My Culture is my identity and undoubtedly, my personality. It not only gives me spiritual, intellectual but also emotional divergence from others. Culture is the shared characteristics of a group of people based on either religion, language, music, literature, or geographical land. A culture may be small or extensive, however, each culture can teach us about ourselves, others and the global community.
I was born and brought up in Punjab state of India. It is one of the countries which has diverse cultures and a land of different communities. According to me, being an Asian inhabitant, I belong to the high context culture. It is a matter of fact that I am absolutely relational, contemplative, intuitive, and collectivist. In other words, I respect and tend to indulge myself in groups and take decision keeping in mind their consideration. I practice group duties and value them. I always believe in leading in a group and facing prosperity and obstacles with my peers.
Undoubtedly, managing time is important but the group I belong in to is observed to value time often less than other cultures like that of North America. I tend to consider time with a relaxed attitude. Because of my culture and the ethics I have acquired residing in there, I along with my peers indulge in formality and paternalistic power relationships. Asians are believed to rely on nonverbal cues to communicate in society including figures of speech and I don’t have difficulty in saying no.
I can improve my communication aspects in my work environment by interacting with people belonging to diverse cultures, by adopting their cultures, by respecting their beliefs and differences. Curbing Ethnocentrism is another way to develop and maintain healthy and formal work and environment relationships. Another ways to enhance communications among cultures is by avoiding prejudice, practicing oral communications and body language including hand gestures, eye moments and facial expressions.

My Self-Assessment in the Nursing Profession and How this Helped in the Improvement of Attention to Detail and Compassion Self-assessment, in the nursing context, is moment-to-moment self-monitoring.

Every week throughout the semester our class has been asked to complete several self-assessments and miniature simulations. Many of these self-assessments pertain to specific skills that are crucial not only in the workplace, but also in our day to day life.
