teaching them to become independent...as a mother guiding her child how to walk.
While the patient was on the hospital,the nurse was responsible for him,but at the time that the patient steps out of the hospital,their connection will end and at that time,the patient should be independent and responsible enough to take care of his self.

After i have read this article about Nursing is Caring, i have realized that a job of an ordinary nurse is en extraordinary. In short, it is not easy. A nurse is another body of the patient in order for them to be guided and to be cared by people(nurses) that they needed. It is not easy to care a person who is a stranger to you. And the nurses are also the one who guide the patient to meet their basic needs. A nurse should acquire the personality of being patient and understanding. It is very hard job to be a nurse but in spite of that, they choose to care for other people and bring them to their wellness.

"I care for my job sir! I care for you.."

This is the famous tag line quoted by Sharon Cuneta in her film 'Caregiver'. This line is an instant explanation of the article title "Nursing is Caring". A nurse is the one who help the patient to regain health and independence. She's the one who will provide the needs, love and care for the patient. The role of the nurse is not as easy as what many thinks. A nurse can give her 100% care for her patient but not unto her love ones. It is due to her lack of time but that is understandable.

In this journal reading, we applied the Henderson’s Definition of Nursing in different nursing practice. As a nurse, we are responsible to the speedy recovery of the patient. In the recovery of the patient, we should assist the patient in such a way that he gains independence.

The nurse should have enough knowledge o resources to facilitate the patient’s needs or questions. Henderson’s Theory also focuses on decision-making where nurses can decide by their own in the times that physician is not around.

Being a nurse is a very difficult job. A nurse must be knowledgeable enough in different aspects for every unexpected situation that will happen. It is not only for giving of care for the patient but also for being a helper. The nurse must teach his patient how to become an independent human being because not all the time there will be a nurse at their side who will care for them.

" a nurse should be a nurse", a simple quote but has a broad meaning.
a nurse should render care for the patient and the nurse should have the qualities which can achieve the nursing care plan goals.

through the 14 basic human needs of virginia henderson, a nurse can assess a patient and helps in macing a nursing care plan. it satisfies the patients need. after the evaluation, the nursing care plan has been fulfilled.

"Nursing is Caring" is such very thorny statement which means that nursing function and role is to assist the individual to alleviate the pain he feels and to provide the right care to sustain a healthy existence. Nurses should act like a responsible care provider. It also means that you should have empathy for that individual to show the nurse enthusiasm to lessen the pain that the patient feels and to train him to be independent.
Thank you and God bless…hehehe.,

Good evening Ma'am!

After reading the article about the journal of Virginia Henderson, I learned many things. I learned how to take good care of the patient, I learned how to give proper care and etc,.

I learned that the nurse will do everything for the Wholeness of an individual meaning that the urse will offer his/her life for the paient just to give them the proper care they need.

I learned that the nurse and the patient will be partner. The nurse will act as the substitute to the patient.

I learned that the nuirse will always at tyhe side of the patient to give care and love for them and to help them to recover with the help of showing love to them.

..thanks mam Dani for giving us the chance to know and understand the meaning of care by the help of this article.

Nursing is Caring a very inspiring words that a nurse must possess. Sometimes people think that providing a nursing care is such an easy one but no it is not because as a nurse you are responsible to the health and conditions of your patient. And being a nurse you need to render a qualitative nursing care for the easy recovery of the patient or for the patient to meet their essential needs. And when we meet their needs and the patient learn from us we are proudly to say that we render an effective and effiecient nursing care.

Thanks maam.

caring is just a simple word with lots of meaning.as henderson said, "nurses as the direct care giver must help the patient to become independent", nurses must supply/support the needs of the patient, but she/ he must also know to limit her job. after giving the patient's needs, the nurse must also teach them on how to take good care of themselves(independently).and to achieved this, nurse and patient must have coordination and enough cooperation.

',.The journal entitled "Nursing is Caring" voiced out all the essence of being a nurse.

We as a nurse, have a great role in everyone's condition especially to the condition of those who are in need. Those who are the best recipient of our care. We are really responsible for their wellness. The two words "Doing For" reflects our great part in "Taking Care Of". Doing for the patient must always be in our mind.

We act as their other hand if their hand are in damage.
We act as their other leg if their leg is broken.
We act as their support if they can't do things on their own.

