Critically reflect on self-care as a means to resilience for self or others ontheir team in response to nursing stress,
I have uploaded the full assignment details as a doc. This is a simplified version:
For students to critically reflect on self-care as a means to resilience for self or others on
their team in response to nursing stress, including the relationship of self-care to
professionalism and leadership.
A detailed description of the self-care assignment is on your BB site. Essentially this is a
2 ½ -3 page paper (not including cover page or references) in APA format- an abstract is
not required for a short assignment. The paper should include 3 aspects of critical
reflection on self-care:
N4111 Course Syllabus KF Summer 2019, revised April 2020 KF 8
o Importance of self-care to nursing, with relation to professional practice,
competencies and nursing responsibilities
• So What
o Personal reflections on nursing stressors and resilience
o Leadership reflections on how leader can facilitate self-care
• Now what
o Action plan for self-care maintenance
o Action plan for critical incident
In addition, I have just made a few comments while my instructor has gone over the assignment:
-critical reflection that is ‘going deep’, and integrating literature to build capacity
-Might end with questions or uncertainty
The assignment does not have a minimum amount of sources to use, but it does talk about integrating the class literature into the paper. The links we were given on self care were the following:
Kelly, L. (2020) Burnout, compassion fatigue and secondary trauma in nurses: Recognizing the occupational phenomenon and personal consequences of caregiving. Critical Care Quarterly, 43(1), 73-80.
Lastly; I will add the notes that I have from the class as a word doc as well to ensure that you have all the info you need.
