Those concepts evolve around each other and share the ultimate power in greatly influencing persons wellbeing. In the practice of Clinical Nurse Leader the needs of the patient are determined by careful assessment of physical, psychological, social, spiritual, educational, developmental and cultural wishes. Humankind is viewed to be a unique individual, with persistent determination in striving for independence and ability for freedom of choice.

Humankinds learn to co-exist with others through the art of continuous socialization within their families, networks of friends and participation in technological advances. Individuals state of health models their quality of life. Persons wellbeing and homeostasis is a constantly changing phenomenon. The state of health depends on self-awareness and perception influenced by growth and development phase of a persons life, past experiences, cultural beliefs and socio-economic status.

I think that the philosophy is very well written covering all those major metaparadigm explaining each one of them in a great detail, paying special attention to the patient their family and community. It talks about people as holistic beings and it underlines the importance of mind, body and soul. Two beliefs in my philosophy are that a persons health dictates a whole lot about their quality of life together with past experiences and cultural heritage can significantly influence peoples environment. Two professional nursing values expressed in my own philosophy are trust and caring.