If they are in their weakest moment, our "caring" is their, we care for them in a way that we protect them and we save them.

Nursing is CARING..when we say nursing..all comes to our mind is how you care for that person...it is said that..
The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible...
Doing for includes comforting the other, anticipating their needs, performing competently and skillfully, protecting the other from undo harm and ultimately preserving the dignity of the one done for.
The nurse gives care to the patient..give what he or she needs..and love and teaches how to ba an independent ..

This journal shows me the importance of a nurse that on behalf of the patient the nurse must help and assist the patient or perform her task in order for the patient to gain independence. A nurse must be a good teacher must know and give the needs of the patient and when this needs are meet it shows that a good application in nursing practice is happen. So the nurse must have a wide understanding in giving care to the patient.

I agree that the unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well. From the title itself of this journal, nursing is caring doing for the patient, we can say that nursing profession is all about the concern of a nurse in the well-being of a person. The duty of a nurse is not actually easy. But the nurse will do everything to take good care of a patient. A nurse has open hands, ready to be of help everytime someone needed. But a nurse should know the limitations. She should teach the patient to be independent enough to take care of himself because time will come that there will be no nurse to take care of him anymore.

1. Breathing normally
2. Eating and drinking adequately
3. Eliminating body wastes
4. Moving and maintaining a desirable position
5. Sleeping and resting
6. Selecting suitable clothes
7. Maintaining body temperature… by adjusting cothing and modifying the environment
8. Keeping the body clean and well-groomed.
9. Avoiding dangers in the environment and avoiding injuring others
10. Communicating with others in expressing emotions, needs, fears, or opinions
11. Worshipping according to one’s faith
12. Working in such a way that one feels a sense of accomplishment
13. Playing or participating in various forms of recreation
14. Learning, discovering, or satisfying the curiosity that leads to normal development and health.
are indeed useful in application to nursing.

Those 14 Basic Human Needs are ways on preventing illness and promoting a healthy well-being as a whole.

"Doing", a word that simply means an action in present tense but when added with the preposition "for", it may mean differently. "Doing for" means an action being done to someone. Sometimes, people think it's just a simple action that others do because they have to do it. But nursing defines it significantly- doing for, caring for, helping for/ to the patient who is in need. I am not "literally" saying that nursing is like what superman do, using his strength to save and help people. "Metaphorically", it is yes!.. nursing is saving and helping patients using one's strength and even knowledge. That's why nurses are to be called heroes/heroines...

An understanding or study about meanings, be it the kinds of words, figures of speech, etc., like what we do in our English or Filipino subjects may help us to define the simple words yet with a "mean"ingful "mean"ing.

Being a nurse is not a joke. In fact, it's really hard to be one. They also have many sacrifices. Specially with thier families, their time is limited and sometimes it affects thier relations. A nurse helps the patient to lessen their hard feelings. The nurse is the one that is communicating with the patients in order for them to share thier feelings. Nurse don't just give advices but they also care for their patients. nurses are doing everything they can so that the patient will get well bery soon. Nursing is really caring. Without care, patients are so impossible to get well. Nurses also share some experiences to their patients to lessen the hard feelings. Nurses care for their patients. Care, not as an obligation but as personal choice and will too.

this article is very informative and very helpful to us..

this article can guide us in searching for the true essence and role of nurses in our society.

According to this article, nurses must provide care for all walks of life..not just for the sick but also to those who are well because everyone needs care.

Nurses must also show care and act as a surrogate mother to those patients who can't take care of themselves but they must not forget to teach and help their clients to regain independence.


This article is a great help to us who are aspiring to become nurses someday. This will serve as our guide in clinical practice.

A nursing is more than just a proffesion where you are required to help the patient recover physically, but also included are all the aspects of a man. And in order to achieve that, a nurse must be able to endure, restore, and manipulate all the things that he will experience during the time he is exposed to the patient. This means total submission to the will and power of the patient in order to make him feel better. Empathy is the primary concern of the nurse. He must have this quality to withstand whatever the situation may bring. He must put himself in the shoes of the patient to help him recover thouroughly.

kaychie said...

