Why do nurses need philosophy?
AbstractThe nature of philosophy gives a significant influence on the way nurse examines the phenomena which happen on the field. Together with nursing ethics, it is needed for nursing practice, as the basic elements of rights, giving value and the nature to perform good nursing practice. Philosophy and science can’t be separated because they give mutual benefits each other; where science requires philosophy to connect its findings for human knowledge and philosophy can act as a language connecting disciplines. Philosophy will increase nurses’ ability to understand the phenomena and this will provide nurses with a way to think about their practice. Caring is expected to be a spirit of nursing, and through caring, nurse can provide a safe and compassionate nursing care. For nurse educator, caring is a soul of nursing that will help the students cope or make adaptation with the stressor, thus will increase their motivation to study nursing.
