, reflective practice is a CNO requirement for maintaining nursing registration. The process of reflective practice consists of the active, careful consideration of a belief or knowledge that can be derived from learning from experience” (Yoder-Wise, 2020, p. 366). Individual reflective practice as a nurse is one of the foundational skills that must be developed and practised to cultivate competent, thoughtful, and quality patient care. Reflection also allows nurses to grow, mature and improve their own nursing practice, supports healthcare leadership and places the patient at the center of all care objectives. This assignment is designed to provide you with an opportunity to further develop the skill of critical reflection with the purpose of utilizing best evidence to strengthen your own nursing practice and shed light on beliefs or values that can impact nursing care. You will reflect on a clinical experience from your current practicum and utilize the LEARN format to formulate your reflective thoughts. Since you will be submitting clinical reflective journals for your practicum, you will be able to use this reflection to fill in your weekly reflective journal.