"nursing is caring", this is the essence of nursing. it aims to promote the welfare of the patients so they can live healthy lives. nurses are subjected to provide the patients what they need so they can function fully. the nurse should be able to secure the health of the patient. Henderson emphasized that in order to achieve wellness one must posses the 14 baasic components. implementing the plan of care needs alot of efforts and nurses should be able to perform this no matter what. it can be tiring but nurses are looking forward to the health of the patient, they see these things as self accomplishments for they have touched the lives of their patients and had been part of it.

Nursing is caring, a phrase that I think is uneasily to understand to those who does not have any passion for nursing. Simply,nursing is not only a profession that nursing student like me must profound academically but let my heart feel and giving what I have to those persons needs my caring.

Virgina Henderson wants us to know that a nurse is the vicarious of his or her patient.

"Nursing i Caring Doing for that Patient," Nursing care is one of the most critical task in the medical practice because, nurses held the life or death situations of the clients also known as the patients. They were the ones who take the 90% in caring their patients especially when the clients parents or guardians are not arround to guide, support and help them in doing some tasks that they cannot perform well without the help of another person, because people that are sick needs to depent on to the persons who's capable in doing something that they cannot do.

Virginia Henderson defines nursing as the unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery or to peaceful death that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will, or knowledge.

This introductory statement briefly explains the main role of a nurse in the life of her patients. At first it may look as an easy job for someone, but if we look behind the lines we can see an individual who acts with all her heart. She has this burning passion for helping those in need. She cares whole-heartedly for those people she barely knows. That’s a true nurse, a nurse not only by profession but by heart. Virginia Henderson clearly showed us a good example of what nurses should do for the sake of the patient incapable of helping themselves.

prances said...

"Nursing is Caring" as the title implies it, nurses must give love and care for their patients which is in fact not an easy job. It requires so much understanding in the part of the nurse and a lot of adaptation for the patient. In order for the individual to recover easily from illness an aid of the nurse is needed. But not at all times, because the patient must also learn how to be independent for himself. Nurses are not always there to help them.

"Doing For" as defined by Kristen M. Swanson, "is doing for the other what they would do for themselves if it were at all possible".
Based on my own understanding, it means that what you can do when you are in a healthy state is what you want to share with others who are sacrificing in different kind of illness. But as the saying "you cannot give what you don't have" contradicts with it because it is hard to share to others what you don't usually have. As a nurse you should give what it takes for the fast recovery of an individual.

In my understanding in “nursing is caring” I immediately thought of 'caring' meaning just giving the needs of the patient, helping the patient to recover faster, attending to his or her incapabilities and giving him or her the comfort as the patient could be but as I read the journal I thought how can a nurse do the job without this important factor that may help the nurse to be more effective nurse to the patient. “Love” this includes the love of life, love of patient, job, health, and other factors that help you to be the best of what you can be as a nurse.

It is the role of the nurse to satisfy all the needs of patients in regards to help the clients to be healthy making a patient whole.
Being a nurse takes sacrifice and patience in order to accomplish his tasks. He/she must know how to interact with patients by means of holistic approach.Through communication, a nurse would know the patients feelings. A nurse must have a wide set of knowledge because he/she must answer every single questions of a client acquiring a role as an educator. In seeking independence of the patient, it takes the whole effort of the nurse to guide his steps to success. If a client is independent enough to stand on his own feet then a nurse must learn to let go.

Based on Virginia Henderson “you can provide care, if you can provide needs”…And the journal put a great emphasis on the way that a nurse must render care to her patient providing that she can help the patient meet his needs and with the nurse responsibility to give nursing care in a right way. The nurses must do her nursing care to the patient in a way like what they are doing for themselves.

What I’ve learned from the journal is that a nurse must function not just because of the benefit she gains in her job instead she must function well according to her different roles as a nurse to render nursing to improve patient’s health condition considering their capabilities which the patients can act in their own behalf.

“Nursing is Caring”

A bond forms when I am helping people who cannot help themselves... a bond of spoken and unspoken gratitude...the knowledge that I just touched a life. Nursing is so much deeper than just helping. It's caring!

I chose nursing because of the vast career choices and caring for others, teaching patients and families, advocating for the most vulnerable of patients, and building relationships with patients, families, and other professionals. For me, the ability to be present with patients and families at the best and the worst of times is what is important to me. Sometimes you don't have to say a word. Just being there-knowing that it is best not to say anything-listening, holding a patient's hand, crying and laughing and supporting a family member is what is most meaningful to me.

