Consider this excerpt from “Articulating Your Philosophy of Nursing,” (Denehy, 2001)
“One strategy nurses can use to affirm that their practice is in harmony with their value system is to write a personal philosophy statement. This might be general in nature, such as a philosophy that relates to life values [or] it could be a philosophy statement related to beliefs about the profession of nursing… In each case, this activity will encourage nurses to clarify their values and then examine how their philosophy fits with their professional practice. Articulating a philosophy statement is an intellectual activity that requires careful thought, because values need to be identified, clarified, and prioritized.”
