INTRODUCTIONIn this reflective account essay, I will be explaining nursing skills that I embark on duringmy clinical placement, using Driscoll’s (2000) reflective cycle, a distinguished framework forreflection to determine my ability to reflect on different nursing skill. This stand based on thecycles presented by Driscoll’s model. The three processes offered by the model helped me toreflect the individual accomplishment in comparison with the group performance. The model aswell helped me to make adjustments that I will make to enhance my future understanding of thenursing practices. According to Driscoll’s (2000), there are three processes when reflecting onone’s practice.They are: What (what happened), so what (what were you feeling, what was good/badabout the experience and Now what (if it happens again what you would do differently).Therefore, my focus on the model to link theory to the nursing practice.

Practice development seeks to improvepatient experience through new and effective person-centered ways of working but it is stronglyinfluenced by local factors within the team and organization.The outcome that I intend to cover comprise the usefulness of assessment feedback forfacilitating development and for understanding the areas that need to be enhanced in mylearning, the extent of the development of key transferable skills, an overview of meetings withmy personal development skills and issues related to my personal learning. It is also said ‘self-improvement builds on awareness’. Learning is a lifelong method of discovering what is notknown and acknowledgment of learning needs is the basis for further development. NMC(Nursing and Midwifery Council) stated code of conduct and the lifelong learning documentrequires one to be able to identify when further learning and progress may be needed. Therefore,areas for future growth will be established with a view on how to challenge them, all of whichwill go towards improving my personal and indeed professional development. Also, reflective
practice enhances your self-awareness, enhance your problem-solving skills, enhance yourability to action plan for success, learning from observing other people’s practice,developingcritical thinking skills and managing diversity and uncertainty.DRISCOLL’S MODELDriscoll offers trigger questions that can help us think about an experience and develop astrategy for improved practice. Driscoll’s model applies well to situations where we arereflecting on practice or for practice. Driscoll’s model similarly asks three questions: WHAT
