There is little time to stop, take a breath, put the puzzle pieces together, and formulate a plan. Even for experienced nurses, there is little opportunity to take a time-out to think about the next steps in patient read more... care. However, studies show that incorporating reflection into one's practice is a critical step in becoming an expert nurse. Some compelling findings are found in E. Davies, " Reflective practice: A focus for caring ," published in the Journal of Nursing Education; Jack Mezirow, " On critical reflection ," published in Adult Education Quarterly; and E Shields, " Reflection and learning in student nurses ," published in Nurse Education Today. Kuiper and Pesut, in " Promoting cognitive and metacognitive reflective reasoning skills in nursing practice: Self-regulated learning theory ," published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing, proposed that guided, structured reflection is especially beneficial to the novice practitioner because the necessary skills to analyze nursing practice are not yet in place. There may be a link between improved patient care and reflective practice in complex care situations as explored by Stephen Brookfield in "The concept of critically reflective practice" in the Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education. Reflection narrows the gap between theory and practice according to Lisa Ruth-Sahd, " Reflective practice: A critical analysis of data-based studies and implications for nursing education ," in the Journal of Nursing Education. While exploring this topic, I discovered that the importance of incorporating reflection in learning has been the basis of past education theoretical framework. Reflective thought in learning was first described by none other than educational theorist John Dewey (the developer of that decimal system we all know so well!). In 1910 Dewey shared his belief that the inclusion of a reflective period in an educational exercise is integral to learning the meanings of experiences. He encouraged educators to strategically place reflection within the learning experience. Intrigued by all these studies, the role of reflection in learning became the focus of my research. Using a simulation, my goal was to incorporate an instructor-guided reflective period in the middle of a medical scenario and measure the effect of this on student satisfaction and self-confidence. A simulated medical situation offers an ideal opportunity to incorporate reflection by pausing the action.
