Reflective practice in nursing involves examining in an ongoing and deliberative manner experiences, feelings, biases, decisions and actions. Through reflection you can understand yourself better, learn what you do well and what you need to improve in order to care safely and effectively for other people. Through reflection you can identify what knowledge and skills you need to further develop through ongoing education. This ongoing education extends for the length of your career and is called career long or lifelong learning. This assessment is an introduction to reflection and lifelong learning.GRADUATE LEARNING OUTCOMES
