Appendices 1, 2, 3 represent my improvement in the domain confidently applies [.....] during the last three years. While providing care to John, in my first year, I worked in partnership with John to be involved in his assessment and care planning process. Moreover, I empowered him to make a decision about his care.

Reflection has been strongly advocated by the English National Board for Nursing & Midwifery (1994), United Kingdom Central Council (UKCC) (1996), and a wealth of nursing literature over the past decade to improve nursing practice. Reflection is un doubted an important concept in nursing and since 1994, reflection has succeeded in stimulating debate and investigation, and influencing nursing education around the world. Reflection is an in-depth consideration of events or situations outside of one-self, solitary, or with critical support. Burnard (1995) argues that reflection has its roots in experiential learning, as it forms the second stage of the experiential learning cycle. Active reflection gives nurses the confidence in terms of clinical
Reflective practice is vitally important within healthcare as it equips workers with the tools to learn from personal experiences, whether good or bad. Healthcare professionals are then empowered to develop their professional skills and become more effective and thoughtful workers. Reflective practice enables workers in this field to become far more effective practitioners by reviewing, analysing and improving their performances within their personal work
Reflection, as expressed by Daly, Speedy, and Jackson, "...means to bend or turn backwards." (2014). This leads readers to the understanding of reflection being a critical thought technique of retreating over something after it has as of now happened. The utilisation of reflection to a practice-based discipline, for example, nursing has various critical advantages. Reflective practice is an extremely valuable method for health professionals to guarantee the prosperity of a diverse scope of patients and to enhance the way health professionals work by aiming to make a more proactive and qualified proficient (Dawber, 2012).

The Process of Reflection The process of reflection is central to clinical supervision. Launer (2003) describes external and internal factors in supervision whereby clinical practice and sharing skills are external and reflection is an ‘internal conversation.’ Brunero & Stein-Parbury (2008) discussed the effects of clinical supervision in nursing staff and argued that self-reflection generates a sense of self-awareness and knowledge to the individual. Supervisees or students may be asked what happened during a clinical event, how they felt, the implications of their actions and what they would do differently if faced with the same situation.
The great importance of being prepared for our future role as an advanced practitioner nurse is to enhance our knowledge, the proneness to participate in the new world, and understanding that praxis no only cares for the concern of the facts but also how people involved in such facts, what we can learn from them and assist in their transformation. This means that the practices not only seeks to improve practice nursing but also teach to participate in building the knowledge and thus achieve freedom, independence and autonomy of the profession in the health area (Kagan, Smith, Cowling & Chinn, 2009). As the transformation process is known take time and it requires courage, patient, knowledge, perseverance and professional commitment; so nursing

Johnson & Webber (2010) had introduce the idea that critical thinking as a term that been used over the years as interchangeably with concepts such as decision making, nursing process, problem solving, evaluation, critical analysis, judgment, reflection and reasoning.
w beliefs and practices, nurses must understand patient’s values indicating “both a consistent heritage (traditional) and an inconsistent heritage (acculturated/modern)”(Spector, 2002, p.197). They must connect, listen, and understand that patients can have diverse beliefs regarding their health. Nurse often will find themselves in difficult situations that might disrupt their personal or professional morals. In those situations it is important for the nurse to speak out demonstrating moral courage by advocating for the patient. It will be difficult to completely comprehend some patient’s practices, but it is good to have knowledge on these topics, so they can add their cultural implications into their care plan.
