Schön, (1992), had describes two types of reflection, which is reflection in action and reflection on action. Reflection in action is important for expert nurses to avoid becoming ‘stale’ or bored and preventing burn out. Reflection in action is the hawk in our mind constantly circling over our head watching and advising on our actions while we are practicing.
