The QSEN has initiated a taskforce to focus on nursing research to improve the quality of nursing education.

Reflection is an essential component in the development of professional competencies and critical thinking skills in nursing practice. Reflection in the context of nursing, has been described as a way of exploring an experience in order to look for the prospect of other explanations and alternative methods to doing things. It is through reflection that one can evaluate and identify their strengths and weaknesses to encourage both personal and professional growth and development.

Professional organizations aid in generating ideas, establishing and maintaining the trust of society, and they work proactively to uphold a healthy profession. To ensure nurses are maintaining a greater status in healthcare, professional organizations need to continue to provide education to all professional nurses, members or not, as well as to society (Matthews, 2012). Education constantly leads to new information. Education should focus on working with nursing professionals as well as legislators on how to continue to advocate for the nursing profession and to find new respects to support and strengthen healthcare. In addition, being apart of a professional organization provides opportunities for professional growth and development in the nursing profession, allowing nurses the opportunity to have a voice.
One extract focuses on the process of clinical assessment and it begins by highlighting the significance of its application in the nursing practice. This significance has been emphasized in my studies as we have been gaining knowledge in preparation for our OSCA examinations and I am aware that we will continue building upon these skills throughout the remainder of this course. The most commonly used frameworks for nursing assessments are described in the text, and this information is a valuable foundation for me to refer to in future practice. The ability to assess a patient effectively will be vital in practicing as a nurse, so this knowledge is valuable for me to refer to. Assessment is ongoing and continuous in the nursing process; and involves a comprehensive collection of objective and subjective information in regards to the physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual aspects of the patient.
My personal philosophy of nursing revolves around making this professional experience fulfilling for both myself and the patient through the realization of values and personal beliefs. To make nursing a fulfilling experience involves the continuous search for knowledge in the practice of nursing in order to improve the profession and benefit the patient. In the practice of nursing, the patient is the main center of attention. Therefore, the goal of nursing is to optimize the health of the patient through the continuum of health care. All efforts should be channeled towards achieving the patient’s well-being, providing quality care, and managing and treating the underlying disease condition.
