Abstract:

Poster presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, Monday, November 18, 2013

Fear of self-reflection can lead to hesitancy to focus on self-development or personal/professional transformation. Strength originating from commitment to self and the profession of nursing can motivate novice and experienced educators, administrators and clinicians to self-reflect and continue development and transformation. If a nurse can be self-reflective, there is a greater likelihood that he/she will be authentic. Self-reflection has been shown to be valuable for improving both nursing practice and teaching. In clinical, administrative, and academic practice settings, major outcomes from reflection may include awareness of personal strengths and need for development, enhancement of critical thinking skills and clinical reasoning that allow for changes in approaches to care delivery or teaching, and greater skill in communication. This presentation will focus on the self-development skills of reflection regarding personal and professional behaviors. The information provided in this presentation will encourage nurse educators, administrators and clinicians to seek opportunities to self-reflect in order to consider or reconsider points of view, to dialogue with others and then to choose to commit to particular actions, possibly integrating transformative learning principles and approaches into their  practices.
