Reflective Paper:Word limit: 1000 words
Guideline for reflective journal Reflection and reflective practice are widely used in the nursing literature and this method can bridge the gap between theory and practice and of developing and articulating tacit knowledge (Hillerik, 2012). Reflection in practice is the process that involves recalling thought and memories to make sense of a significant event, so that necessary changes to teaching practice are identified and recommended (Bagay, 2012; Coutts, 2014). The purpose of this reflective journal is to provide students with the opportunity to do personal reflection on the issues related to current nursing knowledge and practice learnt in this course. Critical analyses with logical arguments in the reflective paper are crucial. The paper documents the students’ reflective thinking and learning that has taken place, and the feelings they have experienced in the entire learning process. The objective is to allow students to be able to reflect on the learning experience of issues related to nursing knowledge and practice from the course as well as the group project.
