NURS347 Professional Beliefs Paper – Concepts: Person, Environment, Health, and Nursing

There are four dominant concepts in nursing: Person, Environment, Health, and Nursing.

Diversity (culture) is a sub-concept that moves through each of the four major concepts. Students may choose to include culture with Person. People enter nursing with definitions of these concepts that derive from their own personal experiences. Inherent in their definitions are their values, attitudes, and beliefs. It may be helpful to think of this process as values clarification-what these concepts are and what they are not.

This paper is a reflection on the four concepts and how the concepts interrelate based on the semester’s learning experiences. This paper is a personal statement of values; therefore, there are no “right” or “wrong” statements. However, it is expected that the student will address the four concepts including culture; identify major aspects of the concepts; draw relationships among them; analyze and evaluate alternative points of view; and draw conclusions that logically derive from the values expressed by the student for the concepts of Person, Environment, Health, and Nursing.


The paper is a reflection of the student’s ability to engage in critical thinking. The criteria for assessing critical thinking include:

· Interpretation of concepts using salient arguments and substantiating a point of view by reflecting alternative points of view.

· Explanation of assumptions and reasons with accurate interpretation of evidence.

· In-depth and thorough thinking processes that reflect open mindedness, fairness, and honesty in recognizing personal biases.

· Willingness to reconsider judgments.