Good Morning Mam Oloresisimo

Virginia Henderson clearly defined the function of a nurse that is to assist the individual, sick or well. Nurses should take care all of their patients and act on their behalf. Henderson put a great emphasis in caring of patients because according to her, it must include people from all walks of life, from the well to the sick and from the newborn to the dying. This care given by nurses should result in rapid recovery and a gain of independence of the patient.According to this article, nurses must provide care for all walks of life..not just for the sick but also to those who are well because everyone needs care.

In this case, the nurse should be well-educated and have enough knowledge to care and cure their illed patients. Nurses must know the whole needs of their patients so that they will be able to cure and solve their patient's sickness.For me, this theory also have empathy in a sense that you act as a nurse on behalf of your patient and both of you should interrelate to each other so that you will achieve the desired wellness of the patient.
Thus, time will come in some cases that nurses and the patient are one, or the nurse acts as a substitute for the lackness of his patient.And in this time, the 14 Basic Human Needs is all you need...

..after reading this I realized that being a nurse is a very vital and inspiring job.We might help the patient not only physically but also emotionally and also with their personal problem in life.We can be their guidance counselor at the same time.The nurse is also an indepedent practitioner because as long as the doctor is not working with her still the nurse must do her job, for they have different job.A nurse can also do what the doctor can,a nurse is always there for the needs of the patient helping them with care,love and patience.We must all attain the 14 basic needs.

Nursing is caring,some people thinks that caring for someone is an easy job but it is not.The nurse must be strong and put her heart on what she was doing.
Nursing is an act of doing for someone.To make the patint get well and alleviate her suffering.
The nurse makes a big part on the life of the patient.Not only when the nurse was caring physically,but also emotionally.

nursing is caring..

a job of a nurse is not only to assist the patient..but to gave them proper caring in order them to recover easily..
..the nurses not only care because it is their job but it is that they care for them no matter what..and they understand the feeling of the patient when they were in that condition..and also gave love everytime the nurses show the care for them!!
they gave a positive advise for the patient that enable the patient to work independently..

She asserted that nurses function independently from the physician,but they must promote the treatment plan prescribed by the physician. Although part of the health care team,the nurse must act independently but in coordination with the therapeutic plan develop by the team.

In the role of the nurse as a health care provider the nurse must be knowledgeable in both biological social science and must have the ability to asses basic human needs.Henderson's definition of nursing was considered as the "signature" of the profession.

rose anne said...

Henderson's approach focuses in such a way that every step of Nursing Process, it play a very important role in assessing a individual to be well and experience good health. And she also tells that Nursing Process is like a problem-solving that provides answer to the patient's question in life and provide his her basic needs...

In patient caring there are phases that the nurse should follow to became an effective and efficient person to render care...

According to Henderson' theory:

true nurses are one who have potentials in the field of nursing, where they work uniquely. they are the partners of the patients, who render a full care and willing to address client's needs. Based on her theory, Nurse-patient relationship serve as an important role which assures the wellness of the patient. In this type of relation, nurses are subjected. They are essential for the patient to attain the health they've looking for. A concrete and proper care will develop, which assures the satisfying health for the patients.

Nursing is a job that needs a proper caring in order to achieve the patient wellness of health condition. It is a profession in which the nurse should do her/his best with love and care for the patient. The nurse is the one who is responsible for the life and wellness of the patient. She is the guide and practice of the patient in order that the patient to become independent. A shadow that gives a direction to the patient to look at the bright side of being ill or sick. As I read the journal, it helped me to enlighten up my mind on the important roles of being a nurse. For me, being a nurse is a very hard job. It needs patience and understanding especially to the patient who suffer a dangerous sickness.

For me, this theory also have empathy in a sense that you act as a nurse on behalf of your patient and both of you should interrelate to each other so that you will achieve the desired wellness of the patient.

Thus, time will come in some cases that nurses and the patient are one, or the nurse acts as a substitute for the lackness of his patient...
And in this time, the 14 Basic Human Needs is all you need...

And as rapidly as possible he/she will help them to become independence. The nurse's also gave idea or knowledge to the patient and help them to meet their goals. Because nurses can be a helper, substitute and partner to the patient.

