Nursing Reflective Journal

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need support to help me learn.

Write a reflection on a client’s healthcare issues (comorbidities), you have observed in your clinical setting, that makes them susceptibility to contracting COVID. State the importance of primary care in promoting health prevention activities that would minimize the healthcare issue identified. Did you observe any racial/ethnic/cultural differences in the diagnosis of the healthcare issues of the client and were there any similarities or differences to your culture?

Include in your reflection on your nursing answers to the 2 questions below.

  1. How did you come to know yourself?
  2. How did you come to know the other?

In answering the two questions above, reflect on the client’s culture and identify any similarities or differences between the client’s and your culture. Also, did these similarities or differences help your ability to know self and others.

This is a model to help guide reflection through ways of knowing

Reflective Ways of Knowing

What was I trying to achieve, and did I respond effectively? Aesthetics
What were the consequences of my actions on the patient, others and myself? Aesthetics
What factors influenced the way I was feeling, thinking or responding? Personal
What knowledge informed or might have informed me? Empirics
To what extend did I act for the best and in tune with my values?
How does this situation connect with previous experiences? Reflexivity
How might I respond more effectively given this situation again?
What would be the consequences of alternative actions for the patient, others and myself?
How do I NOW feel about this experience?
Am I more able to support myself and others as a consequence?
Am I more able to realize desirable practice monitored using caring science as framing perspectives, Carper’s fundamental ways of knowing , Mayeroff’s ingredients of caring, knowing, Roach’s 6 C’s, the College of Nursing Philosophy?
