Overview

"This book is part of the Transforming Nursing Practice series, written specifically to support students on pre-registration nursing programmes." "Reflection enables us to make sense of, and learn from, experiences that can sometimes seem uncertain, chaotic or even mundane. It is a core skill that nurses need to acquire in order to learn from practice and develop professionally, and as such it is a key requirement of the NMC Standards." "This book introduces student nurses to reflection in a clear and practical manner. It explores what it means to become a reflective practitioner and why this is important for professional practice. It shows different ways of using reflection and helps readers to explore their personal, as well as professional, experiences to help make sense of practice. It gives practical tips on using reflection throughout pre-registration programmes and empowers the student nurse to take ownership of their learning by developing this important skill." "Key Features:" "Linked to the latest NMC Standards and Essential Skills Clusters" "Scenarios and case studies link the theory of reflection to its successful practice" "Activities help to build confidence in using reflection." "About the series" "Transforming Nursing Practice links theory with practice, in the context of the skills and knowledge needed by student nurses to be fit for future healthcare delivery. Each book has been designed to help students meet the requirements of the NMC Standards of Education, Essential Skills Clusters and other relevant competencies. They are accessible and challenging, and provide regular opportunities for active and reflective learning. Each book will ensure that students learn the central importance of thinking critically about nursing." "Series editors:" Dr Shirley Bach, Head of the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Brighton and Dr Mooi Standing, Principal Lecturer and Quality Lead in the Department of Nursing and Applied Clinical Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Editorial Reviews

Caroline E Gibson

This book has been adopted within a year 2 module where students are required to complete a reflective assignment. The book helps the students to critically reflect in their assignments and move away from simple description. I particularly appreciated the chapter on guided reflection and reflecting with others as it echoes the module of supervision that we use in the programme when we have placement based meetings.

Paul Watson
Reflective Practice in Nursing aims to make sense of, experiences that can sometimes seem uncertain, chaotic or even mundane to practitioners expected to reflect upon their own work and given situations. This book introduces nurses to reflection in a clear and practical manner, explaining what reflection is, why it is so important to nursing practice and the different types of reflection that can be used to help make sense of practice.
