N3375 Health Policy & Legal Aspects Reflective Journal

Overview: Reflective Journal

Each week you will make an entry into your Journal. You are asked to reflect on 3 of the key points for each class. Key points: What did you take away from the module knowledge wise or interesting? Each entry should reflect on your understanding of the topic, your experiences and observations in your work environment or general nursing environment regarding the module topic.

This is a cumulative document. You will save it to your own computer desktop or memory device and update it each week. You may choose to record more than one entry each week, especially if you have an “aha!” moment as a result of your reading, discussions, or experience. You will upload and submit the latest version of your Health Policy & Legal Aspects Reflective Journal to Blackboard by 2359 the Saturday following each class of this course. It is not necessary that your entries be formatted or written in any particular way because it is for your benefit . Your entries will only be reviewed to ensure that you are making sufficient progress and thinking deeply about the requirements in the course.

Rubrics:

Use this rubric to guide your Journal entries.

There will be total of 3 Journal entries. With each journal you are expected to address 3 key points from the class lecture, discussion, and content, discuss how each point applies to your practice as a nurse, and, finally, how will your practice change in the future because of this information.

You must record one entry each week, but may record more (insert rows as needed). You may find it helpful and rewarding to record one entry at the beginning of the week, think about the prompt during the week, and then record another at the end of the week. For privacy, refer to patients, online colleagues, and/or co-workers with initials instead of names. Remember you must support your key points with cited references.

Save this document to your own computer desktop or storage device after each entry to create a cumulative journal.
