Nursing Values - help!

  1. Hello again!

    Still on the nursing expertise assignement. though the end is near, this is my last question!

    I am asked to name two nursing values and to explain their importance to the nursing profession.

    I have looked in my books, in google and didn't find information about the nursing values.

    So far I have one (taken from the An Bord Altranais) being:
    Nursing care should be delivered in a way that respects the uniqueness and dignity of each patient/client regardless of culture or religion.

    I'm sure there is one out there dealing with emapthy or family nursing. I just don't find it (or can't formulate it well enough).

    Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    Yeah your along the right lines, I would choose Communication as the second one myself, empathy is what helps you to understand patients better, that would come under communication too.
