This method of reflecting on my own personal experiences in a specific set of circumstances promoted thought-provoking questions and ideas. It also helped me to realize the importance of having all the data prior to making a decision on a plan of care. It becomes obvious while attempting to answer questions on case studies when there is not enough information. Case studies are a great way to put yourself into the clinical situation so that as nurses we may have a greater understanding of critical thinking (Asselin, 2012).

Evidenced Based Practice (EBP) is essential to enable all nurses to provide the most current up to date practises for their patients. This process involves research, systematic review of current practises, critical thinking skills, evaluation and application to the clinical setting. In addition to this, the nurse must take into account the patients’ preferences. For nurses to have professional autonomy they must be able to justify their actions and demonstrate an understanding of why they perform the tasks they do. This defines them as unique professionals judged by their knowledge and not simply by their hands on skills.

A healthcare team is made up of many different disciplines. For successful patient outcomes, the teams need to come together, communicate effectively, and be open to new ideas and viewpoints. It is important not only for the nurse to work side-by-side with other nurses, but to collaborate with patients and other professions in the health care system as well. All members of the healthcare team can benefit from the teams different backgrounds and experiences, which results in better care for the patient. In this paper, I will discuss the importance of communication skills, patient and nurse empowerment, and professional development.
As nurses, we do not only represent ourselves as nurses, but the company we work for as a whole. To be able to step forward in becoming successful in our nursing career, we must evaluate
