Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Reflection has become an invaluable tool for nursing students to learn from Practice. This article presents some of the definitions of the concept of reflection and provides some of the reasons as to why nursing students are at times reluctant to engage with this process. It explores the origin of this concept and how it has become of an important part of professional practice. This process allows nursing students to disentangle the various components of professional practice and linking it to the underpinning theories, promoting better understanding and professional growth. This article explores how reflection can be used to facilitate this process and help the transformation of students into safe and competent professionals.
