The reflection process begins with thinking about an incident and how the situation can be utilised in future situations. The process consists of being open, this would involve an individual looking at things from a different perspective. In addition, the process would involve being inquisitive, desiring knowledge. With reflection it is important that the individual is honest, which needs to be reflected in written record keeping, this enables others to easily understand what has occurred (Williams et al, 2012). Reflective practice is mainly used to assist nurses and healthcare professionals to gain an
I've learned that even though the language is sometimes different, the feelings and emotions are the same. Seeing how brave and stoic some patients can be in a time of pain and uncertainty is truly humbling. I am grateful for the exposure I've had to the vastly different people I help care for at work. I believe it has made me a better person, and I now know what it means to learn something from every interaction. I hope to bring this diverse learning experience to the UA COM and collaborate with fellow classmates to help keep peoples minds open and to approach every patient with the mindset of not only healing but learning something from
Thank you for the opportunity to work at D1 Therapy and learn from you and the other therapists. I am really grateful for the experience I had with you and everyone else. All of you provided me with valuable skills and lessons that I will take with me to physical therapy school or any profession I may pursue. The compassion that you and the other therapist show for your patients is admirable and something I strive to model. Personally and professionally, I have grown from my experience at your clinic, and the time spent there has been so valuable to me as I continue on my professional journey.
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). Following an analysis of literature, benefits of reflective practice for registered nurses (RN's) were outlined. These benefits
It is a profession in which teamwork between healthcare providers is essential to provide safe and appropriate care to all patients. I believe that nursing is a profession for me, and will continue to expand my knowledge as a nurse by educating myself, growing from past nursing opportunities, applying knowledge, and learning from patients and their families. My vision is to continue to develop my knowledge and grow as a nurse. As I continue to grow and learn about nursing, I believe that my philosophy will evolve with every new experience and will positively impact the client population. I trust that my philosophy of nursing will have a positive impact on my clients as my goal is to consistently provide competent, safe nursing care to all which is culturally safe.
In the following paragraphs, the grand theory of Jean Watson will be explored for its usefulness in practice. We will explore how the theory is congruent with current nursing standards and nursing interventions. Next, we will study if her theory has been tested empirically, if it is supported by research and if it is accurate. We will explore if there is evidence that her theory has been used by nursing educators, researchers, and nursing administrators. Then we will study how her theory is relevant socially and cross-culturally.

The APTA core value areas in which I need the most growth are excellence and professional duty. I expect to become more knowledgeable in these areas through clinical experiences, collaborative learning with physical therapy educators and students, as well as through integrated learning from other health care professionals. As I work more with patients, I will benefit from my strengths in compassion and accountability, as well as in the related core values of altruism, social responsibility and integrity that I feel relatively strong in. My strengths in active listening will contribute to my ability to integrate and critically think about multiple sources of information related to excellence in the physical therapy practice. I hope to learn
My role is to hand out beverages to the patients, and talk to them. This is important as it boosts their morale. I regularly volunteer on the maternity and gynaecology ward, and have experience on many other wards. This has given me an insight into the roles of different health professionals, and witness part of the process of midwifery. From this I have become more confident and comfortable in a hospital setting, and have a greater awareness of current NHS practices.
We learned about each other’s lives, and I was now more confident and better able to communicate with him. As I look back, my interaction with Robert taught me about values important to him– autonomy, companionship, and creative expression. I realize these were the same values that united us, and attracted me to medicine. By the time he was
I care about providing the best holistic healthcare I possibly can for my patients through evidence-based practice. I respect individuals’ race, socioeconomic class, gender, and sexual orientation. I work well with others and I strive to help create a good working environment where people can communicate, ask questions, learn new information, and feel respected. With this New Graduate Nurse Residency Program, I hope to be exposed to many different clinical situations. I hope to further develop my clinical leadership skills and to gain new knowledge.
This program emphasizes team-based learning by allowing us to collaborate in teams to discuss and complete assignments. Learning from each other helps us get deep and enduring understanding of topics. As a part of this program, I interact with people from different parts of the world. These teamwork and communication skills I am learning here will be of great help during my residency. I am looking for a residency program where I can indulge my intellectual curiosity and immerse myself in the study of Internal Medicine.
The ability to use various resources is an important aspect of providing safe care, while simultaneously basing the care on an evidence based practice. In this regard, it allows the student FNP to become confident in making decisions in the interest of the patient. This is a great learning experience to carry forth in the subsequent courses. As we continue to build the necessary knowledge base, there will be times of frustration that will get translated into success. In this class, we had the opportunity to gain value information that has provided a substantial foundation as an FNP.
