Nursing Empowerment through Good Clinical Practice

With the unprecedented global challenges posed today, research has brought a linear evolution to nursing paradigms and knowledge development in practice. It is the responsibility of the nursing profession to create a positive environment by integrating research concepts of ethical worth and translate it into nursing practice.

It is really an overwhelming experience to share my humblest knowledge and passion in nursing science to Indonesian nurses, nursing educators and nursing students of Diponegoro University School of Nursing- Faculty of Medicine and Kariadi Hospital on their Adult Health Scientific Meeting last August 15, 2014 in Semarang, Indonesia. Diponegoro University is an institutional homage continuously providing quality education to the people. The vitality and worth are exemplified by the nurses who are committed in upholding the dignity of the profession through the integration of evidenced-based practice. 


The said seminar not just upholded nursing empowerment but more on exemplary leadership and competence anchored with enhanced personality and moral values. Exemplifying the nurses through commitment and compassion in the delivery of quality care through utilization of research and strengthening nurses’ image for their professional and personal growth through Good clinical practice highlighted my talk on Nursing Empowerment. As nurses enter into the practice of nursing, we recognize the importance of using our education and evidence based knowledge to guide our actions within the clinical setting. 


As nurses pursue to achieve a soul in accordance with virtue, they should be more incline to provide quality nursing care and be an advocate for what is true and what is just, and more importantly, offer oneself to a more caring world. Through research development, it creates an involvement of both objective and subjective reality and/or experiences as nursing science, thus forming  a knowledge connector, where nurses brings together scientific and philosophical knowledge for personal and professional growth. Thus, it is the responsibility of the nursing profession to create a positive environment by integrating research concepts of moral virtue and translate it in the nursing practice.
