Nicole CoryPhilosophy StatementFerris State University
As a nurse, I believe integrity is of the utmost importance. I believe that if I always act withintegrity I can never do wrong. At times integrity means reporting your own mistakes whichprovides the organization with an opportunity to understand other potential misses or errorswithin the system.While teamwork and collaboration are both highly valued, autonomy is also an admirable qualityin a leader. To act autonomously requires knowledge and understanding of a larger picture thanwhat is overtly perceived.I value harmony and diplomacy as a leader. I feel there is a way to communicate anything in adiplomatic and respectful manner.
In my practice as a nurse, and in my future practice as an informatics nurse specialist and aleader in the field, I acknowledge that I operate under several personal assumptions:1.
It is the job of the leader or INS to assist staff in performing to their full potential. Theleader or INS serves as a major informant and motivator in the implementation process.2.
Technology has major potential to improve the quality of care, but many healthcareproviders continue to operate under the assumption that technology is a hindrance.
