In the educational curriculum for nursing students, the focus has been to present problem-based learning and evidence-based practice concepts to help increase critical thinking skills. Critical thinking is the foundation in nursing to provide
Introduction “Mentoring is an important role that every nurse has to assume, formally or informally, sooner or later in their professional life”. (Ali,Pa &Parther,W, 2008) While considering mentorship as a way of progression in the profession, it is important for the nurse to think critically and objectively about what the role entails. Nurses who are considering becoming involved in student supervision and mentorship in any clinical setting should have knowledge of the importance of mentorship, its process and basic principles. Which brings me to the purpose of this assignment. It is to critically analyse and reflect upon an innovative approach to learn in the clinical environment.
The integration of technologies simulation into the curriculum of the nursing education provides benefits for the student and the faculty related to improvement of the competencies and patient safety. The teaching strategies of simulation provide to enhance the confidence and communication among the nursing students. In addition, clinical simulation provides to improve skills and goals for each clinical setting (Cannon & Boswell, 2016). Although, simulation have demonstrated to enhance in the students the levels of cognitive, affective and psychomotor. (Curl, 2016).
First, educational strategies can help encourage the practice of evidence-based nursing. For instance, nurses and medical students can be introduced to evidence-based practice, where they get to learn and adapt to the skill; hence perfect their expertise on the topic matter. Moreover, nurses should be allowed to access evidence-based resources to improve their knowledge and enquire more often about how to better the services in healthcare (Conner, 2014). Additionally, the clinical facilities should accommodate practice strategies that foster evidence-based nursing practices. For instance, healthcare facilities should establish Nursing Practice Councils and research centers that will help foster quality research in the amenities.
How do health providers design educational programs to clearly articulate objectives to engage both patients as well as families? A learning objective is a statement of what the learner will know, understand, or be able to do as a result of engaging in a learning activity. Well-written learning objectives are essential to building a strong foundation in the development of training materials. In order to develop effective learning objectives the nurse should fully assess the learning needs, abilities, preferences, and readiness to learn of all those expected to participate in the specific learning activity. This might include anybody that is an active participant in the patient 's life and anybody included in the patient 's health care plan such as patient, spouse, other family member and caregiver.
During these tutoring sessions, I facilitated small group activities emphasizing critical learning by conducting lessons encompassing a series of skill building activities in reading and writing. Moreover, tutoring heightened my skills in lesson planning, development of interactive modules, and verbalizing feedback to students. Together these skills enable me to strategically design sessions tailored to meeting an individual’s needs, which is transferrable across numerous disciplines. Having this experience and obtaining these skills has provided a foundation that will contribute to the development as an impressionable clinician. This experience relates so closely to the field of speech-language pathology as I will be developing goals and activities for future clients, as well as providing verbal feedback that is specific and reinforces
A practice placement portfolio is a collection of work by an individual which is used as evidence to show achievements and other learning that has taken place to enhance their professional development (Hayes E. 2013). It has an important role in the educational development of nursing students as it is a tool which can evaluate the student’s learning during the undergraduate programme and can act as a link between theory and practice (Jones E. 2010). It enables them to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have developed throughout their training, as it makes them engage fully with their experiences from clinical practice which are valuable sources of learning (Joyce P. 2005, Ryan M. 2011). In the professional development of a qualified
Introduction/Description The purpose of this essay is to deliver a reflective account of the learning and educating actions required to change a stoma bag. A third year student carried out the actions required to complete the task within a ward setting. The Royal College of Nursing (RCN), 2015 describe reflection as a process where nurses are given the opportunity to reflect on significant events that have taken place and explore their knowledge and practical skills in an objective way. Using analysis and evaluating the nurses actions, provides a learning opportunity, allowing future practice to be improved including professional development and patient safety (Nursing and Midwifery Council, (NMC) 2015). For this assignment, Gibbs (1988) reflective framework will be used.
The theory’s first stage is the attention phase and requires students to pay attention to the skill which is being taught in an environment that is conducive for and provides the necessary condition needed for learning to occur. As the expert nurse educator demonstrates the skill while students’ pay attention by observing what the instructor is demonstrating; this can be seen as role modeling. Therefore, an expert educator demonstrates competently the techniques associated with oral administration of medication; clearly, it is important that student nurses observe this procedure being done. In addition, another important determiner when paying attention has to do with the students’ goals, self-esteem, and competence; all these components are acted upon as each student processes the
Literature Review The purpose of this literature review is to garner information about nursing student’s perception of nursing and identify factors influencing readiness for the profession. Perception as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary (2010) is characterized by ones awareness and understanding of sensory information attained through interaction between past experiences and one’s own culture and interpretation of the perceived. Nursing students’ perception of nursing has been influenced greatly by various factors and these factors initiate readiness for the nursing profession. Apesoa-Varano (2007) states that nursing perception and professionalism is plethoric. Students enter the nursing programme with the belief that nursing evolve
