Reflect on the clinical experiences you’ve had over the past week, and record your thoughts in a document no more than 500 words long.
Your reflection must satisfy these criteria:
- It must be about a client encounter you had this week.
- It must include an analysis of the nurse practitioner role or the potential role in the clinical setting.
- All clinical discussion or communication must protect the confidentiality of clients; your reflection must not use any patient names, ages, or other personal identifiers.
You will not be graded on the experiences you have had, but instead on your commitment to reflecting on those experiences and using those reflections to improve your professional identity and skill set.
Write about a situation in which you felt unsure of yourself. What happened? What made you question your decision making? If faced with the same situation in the future, how would you like to handle it differently?
