Reflective Practice in Nursing

Reflective Practice in Nursing The Growth of the Professional Practitioner Edited by Sarah Burns and Chris Bulman (Blackwell Science Ltd.)

“Nursing is a practice focused, hands-on profession and the ability to learn from experience is essential for nurses to develop practice. Reflection is a valuable way in which nurses can analyze and evaluate practice experience to enable them to learn from it.

Reflective Practice in Nursing — The Growth of the Professional Practitioner is a book about learning from experience. This second edition responds to the interest amongst nurses to master the skills of reflective practice. It offers a motivating and accessible text that documents and analyzes the increase in knowledge and skills surrounding the subject. Fundamentally the book does not assume any previous knowledge about reflection and aims to provide a text of practical use to those wanting to learn about reflection and what it may have to offer them.”
