professional development is a cornerstone component of nursing
practice, and as such, early integration of professional
development habits and strategies is key to excellence in nursing
practice. In this paper, I will reflect on my own professional
development, explore my role as a mentor, apply
Banduras nursing theory to my practice, and set future goals.
Professional Reflection Paper
I have experience significant growth and increased awareness regarding professional development this semester and over the past three years. The decision to enter nursing school was not one that I was fully confident in when I started out, but what I have realized is that at the very least the skills and ways of thinking I have learned will serve me well should I ever decide to pursue another career path. On reflection, it is heartening to see how far I have come (see Appendix B).
My experience working with my first-year buddy was more stressful than I had anticipated it would be. I had expectations of the relationship based on my buddy experience in semester five that were not even remotely close to my experience in this course, namely, that my buddy would be enthusiastic and easy to engage through the process. Ultimately, I found that I had very little contact with my first-year student and my role did show more content
After a long period of silence in an effort to solicit a reply, I ccd both of our instructors in an email to my buddy. The email took upwards of half an hour to compose, as I did not want to come across overbearing or righteous, however when I finally closed out of the email I found that she had replied to a previously unanswered email. While I dont regret escalating issues as needed, next time I will solicit more than one means of contacting my buddy so that I can explore other avenues of communication