It is stated that we must able the patient to be independent in caring of her or his self. Well do you think its easy? NO!!! it is very hard for the nurse to meke the patient independent to you if the patient dont have any cooperation, so obbiously not only one problen you will encounter but two.

All of the 14 basic human needs of every patient is or has been given to fulfill their satisfaction. Every nurses has or have to take or do their part as a nurse to the patient. Every nurses acts as a substitute to the patient to know what every person needs. Being a partner and an assistant helps every patient to recover from the tragedy or sickness that the patient have.

Nurses work independently and they work harmoniously and patience within the pressure that they feel. In this article it is said to be that the nurses and the patient communicate with each other. And it is said to be that the work of a nurse is not that easy. Being a nurse function as one of the hardest part or role.

once you choose nursing as your career in life it means that we should give care not only in words but most especially through our actions towards our patient.rendering care annngd giving to them what are their necessities are our first major role. we should act in behalf of them and do it whole heartedly.caring to anybody who you do not know is hard to do but as nurse we should treat them in behalf of ourselves.

nursing as caring doesnt necessary mean that we shooould always check their physical condition but one of our roles is giving them sufficient and warm love and introducing to thhem that behind those painful illnesses, "life is worth living for."

The role of the nurse is really great and aspiring because they stand as the patient’s shoulder. They are the one who help the patient in all things that he/she can’t do. The nurse plays as a substitute for the patient because in times of illness, the nurse serves as the substitute to what the patient lacks like knowledge, will and strength to make him complete. The nurse also serves as a helper to the patient when they can’t fully met their basic needs. The nurse focuses her attention in assisting the patient meet these needs to be able to regain independence. The patient needs a partner in their recovery and that is also the role of the nurse. The nurse can empower the patient to make effective decisions regarding his care plans. As the relationship goes by, they see each other as a partner who’s having the same goals. NURSING means “to nourish” or “to care” and that is the best thing that we could thank for because they are here, to serve the sick people.

"Nursing is Caring."

Indeed, Nursing really is the "caring-profession."

Yes, we can say that is hard, because you really need a lot of empathy and sympathy for taking good care of a person whom you do not even know.

And it requires a heart for affection to others but avoiding too much attachment.

But these are not reasons for nursing aspirants, like me, to continue to be one someday.

Nursing is Caring Doing for the Patient. This journal or this article explains the function of the nurse. And the function of the nurse is to assist an individual, whether he or she is sick or well. It tells the part of a nurse to his patient on how he would handle and take good care of the patient until he reached his independence. It involves also the things that public health nursing do on how he act in front of the woman if the woman have enough knowledge to do for herself. This involves that a patient must reached his independency in order to attain the goal which is to get well.

Based on what I`ve understand on the journal that I`ve just read, nurses should give the proper care and assistance that will not spoil the patient. Patients must learn independence. It is not necessary for the nurses to do such things which the patients can do by themselves alone. The nurses should learn to respect the patient`s independence because that`s what it should be. PAtients must not depend on the nurses. They must learn to move by themselves independently for not all the times there would be someone to assist them.

That`s what I`ve acquired from my reading. Thanks ma`am..

This article gives impression to the nurses and nursing profession. This explained the real essence of the nurses. NOt only the essence of caring but also the concern, love, hope, patience and passion rendered to a patient.


If you are going to ask a nursing student on why he/she enter the nursing profession and why he/she choose BSN, obviously, they will answer "to serve..to fulfill the needs of an ill person..to recognized as in the passion or as in the profession of caring.."Although today's nurses where not being recognized ang not give much opportunities. The important kthing is that they give their hand to the person in need and extend their help. That is the real passion and i admire those person.

"Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." It is a quote in the novel that i have read. Which tells that having lack of opportunities and failure is always the beginning. The road to success is always under construction.

"Nursing is Caring"

The title speaks for itself. This article illustrates what we nurses should be and should do, as in our profession. Nursing is said to be a science and at the same time it is an art. An art of caring. When asked what the primary duty of a nurse is...one single word comes into our minds..CARE/CARING.

I'm delighted upon reading this article because it makes me become more interested in nursing as it seems more challenging and great in every way. For me,a nurse should never say that his/her job is hard,stressful or what-so-ever because it only shows that one is not ready to handle the job of giving care unconditionally. We must always think positive and think big. And upon entering this kind of profession, one must take it seriously and be prepared for what-ever may happen. So let's all strive, study and work hard to be able to become successful nurses.

