Students are required to keep an account of their clinical learning experience in a journal entry. Students are required to reflect on three issues they experienced related to their specific area of practice. Examples of clinical experiences that student can reflect upon will include at least three themes as follows, but are not limited to: meeting the educational needs of the patients, families and significant others; functioning as a nurse in a multidisciplinary health care team, communication problems with colleagues/clients/clients’ families; clinical issues and ethical dilemmas. Students need to follow Gibb’s cycle when they are writing reflective journals.
In the journal, students will also identify their clinical objectives to achieve an understanding of an advanced level of nursing practice. These objectives should be clearly stated in the introduction of the journal. Students will evaluate the achievement of the objectives and critically analyse and reflect on the experiences of their practice based on current literature.
