What does professionalism mean to me? #IND2017 (dnf: draft never finished)

Something along, within and across these lines...

humanistic ----------------------------------------- mechanistic

Being self-aware, reflective and
reflexive including aspects of your
role that either you don't especially
like, or you're just not 'good' at.
Recognise when to ask
for help, advice, supervision.
Anticipating needs.
Indicating pros and cons.
Keeping up-to-date.
*Have the courage to blow
that whistle if you must.
Communicate to the best of your
ability and learn constantly as human
nature dictates you must.
Look after yourself: if ill Be ill.
Take care
of your personal ethics and values,
don't be bullied into lowering them
and running with the crowd.
Nurse = Lifelong Learner
... then you will question your own competence.
As you strive to be someone else remember you can be yourself.
The things you take personally are those you open the door to. Learn from them.
Never forget your shield,
protect yourself and others in
what you disclose about
yourself and others.

Being compass-ionate requires

360 degree

vision, hearing ...
learning and forgetting...

Your keen are you?
So really observe.

Care about time,
your management of it as a resource
and the time frames of
past, now, future, hoped for and imagined.
Remember you need to understand information systems, data management in so far as it supports or places at risk the care you deliver and the safety of your patients.
If I use IT based media I bear in mind the scope of the platform.
Open to innovation:
but see the elephant as an elephant.

When the robots knock on your door being professional means you won't be in: "Moved On"

As you care, draw on learning
regards where you stand -
 you are a guest in someone's home,
As your feet are then grounded politically,
so too is touch and
negotiating personal spaces.
 Learn from others 
Expectations Expectations Expectations
Manage them in a way such that you do not make promises you can not keep.
Be committed to what you do.
Learn from your peers, especially for safety's sake, but also form your own opinion.
Talk this and work through with colleagues.
Not everyone will 'like' you; you in turn may not 'like' people. Working through this (without experiencing abuse) as your role demands is being professional.
By all means be a team player, but don't let the games that people play distract you from being professional.

Community Care
End of Life Care
 As you learn from others 
pay most attention to the lessons 
in Love as you will witness many. 

The trust and respect of others take time to earn,
but can be lost in an instant;
if you have 'it' use it to foster trust and self-respect in others.
You have to remember constantly
you are accountable here.
Remind yourself of codes of conduct the legal aspects of your role.
Know your lines -
especially when crossed | STANDARDS.
With your ID have your whistle ready*.
What you do and who you are is a privilege.
Know your scope of practice, but be ready to question it. If you do not the future will.
This domain is the most powerful and neglected to the professional nurse. As a professional what are YOU going to DO here?
The art of leadership is filled with wonder: at what together you can all achieve.
Take stock and ask in Year 1 what are the
legacy issues my seniors are wrestling with?
In years 10 20 30 40 ...
(robotics permitting) repeat and reflect.

... because, being professional means learning and unlearning when the lines are there for a purpose and when they need to be shifted, lifted or plain erased ...
