OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE COLLEGES CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION

Confidence is an act of believing to oneself. It is trust and reliance to one¶s skill. Confidence is a firm belief in one¶s powers, abilities or capacities. ³You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.´ (Eleonor Roosevelt) Self confidence is having confidence in oneself when considering a capability. It is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle. People who lack self-confidence will find it difficult to become successful. Some people have their confidence but they don¶t know how to apply it. Most probably we lack our confidence when we meet people that seem to have more confidence than us. We need to apply it in our daily lives for us to go on our dreams and goals in life. We are here to live for a particular reason and purpose, so if we just merely keep to ourselves alone, we will not gain knowledge. People who are confident are able to influence others, as well as control their own thoughts and emotions. For this reason it allows them to keep negative thoughts at one side and to practice positive affirmation helping them gain control of their life. A person who has positive outlook in life will ultimately live to be more successful than the person who has a negative attitude. Nursing care is the process by which the health care providers assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of activities contributing to health or recovery that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge, and to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible.

In Maslow¶s Hierarchy of Human Needs, he ranks the self-esteem/confidence as the 4th among the human needs. Self confidence is essential for self-worth, self-identity, self-respect and body image. In this study, the researchers assessed the confidence of the student nurses on how they rendered care especially when they handled private patients. When the researchers went further in this study, they found out that there were some questions that proved challenging to the respondents, and which made these respondents assess themselves on whether they really are confident in rendering care. Furthermore, in this study, the researchers came across different terms that have helped them understand this study better. The researchers also added different theories that supported their study. It was a big help in their study to prove that the result of the theories actually happened. It is very important to assess the level of confidence of the student nurses. This will enable the researchers to determine if the student nurses can provide the proper care and needs of their patients. Self-confidence is very important to nursing students especially when they are assigned in private patients. The student nurses lacked

confidence in their ability to provide adequate care for their patients, which stemmed from their insecurities and feeling of inadequacies in facing their patients, which made them not able to do their job satisfactorily. The more confidence the student nurses have, the more successful they can be in their chosen field of career. Having high self-confidence helps student nurses remain strong and committed to their own decisions in life. It frees them from fear to face their patients and give their patients the assurance that it is their moral responsibility to give their patients quality care, and as such, the patients can place their put trust in their care provider, the student

nurses themselves. The student nurses should keep in mind that people can assess and determine if an individual has a high confidence by merely looking at the way the student nurse carries himself or herself in matters of poise, such as posture and in the manner by which he or she talks. This means that student nurses should show confidence inwardly (mentally) and outwardly (physically). The researchers chose this study because they wanted to find out the levels of confidence of each student nurse assigned in the 9th floor of the VRPMC. The result of this study will determine whether the student nurses are successful in rendering health care to their private patients. Background of the Study As nursing students enter their final year of study, it should be expected that they are preparing to take on the responsibilities of their profession with confidence. However, final year nursing students experience apprehension and lack of confidence in fulfilling the expectations and responsibilities of professional nursing (Carson, Kotzé & van Rooyen, 2005; Heslop, McIntyre & Ives, 2001). This study wants to determine the levels of confidence of student nurses of Our Lady of Guadalupe Colleges in Rendering Nursing Care to Private Patient at 9th floor of Victor R. Potenciano Medical Center, 2009. Since, as the researchers viewed the students during Related Learning Experience and for the period of Nursing Care Management Lecture. Students have very high levels of confidence during skills but when it comes to theory, students have moderately high levels of confidence.

OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE COLLEGES CHAPTER 2 REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES

This chapter presents literature reviewed which have bearing in this study and is divided into foreign and local. A. Foreign It greatly emphasizes the importance of the relationships that nurses and student nurses have with patients and families, and how these relationships are central to the power base of individual nurses and the profession. A powerful nurse ± one who is confident in her knowledge of what patients and families need and her ability to respond to those needs ± is an invaluable asset to organizations who place a premium on high quality care and who strive to put patients and families at the center of what they do. Nurses¶ perceptions of empowerment were also explored in a recent qualitative study involving Iranian staff nurses and nurse leaders. Drawing on interview and observational data, the investigators identified themes or factors that the nurses associated with power. These included having self-confidence. (Hagbaghery, Salsali, & Ahmadi, 2004). The nursing care rendered by a student nurse is a nursing care of accompanying someone on a journey of recovery, end of life, or the promotion and maintenance of health; and yet, regardless of the journey¶s destination, living each moment to the highest quality. At times, when the patient does not have the power to see his/her way forward due to lack of physical, psychological, or emotional capacity, the student nurse can play vital role on leading the patient in the direction of healing through his/her belief of one¶s abilities, assurance of a therapeutic care and a patient-student nurse relationship based on trust and responsibility. At other times, it is the patient who leads. With healing as a destination,

