The four domains of nursing are the person, environment, health, and nursing.
2. Review the definition of nursing developed by the American Nurses Association (ANA), “the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations” (2004, p. 7).
3. Formulating your philosophy of nursing. Use the questions below to help you develop a philosophy. The following are ideas to reflect on in the process of defining your own personal beliefs. You shouldn’t list and answer each one in your paper . Instead use your responses to the questions to devise a nursing philosophy.
What is your central belief about the individual person? What makes up a person, who they are and how they got to where they are?
What constitutes the environment? Does it include elements both external and internal? Give examples. Find out what internal/external environments are and how the person interacts with them.
