These patterns of knowing according to Carper (1978, cited in Haynes, Boese & Butcher, 2004) are Empirical, Aesthetic, Personal, and Ethics knowing.

    Influence is not freely attained. It must be earned through education, practical knowledge, peer respect, communication and interpersonal skills. Even though I am a degreed professional, competent in my job skills and confident in my abilities, I feel that I have little influence at my current job because I am not a licensed nurse. Will gaining a nursing degree increase the level at which I am able to impact others?

    Caring for a patient is not only restoring heath, it means so much more. To truly care for a patient you need to connect with them and treat them like a person. When caring for someone you influence the way the think feel and act. Caring plays one of the largest roles in nursing. If you don’t care for a patient and connect with them you will not be able to help them as effectively. Caring is something that every nurse should be practicing on a daily basis and when I become a nurse I will practice caring everyday to help my patients.

    The Not So Golden Years At a first glance, walking into a nursing home makes one wonder why there is such a negative stigma placed on the term. A typical scene usually involves walking into a roomy, well lit lobby leading into one or more long hallways. Residents are scattered about, a few in front of the big screen T.V. watching a movie, another few may be in a reading group, led by someone going over the daily newspaper. Aides can be seen moving busily about, pushing residents in their wheelchairs and bustling to answer a handful of call lights. The nurses move about greeting visitors, an

    I enjoyed reading this book because of it’s wit, occasional chaos, and ultimate tragedy. The characters certainly didn’t hurt either. In fact, I could stand to see them developed even further. I loved Kesey’s choice in making Chief Bromden the narrator. Because no one in the institution believes he can hear or speak, he is privy to all of the goings-on, which struck me as brilliant. However, he did suffer from hallucinations, which leaves it up to the reader to sort the "real" from the "imaginary." McMurphy, the charismatic and breezy spirited iconoclast, becomes instantly likable. He is the
