Abstract (summary)
A student’s future practice must be informed by theoretical or practical knowledge and nursing philosophy to encourage them to critically reflect to imagine themselves as professionals. A guided teaching strategy to explore the elements of nursing practice through an aesthetic and philosophical lens can help students understand how to integrate their personal selves into their future roles as professionals. A personal philosophy that draws insight from a clinical example highlights the dichotomy between idealism in nursing education and the realities of clinical practice. Creating personal philosophy statements encourages reflection and growth throughout undergraduate nursing education and beyond.