Good evening ma'am...

"Nursing is Caring"
Caring and nursing have always been thought of synonymously. Most individuals choose nursing as a profession because of their desire to care for other individuals.
Nurses use the nursing process to assess, plan, implement and evaluate patient care.
Nursing, possibly one of the most important, and most humane jobs out there, is crucial to modern healthcare, but also played a key roll in the health care systems of the past.

In the past, the nursing simply referred to breast feeding a child, but soon evolved into caring for others who need caring for, often in a maternal roll. Eventually nursing has settled to the definition of today, where it is more specifically caring for people's health, for the injured, sick, or deprived. And nurses still exist in every culture, because they are so crucial to the survival of societies

Now nursing has become technical and requires special training, certification, and equipment that nurses of the past had never heard of. This has made it so there are less nurses than there used to be, so the demand for nurses has grown at an exponential rate. People who go through the vigorous training to become a nurse can expect a lot of good job offers, and very good pay, it is a very safe job to have because it provides stability.

Nursing is a noble profession and nurses have contributed their commitment and dedication to their patients, giving comfort, support and love.

Thank you poh for everything and God Bless ma'am...

Nursing is caring.
Henderson created the basic needs because nursing is caring and because she cared, she wanted that the future nurses will consider the 14 basic human needs enable to serve patients with care.
She's admirable for she wants the care to be given to patient and that's what we aimed to do.
Thank you ma'am for posting this article!

"Nursing is Caring"

Taking care of someone who is not really involve to you is hard. but as a nurse you must know how to give care to anyone who needs you. for not the reason cause we have to but for the reason that we want to. being a nurse is extraordinary because in your everyday life you are responsible for the health of the people who needs care.. its not easy being a nurse what we really need is to embrace this profession and take good care of each and every person who needs us..

"NURSING IS CARING"

the role of the nurse is difficult but still many of us embrace this profession.why?because we love it, inspite of the difficulties we experienced here.but if you know how to practice the proper care this might be easy for us.and one of the best way to make this easy is by applying the 14 basic human needs of Virginia Henderson.

and I always remember the line that our clinical instructor,Mrs.Danela oloresisimo,said that"you cannot give what you don't have!"I,myself,want to have the things I need so I can share it to others...

ma'am dani,thank you for that inpirational line!

"After the verb 'to love,''to help is the next most beautiful verb in the world."
This saying is true especially to nurses. Nursing is caring. it is about giving unconditional care to those who need it.

Us, student nurses should learn to give care to others in preparation for our profession. Nursing is really about giving, giving care, giving trust, giving information and giving love. As what mother Teresa quoted "it is not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving."

"NURSING IS CARING"...a real definition of caring to your patient.As a nursing student I can see how hard this profession is.It is not easy as giving medication to the sick but it is giving your whole life to your patient.Giving care to other people is very hard because you two are not related to each other,but as nurses do...they give their care to strangers...and this give the real meaning of nursing.

The nurse has a difficult job or work because aside of giving care to the patient, the nurse should always understand her patient so they can have a good interaction with each other. She also assist the patient to attain the 14 basic needs of the patient so it will be easy to cure the sickness. The nurse should function as the provider for the patient dependenses. That was just some of the functions of the nurse, and it gives me alot of ideas on what to do as a nursing student.

Nursing is a difficult job. It requires patience, strenght, understanding and trust. As a nurse, we should help our patients to become healthy. In her theory, she emphasized that, when a person lacks one of the 14 basic needs, he is considered as unhealthy.It is the responsible of the nurse to give what the patient is lacking.

alvin vera said...

Nursing is Caring,the first thing that came in my mind when I first heard the word nursing is that nursing is just study of how to help the doctor in curing the patient.But after reading the article and through our discussions, I've realized that nursing is quite difficult to deal with because of caring for the one who is a totally stranger to you.
Maybe it will take time for me to adapt that manner but I believe that you're not a nurse if you don't know how to care even if you've already passed board exam.

Carla Bianchi I. Pineda said...

