Personal knowingis hard to measure and define precisely in my opinion. I believe it is one’s know-how, ethics, compassion all mixed in one. It is because of one’s personal knowing that one wouldl pursue professional development and advancement in our profession. It takes someone with a good personal knowledge to understand the positive effect of investing in one’s self not only professionally but also personally. Clinical and theoretical experience is an example of personal knowing, they complement each other.

In my practice I have two qualities that comes to mind and stand out, I, as well as some colleagues, have noticed: I tend to remain calm in stressful and urgent situations, and I am good at starting IVs. My qualities reflect some of my personal knowledge because I attribute being calm in stressful situations and being able to start IVs as a result of my experience and professional knowledge. I was lucky to be thought mostly in a safe, non-threatening environment, which caused a positive effect in my learning (Little, 2006, p. 135).

In addition, I also consider myself an expert in some nursing tasks, which causes me to have more confidence and in turn creates a quality interpersonal contact favorable for patient flourishment (Little, 2006, p. 135; Polifroni & Welsh, 1999, p.18).

On the other hand my two weakness are my accent and not being able to cut someone off without coming off as rude. Because English is my second language, I talk with an accent and that becomes a weakness when I have to time manage my patients and speak fast. The words mash together, and the accent sometimes makes it hard for someone to understand me. The same goes when a patient starts telling me his or her life story and I have other more urgent tasks to take care of. I always feel bad cutting them of because if it were another day I would love to hear their stories.

Well, coming to think of it, my weaknesses float around the time management area. I should take my time and be in the moment with each patient while at the same time allocating a fair amount of time to all of them. Maybe nursing theory can help me by applying certain tasks to my routine that would benefit the patient as well as myself as a practitioner.
