Personal Philosophy Statement

Patient care is complex system that is delivered by a multidisciplinary team. Its success requires perfect harmony between the all the involving members. It is vital that the care we deliver as healthcare professional is patient – centered. Therefore, it is important to know the population that we are serving, its needs and its cultural background. In the United States more than any other country, healthcare providers should develop their cultural awareness and competence.

The stigma around the mental illness and the quality of treatment that mentally ill individuals receive have inspired me to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP). I have felt the necessity to stand up and do what is right as my contribution to fix this urgent issue. In our society, physical or medical diseases provoke empathy, but we demonstrate disdain for people impacted by mental conditions. Like we always say, “See it and fix it”. So, passivity is as wrong as the wrong doing.

As a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, I will have the opportunity to care for a multicultural population with different conceptions or point of view about mental health. It is my role and responsibility to understand the cultural differences and provide support to those in need. I have learned that in the healthcare system, we should not be judgmental. My personal philosophy is to treat each and every patient as I would like to be treated. It is a moral obligation to use my knowledge to serve and educate individuals in my community. As a healthcare professional, I believe that I have the capability to change to way mentally ill individuals are viewed and treated. Through my philosophy, I will be able to advocate for holistic and empathic care for individuals with mental health conditions.

Self – Assessment

I have decided to transition from registered nurse (RN) to psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) to better serve my community. So, I have always said and believe that the more someone has the he/she can give. When I decided to go back to school to pursue my goal, I said to myself “I have to choose one of the best schools”. Finally, I have chosen Walden University that I believe meet my expectations. For my Practicum, I have chosen the Compass Health System which has been established in the South Florida since 1990, and it is well respected in the community. They offer their services through their offices and most of the hospital with mental health crisis. They are one the major teaching facilities in mental health in the South Florida.

I have selected preceptors who have been working with Compass Health System for several years. So, they acquired a very solid experience in the field. I have taken great advantage of their experience to strengthen my assessment skills to evaluate children adolescents and adults with mental health issues. Because they see patients in office and hospitals, I have been able to learn different approaches for individuals in crisis and non-crisis setting. I have built confidence in my ability to appropriately evaluate, diagnose and treat patient using pharmacologic therapy and non-pharmacologic therapy. I have no doubt in my mind that I am ready to deliver holistic and empathic care for individuals in my community regardless of their cultural background.

Jackson Memorial Hospital

1005, 1611 NW 12th Ave,Miami, FL 33136Dear Marie Jones,My name is Toussaint Casimir, board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner. As I was always fascinated by the mission of your prestigious institution, so I found this opening position for an experienced and dedicated Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner a welcoming opportunity. Even though I have been recently graduated as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I have two long years and half of experiences working with mental health patients as a registered nurse. Before I transitioned to the mental health, I started my career of nursing in a “respiratory care unit” at Memorial Healthcare system. During my two years and half of mental health experience in 40 – bed locked unit, I have learned the appropriate time to initiate communication with patients in crises, how to convey empathy and develop trustworthy relationship with patients, how to assess and accurately produce the mental status evaluation, and to provide a safe environment not only for patients but also for all staff. Thanks to my background, I strongly believe that I can contribute to the success of your institution. I urge you to have a close look to the following skills and qualities that your institution can benefit by hire over any other candidate: Over the time, I have strived to become as culturally sensitive and competent as a healthcare provider can be. Furthermore, I speak and write fluently English, Spanish, French and Haitian creole. I have learned to deliver the best quality of care to individuals enduring all sorts of mental health conditions, like PTSD, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, dementia, and anxiety. I have learned to be a leader, a team player, a great communicator, and an advocate for the cause of the voiceless. Achieving a Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Mental Health Nursing from the Walden university has strengthen problem-solving, critical thinking abilities. And, through a full year of practicum with highly respected and experienced doctors, I have learned to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with all kinds of mental health disorders. I greatly value the interest that you have demonstrated in my profile. I hope I can be considered for an interview to better explain at what extent I can contribute to the success of your institution. And, I am looking forward to learning more about your expectations. Feel free to contact me at your convenience through my cellphone: 786-991-3495 or email: Best regards, Toussaint Casimir

To whom it may concern

I am delighted to recommend Mr. Toussaint Casimir for a position of psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner at your institution. During my career as professor at Miami Dade College Mr. Casimir has been one of the students, I ever have in my NUR 3069. I personally encouraged him to become member of the PHI THETA KAPPA honor society.

I have known Mr. Casimir as a very dedicated, disciplined, respectful, responsible and with a high sense of integrity and initiative. Thanks to his high degree of responsibility, he was able to manage successfully work, school and his family’ obligation. Despite the role he plays in his family, he demonstrated great flexibility to work with his advisors and participate actively in group assignments.

Mr. Casimir has all the qualities of an ideal employee. He has been always respectful of the rules, punctual, team player, organized and details oriented. He has always demonstrated great sense of leadership by supervising other students in labs and clinicals. Moreover, he has always volunteer to share his knowledge and understanding of subjects with his peers. I strongly believe that your institution would benefit from his optimism, his motivation, and commitment to nursing.

To sum up, I highly recommend that you consider giving a chance to Mr. Casimir to join your organization. And, I strongly believe that your patients would benefit from his sense of compassion, selfless, empathy and tolerance. If necessary, feel free to contact me using my contact information below.

Best regards,

To whom it may concern,

It is a great privilege to recommend Mr. Toussaint Casimir for a position at your organization. I am very proud to say that I am the first one to offer him an opportunity as a new grad.

I interviewed Mr. Casimir among several other nurses, and most of them with previous nursing experiences. But, Mr. Casimir convinced me that he was the right person for the job. I was impressed by his ability to communicate and the language that he used to convey his message. Even though he was a new nurse, he demonstrated great understanding of the role he had to play in our nursing team.

I never regret a bit the choice I made when I hired him. I felicitate myself for being able to recognize a talent when see it. Mr. Casimir is an easygoing person, highly motivated, dedicated and responsible. It was with heartbreaking when we had to let him go due to his familial obligation.

I highly recommend that you give him a chance to sell himself through and interview, and you will be able to get your own opinion. I am at your disposition, so you can reach at your convenience through my phone: 954-303-9170 or via email:
