Personality, work life balance, hardiness, and vocation: a typology of nurses and nursing values in a special sample of English hospital nurses

Work in this field suggests that a major determinant of success in training is the candidate’s value commitment to their chosen profession (Traynor et al. 2017). Given this, we advocate that professional educators should develop the personal (and personality) strengths of nurses accepted for training. Alongside socialization in fundamental nursing values, educators should also promote ongoing programs of social support both before and after graduation (Cortese et al. 2010; Düchting 2015). As Welby (2016) has argued, valuing nurses requires the fostering and support of nurses’ professional value systems as well as building their professional strengths. Additional strategies such as increasing “mindfulness” (Galante et al. 2017) may also enhance emotional well-being and endurance in professional students. A variety of approaches to problems of burnout deserve to be tested, including cognitive-behavioral counselling (Lloyd et al. 2013). Nurses’ spiritual values may be another aspect of a nursing professional’s identity which is worth exploring, and supporting (Ross et al. 2014).

Programmes exist for promoting ‘emotional intelligence’ and ‘emotional resilience’ in nurses prior to and following their graduation (Montes-Berges & Augusto, 2007; McQueen, 2004; Grant & Kinman, 2013; Sharon & Greenberg, 2018), and these approaches could also promote (or build on) nurses’ ‘hardy personality’. Nursing education, and post-graduate professional support needs to be ‘strength-based’ (Gottlieb, 2013 & Gottlieb & Gottlieb 2017), and nursing educators could have a crucial role in providing career-long support for their graduates which includes

Vocation, motivation and approaches to learning: a comparative study

Vocation, motivation and approaches to learning: a comparative study

Contrary to this, degrees that are more ‘service oriented’ tend to attract students with a strong internal motivation. Nursing could be considered as an example of such a degree. Boughn (2001), Boughn and Lentini (1999) and Nilsson and Stomberg (2008) identified “caring for others” as a main motivator for nursing students. Newton et al. (2009) identified four key themes that were common to all participants in their study: a desire to help, caring, a sense of achievement and self-validation. In the review of the literature Raines (2010) stated that intrinsic factors such as the desire to help or care for others and to contribute to society have been reported as the dominant factors influencing career choices in this context.

Congruence of Person-Group and Person-Vocation Fits towards Career Advancement

Congruence of Person-Group and Person-Vocation Fits towards Career Advancement

Another construct involved in this study was person-vocation fit. Generally, person-vocation fit represents the broadest fit domain and focuses on the compatibility between an individual and his or her career choice. Based on vocational choice theory, which demonstrates the matching between various career paths and individuals’ needs, abilities and interest, person-vocation fit demonstrates that specific types of person are required for different type of vocations. In other word, this fit explains that individuals are best suited to occupations that are congruent with their self-concept. Person-vocation fit also conceptualized as interest congruence or the “degree of match between the individual’s vocational interests and aspects of their work environment” [20].

Vocation, Belongingness, and Balance: A Qualitative Study of Veterinary Student Well-Being

Vocation, Belongingness, and Balance: A Qualitative Study of Veterinary Student Well-Being

An elevated risk for suicide among veterinarians has stimulated research into the mental health of the veterinary profession, and more recently attention has turned to the veterinary student population. This study sought to qualitatively explore UK veterinary students’ perceptions and experiences of university life, and to consider how these may impact upon wellbeing. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eighteen students from a single UK school, who had been purposively selected to include male, female, graduate, widening participation and standard entry perspectives across all five years of the course. Three main themes were identified; a deep-rooted vocation, navigating belongingness and finding balance . Participants described a long-standing aim to become a

Nurses’ knowledge about nursing care systematization and nursing process

Nurses’ knowledge about nursing care systematization and nursing process

The use of ND is fundamental in nurses’ work routine, establishing the function of guiding and substantiating nursing interventions, with a proper and uniform language, leaving them viable. It also directs nursing care for the needs of each care subject, simplifies the choice of the most appropriate interventions, objectively records reactions and allows for the next assessment of the performed nursing care (Benedet et al., 2016). The NP is defined as an activity that organizes nursing actions, through a sequence of interrelated and interdependent phases. In this way, the breaking of the effectiveness of the steps presented in the study differs from the theoretical definition, because the NP needs to base on the nurse’s scientific knowledge, which identifies the individual needs in their entirety, and, through an intervention, provides the expected results. This separation of the sequence hinders the execution of a logical reasoning, with the risk of making it a mere realization of care routines, distancing it from a scientific process (Benedet et al., 2016). In the thematic category 1 - Technical-scientific qualification, five statements point out the lack of preparation in both the design as development of the nursing process as a factor of difficulty to carry out the systematization fully, evidenced in the following statements.

