“A vital part of the reflective process is to plan for changes in your behavior.”
— Somerville & Keeling, 2004.
Being a reflective practitioner enables NPs to identify weaknesses and target professional development in order to address these weaknesses. In turn, this increases the NPs’ ability to provide the best care to patients and their families. Reflection also affords the NP time to consider communication and their efforts toward creating a culture of mutual support with colleagues, a characteristic that is essential to successful NP practice (Somerville & Keeling, 2004).
Each week you will reflect on your Practicum Experiences and how they relate to your Professional Goals and Self-Assessment of Clinical Skills.
