4.1. Weekly Reflection

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.

Write about a continuing situation that began earlier in your clinical. How has the situation evolved since you first faced it? What have you done to guide the relationship? What interventions or strategies have you tried? What is the current outcome? What are your goals with this patient?