Critical analysis of the discourse of competence in professional nursing practice

Critical analysis of the discourse of competence in professional nursing practice

In referring to the Foucauldian theory relating to ‘aesthetics and subjectivity’, as presented by Danaher et al. (2000, p.136) Foucault speaks of ‘transformation of one’s self by ones own knowledge’. Foucault emphasised the importance of having the desire to be transformed by the work one does. In linking this theory to nursing and a nurses desire to provide competent care to patients, this theory suggests that valuing what one does for a job will result in nurses recognising those things that are available to them in practice that will assist the transformation of their nursing practices. Foucault suggests that believing in ones practice will assist the development of personal and professional attitudes about the importance of learning. Foucault also suggests that aesthetics is concerned with ways of presenting ourselves to ourselves and to others (Danaher et al., 2000). This challenges nurses to think about how they want to present themselves as a profession to consumers of health care, and how they want to present themselves to their own colleagues. In linking this to life long learning opportunities for nurses, nurses have an option to decide if they want to engage in certain learning opportunities such as postgraduate studies. However they are regulated to a point by their profession through mandatory learning situations such as unit based competency testing in the attempt to continually update current practices (Nicklin & Kenworthy, 2000).

Knowledge Management: the Development of Testing Portal for Selection of Profession

Selection of profession is one of the most actual problems, the resolution of which determines the growth of people„s personal as well as public welfare. Only selection of such a vocation that complies with the ind i- vidual„s spiritual and physical capabilities and propen- sities will enable the person to find inner fulfillment in the job, care for it, improve and perfect it. It is rather difficult to select a suitable vocation. Often, advice or encouragement to seek for the set objective is necessary. Therefore, consultants have to help the pupils to assess their vocational aptitude, determination, interests, abili-

Upon reviewing potential breach of privacy or ethics, none was found or indicated. The participants for the pre- and post-test was voluntary and understood their objection will not affect their general or wound care in any way. Participants whose language preference was not English, a tele-language line was utilized to explain the process and their right to refuse. 9 of 10 patient agreed to allow three to four nurses to asses and palpate their wound. Some ethical concerns while caring for patients in long-term care facilities are autonomy (informed consent), futility of treatment, and limited resources. Often times, patients are prescribed orders by physicians that does not provide maximum effect or there is a lack of nursing resources in terms of time. Other times, patients are given treatment they did not give informed consent to such as medication they receive.

Quality of Nursing Courses as Perceived by Students: Relationship with Their Academic Achievement in Palestine College of Nursing

Generally, teaching methodology have been perceived by students as having the least quality level score (77.54%), of the dimensions of all nursing courses. This could be because most of teachers using a limited strategies and methods of teaching, as they depended on lectures, and power points presentations only. Other teaching methods like role play, group discussions, problem solving, simulations, self-learning…etc. were not used because of the unavailability of facilities, both manpower and materials.

Saints and lovers: myths of the avant garde in Michel Georges Michel's Les Montparnos

Saints and lovers: myths of the avant garde in Michel Georges Michel's Les Montparnos

As this last passage indicates, the end of Les Montparnos sees an apparently optimistic celebration of avant-garde art, and its mythologization in terms of a mystical vocation, give way to an overriding sense of failure. After Modrulleau dies and as Haricot-Rouge throws herself from the window of their studio, we are witness to another gory spectacle, in which her child, the hoped-for artistic messiah, emerges from her mangled body as a limp pile of meat: ‘Entre les jambes sanglantes, l’enfant divin sortait comme un immense saucisson nu, comme un immonde ver rouge de ce ventre écrasé’ (1976: 274). In an echo of the metaphorical identification of child and work of art in Zola’s L’Œuvre, where the death of the sickly child, Jacques, is representative of Claude’s failure to (pro)create artistically, Georges-Michel represents ‘Celui qui viendra’, the future of art, as still-born. But this is only one aspect of a broader pessimism: if, as Modrulleau claims, art is brought down by ‘les putains de la terre’, its prostitution is not driven solely by women, but by the market. The religion of art is seen to die as speculation on Modrulleau’s work commences in the wake of his death: indeed, in the final lines of the novel, we are told with precision for how much Modrulleau’s statue of Haricot- Rouge has been bought and sold, and given details of the next auction where we, as readers and consumers, might hope to put in our bids, the narrator’s matter-of-fact tone pointing up the reduction of rich aesthetic experience to monetary value. Commercial concerns are also seen to invade and compromise the integrity of Montparnasse as privileged artistic space:

Harvest Thanksgiving and the Photography of Grace

Harvest Thanksgiving and the Photography of Grace

Photographs taken in rural churches illustrate the extent to which religious aesthetics and vocation were tied together. In fruit-growing areas the same people who prepared Harvest Thanksgiving displays spent their working lives preparing produce to look its best in the market. At Bayswater, Victoria, in the mid-twentieth century apples and pears were packed on the orchards in ‘flats’, a wooden case used for market, measuring approximately 50 x 75cm and holding two layers of fruit. Orchardists almost never photographed the fruit in their packing sheds. But in the chapel at the Bayswater Church of Christ the fruit was transformed. The flats were balanced on temporary frames and further fruit was added to ‘finish’ the display and conceal joins between the cases. It was then that the fruit was