with self-confidence as the fuel, the possibilities for creative leadership by both the student nurse and the patient are infinite. Self confidence is likely using the nursing¶s power base to move the patient¶s recovery from vision to reality. A vision is a picture, an image of the destination, the goal one is trying to achieve. The antecedent for visioning is dreaming. Dreaming requires time, practice, and permission from one¶s self to think illogically and irrationally (Malone, 1991). Dreaming is also practicing of the nursing procedures and paying attention to the quality of nursing care to be rendered. It requires power to move the dream from vision to reality. This can only be accomplished by sharing it with others and transforming the vision as others buy into it and joint ownership occurs. A vision without action is a hallucination (Malone, 1996). Nevertheless, there is no way to deliver quality care in highly complex, frequently chaotic, organizational environments without power of the student¶s self confidence. The student¶s clearly identified fear and misapprehension as complicating factors in learning and developing clinical confidence. (Stevens & Dullhunty 1997, Fisher 2002). B. Local The relationship between nurse and patient can have a major impact on the wellbeing of both parties. Any satisfaction derived from an inappropriate relationship can quickly turn to dissatisfaction as the relationship inevitably becomes more stressful owing to the secrecy involved. Self-esteem is the way people think about themselves, and how worthwhile they feel. Psychologists use the word self-esteem to describe whether someone likes himself or not. Someone with high self-esteem might think that he is good at doing things and are

Some people may also injure themselves if they suffer from a low self-esteem. The development of self-esteem ultimately needs to go beyond a collection of activities. Different psychologists have different ways of measuring selfesteem. At its heart. and meet challenges. ³Nursing is a profession that paints different pictures to different individuals particularly among the sick and even among the healthy. Lydia A. Parents help a child handle conflict. According to Ms. Some people think that selfesteem is linked to depression. ³Nursing as an art to be cultivated and a profession to be followed is modern nursing as a practice originated in the dim past where some mothers among the cave dwellers cooled the forehead of her sick child with water from a brook. However. the essence of nursing is perceived locally and internationally in a single-perspective as a profession to whom the survival of our patients depend upon.´ Sir William Osler once wrote. self-esteem education should touch every part of a child¶s life and should manifest itself in all the ways. The development of a strong and positive sense of self occurs as a result of the child¶s life experiences being acknowledged and validated by significant people around him.

He also states that social factor. According to Erick Erickson¶s Theory of Psychosocial Development. rather than biological or psychological factors. In his theory. He says that being aware of your abilities made you more confident in all the things you are doing. Everyone was born with certain character traits that will help him to boost his confidence to do certain things and able to socialize with others. It is important to know how to socialize with others because it is a way to gain confidence and to develop one¶s character. Most of the time traits are considered to be naturally part of a person¶s personality from birth. The rich heritage of nursing from Florence Nightingale will remain in the history but must be kept alive through continuous knowledge improvement that will sustain the image of nursing in any country in the world. This research is parallel to Erick Erickson¶s Theory that it is important to the individual to have confidence. particularly in executing speedy judgment and immediate action in any recognized health situation.

the person is being more mature as he faces difficulties in life. confidence had been established and his character was developed. he is prepared and confident as he faces those trials because he has already set his mind on having the ability to do all things.´ Moreover. obstacles and difficulties because when he was infant or still young. there are situations that we need to face alone and having confidence will help us to surpass that situation.OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE COLLEGES 13 provided by his family. In that regard. Sigmund Freud¶s Psychoanalytic Theory stresses that an individual¶s personality is established in the first few years of life at critical periods of psychological development. he is already confident to face challenges. In that manner. As we go through. the individual will have become more confident in facing life. Likewise. . he is gaining confidence because he knows that his family is there to support him and guide him. and the courage to encounter those trials. This statement suggests that one¶s personality can be developed and established when a person has encountered critical periods such as choosing a career and when facing challenges and trials. Thomas Carlyle states that ³No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from the shock of our experience the so called trauma but we make out of them what suits our purpose. as a person grows older and is preparing for his future by choosing his career. In the end.
