In my role as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner at PsyCare, I am dedicated to provide the best quality of care that I can in order to improve each patient’s quality of living. I am privileged to serve our patients and will constantly seek to earn the trust placed in my care. My main goal in this field is to elevate a patient’s quality of living and to assist them in achieving their fullest potential.
I feel that one important approach to patient care is establishing a positive rapport with the patient in order to establish trust. According to Carl Rogers, there are three essential qualities when approaching patient care. These qualities are “genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathetic understanding.” I feel that these qualities are important when forming a trusting patient/provider relationship. My overall approach to patient care would also resemble the Rogerian approach in the sense that I aim to assure the patient that he or she has the power for change. I want to instill in each patient that they have the power to change negative behaviors that are impacting their lives. I feel that when the patient is able to recognize that they have more control of their life than they may realize, they can “steer their own ship” in the path of a successful outcome. I feel that this approach to patient care is vital in order to effectively manage patient symptoms with the least amount of medication necessary.
