Professional Development Goals
The first thing that should be noted is that psych nursing is a recent academic option, which is highly relevant that more people are trained in it and help to broaden and deepen the scientific foundation of the care it offers. Although the psych nurses are already able to carry out different activities without the need for another health professional to indicate them, it is important that they can acquire greater independence so that their contribution is even greater, which is my first professional development goal.
Therefore, the degree in psych nursing must be strengthened, with studies and evidence that allow the framework of the work of those who practice it to grow and, in turn, encourage its professionals to intervene promptly to avoid complicating the medical situation of a patient.
I would like to be supportive, have a vocation for service, be responsible, and be organized. It is these basic qualities that will allow me to develop a nursing career. The organization and responsibility would be oriented there because the nurse, by nature, has to have an order, for the same reason that in the career, they develop everything in a programmed and systematic way (Hasan, Elsayed & Tumah, 2018).
Also, empathy with patients is essential when developing the vocation of a psych nurse. It has to do with that ability that the human being has to be able to understand the feeling in others. This is the skill that nurses develop during the training process and apply it later in their professional life.
Thus, an outgoing personality is needed more because psych nurse professionals contact all kinds of people, being they who are waiting or leaving the doors open for anyone who comes to a hospital or health center to receive the necessary help. Normally in a hospital center, the attention is a little greater than any other job.
Nurses tend to have a little more stress (Grove & Gray, 2018). So, this situation of being mobilized and noticing the activities they perform are often related to other types of tasks that can cause exhaustion, which is more psychological than physical. In professional life, it is almost similar, they have an activity of situations, and more or less, they have to project what activity to do in front of each one of them.
Alignment with Social Change
The alignment of psych nursing to social change is a crucial step in ensuring that this field has an impact on the healthcare industry. There has been technological development which has brought an impact to the way people live and interact. This has led to various institutions developing values and missions that professionals have to meet.
These values and missions are better identified in unlike other studies where they do not identify themselves as individuals, they only perceive themselves as a group within the work team. There is a domestic origin of psych nursing that contributes to its low recognition, especially of those who do not use nursing services in the community setting (Lewis, 2018).
Therefore, as a psych nurse practitioner, I will align my values to social change by giving value to listening, advice, and monitoring of activities scheduled in mentally ill patients.
In the framework of the development of computer care services, I will get closely related to routine and simple care actions, which means being in an area closer to the most domestic one. In addition, I will address the complexity of care, especially in the home care that mentally, dependent and fragile patients require today.
This will open the possibility for the recognition of my role as a guarantor and a coach in all the social health areas working in a comprehensive and coordinated way to find themselves in the place that the patient and his family need.
A psych nurse practitioner is in a privileged place, since he or she has achieved some visibility. Psych nurses value proximity and accessibility as an element of value. Besides, they are recognized as professionals who can help. Therefore, it is time they work on the idea of being coaches for mentally ill patients and their families, in fragility, and supporting health promotion strategies.
This ensures their safety in a model self-care and at a sustainable price. The nursing practice is based on solid values, very much in the relationship and interaction that can support the global system as a whole due to its ability to respond to the needs of the users and of the system itself in the right measure.