Being a nurse is not just a career that one that one must acclaim. it is full time career that one must involve whether in good times or in bad times. A nurse should know how to adapt in every situations she currently facing. She may be a playmates to a child, guidance councilor to a disturbed father or even a loving grandchild to an elderly patient . That's why I can say that this kind of field coups a very wide range of responsibilities to everyone.

"Nursing is Caring" simple but meaningful. Nursing profession is not an easy job. It requires understanding, patience, strength, etc. We need to provide them a care and we need to help them to the fast recovery of their illness. Because as a nurse we are responsible for their wellness.

The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery.

mm.. A nursing role was really hard, Every patient is a stranger and it's the nurse's responsibility to established a good nurse-patient relationship. It is important that you know the story of your patient, for you to know what kind of care will you give, and to fulfill what the patient is lacking.

Nursing is a very complicated profession wherein not only the brain is responsible for one’s success but the heart also plays a great role in achieving goals. Honestly, at first, I thought that nursing profession is quite an easy task, but as I go beyond the realistic world of this profession, I realized that one must have an extraordinary personality. I also now know the answers to my questions like “why people say that nursing is a hard task” and “why nursing students must first pass different examinations to proclaim them as a registered nurse”.
Nursing requires patience, hard work, understanding and devotion. Nurses must think not only the physical illness of the patient but also the emotional and spiritual problems of them.
As a nursing student, I am really challenged with this article and quite nervous but excited on the obstacles that are waiting for me. And the only thing that I will do for now is to determine my weaknesses and have a proper cure for it for me to establish a stronger and better personality than yesterday. And I hope I will pass my limitations for me to achieve the goal that I am reaching for.

Doing for involves actions on the part of the nurse that are performed on the client's long term well-being.

It includes skills and knowledge on how we can take care of our patients. Also, it includes comforting and helping patients to recover from their illness and to help them to meet their needs.

Timothy John said...

Good Morning Mrs. Oleresisimo,

I think that this article showed me the meaning how important are nurses to the patients, because it stated that the nurses must act and provide care for the sick and injured people as soon as possible. And it must be effective because caring is non-sense without your affection to your patients, because patients do not only need the physical caring but also the emotional and spiritual caring of the sick which is stated in the theory of Henderson.

And I thank You Mam for giving us this opportunity to see this one of a kind article.

Nursing is Caring
In this article it is stated that a nurse must provide care for the patient, the nurse must met the unmet needs of their patient, it requires to assist, even in the simplest thing that their patient can’t do, and then simultaneously they must also teach them on how to be independent so they can apply it to their selves when the time comes they are needed to be discharged. Nurses must inform their patients every single details about their health condition of what are do’s and don’ts, and give some healthy tips to prevent their illness to return. I knew this article will be my first guide when my duty come.

"Nursing Caring"... a holistic caring that is performed by the nurse to lessen the patients' suffering in order to come up with the good outcome of the patient...
travelbee's human-to-human relationship model emphasizes humanistic revolution which include the phases wherein the nurse and patient's first impression and started to begin a holistic relationship between each other, share their experiences, performing interventions to alleviate the patient's condition. hospice is also the main focus in the theory as the self actualizing experience.it is also applicable to nursing practice,specially to the caring of the cancer patients...

the function of a nurse doesn't come that easy, it takes a lot of temptation and disipline in able to be n d medical world. our duty s not just to paint the hospital red checking evry patient's vital sign and giving medicines but also meeting their needs and giving unconditional care which they need evenmore. the function of a nurse is to perfrom her job according to the ethical standard required by her profession and to work in an altruistic way. we can't blame nurses who go abroad to earn more because as we all know, nursing is one of the low paying professionals in the country. they choose this profassion to earn but lacking of desire.

is it called "care"? literally speaking yes, but is it CARING when u expect something big from it?

Nurses have one of the most complicated duties and obligations for the patients. Cause nurses should provide the wellness of the patient to achieve the complete nursing care. The nurses should know the 14 Basic human needs so they can easily perform their tasks for the patient. Also, nurses should have a good communication and relation with the patient for them to an easier way of developing the nursing care.

Nursing is caring. That's the three-word summary i can say about the article i had read. When one is a nurse, she considers every aspect of her cleint whether it's physical, mental, social, emotional, spiritual, etc.One characteristic the nurse must possess is a caring attitude. When you love to care, there is a huge possibility that you can become a good nurse. A nurse must not just have the knowledge and skill, she should have the attitude also.
"Doing for" is mentioned several times in the article. It simply reminds us that the nurse's special role is to become a substitute in place of the patient and not waiting for anything in return.

