Journal Entry Module 1: Identify 3 key points form this module. Reflect on how why each point is important, how it impacts on your work experience or nursing practice, and how will you change your practice in the future based on each key area. Key Point 1 Peer related nursing articles are a key point that I had to refresh my memory during this module. These articles are valuable to me in my career because I am attempting to better my career by joining more groups like Unit Practice council and Shared Governance.
