BELLO FERNANDEZ, Nilda L.; FENTON TAIT, María C. y ZUBIZARRETA ESTEVEZ, M. Magdalena. Influence of the humanistic and philosophical thinking on the nursing professional mode of acting. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2961.
A bibliographic review was made to assess the influence of humanistic and philosophical thinking in Nursing professional thinking. In our analysis, the institutionalization process of professional nursing is considered, as well as the necessary linking established among philosophical thinking, the most genuine elements of medical ethics, bioethics, and the nursing care process, to lay down strategies of professional care where the humanizing process in the art of care leads to health services of excellence in this century, as an answer to the increasing demand of personalizing health care. It was concluded that it is necessary to link knowledges of other sciences with nursing to materialize its object of study in a holistic way, since the quality of training of this professional does not depend exclusively on knowledge, intellectual abilities, and professional habits registered in the university curriculum vitae, but also on his motivations, on his personal and collective interests, as well as on the system of values regulating his professional ethics, since it is impossible to separate the good praxis from taking care of the humanistic values, starting from a proposal of nursing philosophy that includes the following components with a systemic approach: human beings, environment, health, nurse, and nursing.
