Week 2 Assignment: Reflective Essay

Guidelines with Scoring Rubric

Purpose

Nursing knowledge is classified in a variety of ways, one of which is Carper’s Patterns of Knowing (Carper, 1978).  Carper’s framework offers a lens through which the nurse can reflect upon insights acquired through empirical, ethical, personal, and aesthetic knowledge (Carper, 1978).  Through intentional reflection using Carper’s Patterns of Knowing, nurses can process experiential learning and knowledge acquired through practice.  The purpose of this assignment is to reflect upon a specific practice situation and better understand the professional knowledge and insights obtained through that experience. 

 

Course Outcomes

Through this assessment, the student will meet the following Course Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate logical and creative thinking in the analysis and application of theory to nursing practice. (CO #1)
  • Examine broad theoretical concepts as foundational to advanced nursing practice roles. (CO #3)
