BACKGROUND: The philosophical and theoretical values of nursing moved away from a systematic review of the science of nursing and experienced a shift based on paradigms. The results may be interpreted by several nursing theorists in different ways.
AIM: This paper aims to analyze the development of a more comprehensive understanding toward the meaning of confidence concept of the nurses and stimulated services health, person, environment and nursing resolutions based on nursing discussions, and nursing-related literature. The definition of this resolution has been completed and synthesized successfully to fit our nursing philosophy.
METHODS: The main argument from the researchers shows the renewal of several nursing theorists and critical appraisal adopted by Walker and Avant in eight steps of the broader concept that was agreed at the beginning in the construction of phased planning from positivistic to questionable views of the research the philosophy in nursing provers that nurses confidence is also important.
RESULTS: They are academically constructed so that they do not highlight the daily improvement of nurses as nurses need to be confident in performing their job. We need to offer a philosophy of nursing with four things: Social, environmental health, passenger care, and self-confidence.
CONCLUSION: The selection of philosophy and ideology of the second paradigm among various options must be agreed on. Nurses must have strong self-confidence and smart collaboration who can make changes in the quality of life of others considering the good and bad for their health.
The nature of philosophy gives a significant influence on the way nurse examines the phenomena which happen on the field. Together with nursing ethics, it is needed for nursing practice, as the basic elements of rights, giving value and the nature to perform good nursing practice. Philosophy and science can’t be separated because they give mutual benefits each other; where science requires philosophy to connect its findings for human knowledge and philosophy can act as a language connecting disciplines.
