Title:
Enlightenment, Choice, and Empowerment
Abstract:
Enlightenment, Choice, and Empowerment
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Vietmeier, Timothy L., RN, BSN
P.I. Institution Name:Valley Hospital
Title:Enlightenment/Choice/Empowerment
The purpose of this presentation is to reintroduce and reinforce the need for solution oriented thinking, enlightenment, choice and empowerment in current nursing views, leadership and thinking. Many professionals can give a list of what is wrong in healthcare and professional nursing, yet when they are asked for solutions many respond with “It is not my job or problem” or “I don’t know”. Solution oriented thinking seeks to solve problems and not just identify them. Nursing writes the policy and procedure for all hospitals, yet they feel unable to initiate change or create choice. Enlightenment is the ability to give or receive intellectual or spiritual light through instruction and the impartment of knowledge in an effort to shed understanding upon whatever issue is unclear or not understood. I see no person incapable of understanding any healthcare issue, yet it will take time and a desire to learn to grasp the knowledge. Choice is the power and ability to select something that is preferred or significant to the person from an abundance or variety of opportunities. Many individuals never recognize the power of choice, and others fear its strength. Once the ability to choose is recognized, then the person will grasp the understanding that choice is learning. Nursing is the true leader of healthcare, it is our choice to create the future of nursing and not be lead into it. "...there is such a thing as perfection...and our purpose for living is to find that perfection and show it forth....Each of us is in truth an unlimited idea of freedom. Everything that limits us we have to put aside. (Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach.)