Being a nurse is not an easy job and
showing love, care and respect to every individual who is not complete enough, fill in what is lacking on the patient.

And, patients need to be independent because sometimes, they depend on somebody who can help them without knowing that they also need to know how to work on their own.

A nurse is a versatile person. . .a nurse can a the patient's partner, substitute, and a helper.

there is an circumstance that he/she become as a group in the health care team . But also he/she must also be independent in taking care of his patient.

According to Virginia Henderson, an individual cannot be considered as a healthy one if he or she will not perform the 14 basic human needs. As i read this article i found out that nurses have an important role in terms of taking good care of the patient because one of their responsibility is to assist their patient. As a nursing student, i already see myself as a registered nurse who is taking care of my patients. Eventhough, some says that you cant give what you dont have, but for me, maybe, I certainly can.

14 basic human needs
in this theory Henderson shows that for a patient to be healthy she must have the 14 basic human needs.

if one of this is missing to the patient it is the responsibility of the nurse to fullfil what is missing to the patient.


the work of the nurse is not easy because you need to take care of your patient and taking care of a person needs a lot of time and effort.

nursing is really a hard job, there are so many things that need to know for us to be able to perform and made are responsibilities well. ofcourse as a nurse we should need to take good care of our patient,lessen there suffering,provide there needs,help them, and teach them to be self care deficit. for others they say that is just simple because they cant see whats all behind those things.the fact is we are all strangers so we shoud interact with the patient in a nice way so we can get his trust and for us to be easy to know what is his condition and you should be patient,we should care for the sake of our patient and be part of there life.

MARLENE MAISIE said...

Upon reading the journal, I realized that nursing really is no easy job. Being a nurse, you should develop qualities such as ingenuity, compassion and have that sufficient knowledge in order to give good service to the patient. Moreover, nursing requires helping and being a substitute to the patient when he needs assistance or when he lacks something. These are the roles that a nurse should perform.

I taught Henderson theory of 14 components of basic nursing care is just like “prevention is better than cure” but after I read this journal it is clear to me that not only the sick person need the care but also well like the mother, after giving birth even though she is not sick she needs a care because she need to recover for her body.

it says that each and every one has a unique function. For a nurse their function is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery.Nurses should substitue for the patient, as helper for the patient and as a parter with the patient we have a big responsibilty to our patient the only function of our patient is to follow us so we should be very careful in all the activities of the patient.and to be a healthy person we should have her 14 fundamentals of human needs we should reach this 14 fudamentals.

really, being a nurse means a lot for somebody. somebody who is in need. but i believe that becoming and being a nurse is much more hard and satisfying than that of the patient. with the journal 'Nursing is Caring', it is very much obvious that being a nurse and applying the necessary physical, emotional, etc. needs of the patient is very hard to comply. but having read this journal made me more interested in becoming a nurse someday. someone who can alleviate someone's feeling. someone who can cure those who is is need. someone who can make the 'impossible' possible.

When I read the article I realized that nursing profession is really centered on “SERVICE and CARE”. It is hard to do things such as those tackled if the patients are not your relatives…I supposed….because I myself feels so. But if we know the focus of nursing we will be a good nurse someday.
Jesus Christ is also a nurse, He take care for us for He knows the things we need…He love both the sinners and good people. It is the same with the duty of the nurse, to assist sick or well persons. But as a well trained nurse, we should know when and what are the nursing cares we will render for the patients might take advantage of our service. It is also our goal to help him become independent.

Nursing is apparently caring. From the very word itself, "nurse" meaning " to care. " Nursing is not simply healing the patient's condition but also working with the healthcare team to help heal the physical, mental and spiritual being of the patient. Nursing is not an obligation, but a vocation where a nurse must put all her heart in helping alleviate the pain felt by the patient physically and emotionally.

14 Basic Human Needs is very helpful for the nurses, it helps their patient to have a good condition. Nurse is responsible to cure and help their patient to be healthy. Just always observe the patient if their meets the 14 Basic Human Needs. It will guide the nurse.

Thanks Mrs Oloresisimo for introducing the theory of Henderson, and i will apply this theory in our duty.
