Journaling allows students to express thoughts and feelings regarding aspects of the weekly clinical experience. It is not an account of tasks performed but rather a way of one-to-one communication with your instructor of your innermost feelings about your day of patient care. It is difficult for instructors to recognize all challenges or successes that a student might experience. Your journal offers the instructor a chance to give you support through feedback.
During this course you will keep a self-reflective journal. Entries are to be made at the beginning and at the end of the course using the Journal Tool in D2L.
You are required to submit 2 journals:
For journal #2: due week 8
- Create an entry that synthesizes and identifies the key components of the course for you.
- Discuss how this will be implemented into your new role as an advanced practice nurse.
- Identify challenges you encountered with the course, or course content.
- Identify 2-4 positive or negative thoughts, feelings, or emotions that occurred as a result of any knowledge and practice change that you have experienced at the end of the course
