What is a reflective writing and why is it important?
Reflective writing can help you think critically about experiences from your nursing practice. Reflective writing benefits from using an appropriate reflective cycle to structure how to write about a scenario/situation and will help you consider, in depth, what you learned from the experience.
Reflection consists of thinking critically about an experience and learning from it by:
- Outlining a scenario/situation that you have experienced from placement.
- Processing the significant features and identifying the need for new learning.
- Finding new solutions to dilemmas.
- Using the process as a tool to identify what you learned from the experience and help you develop future practice by considering what you would do next time the situation arose.
Reflective writing is important because it:
- Helps you keep a record for the future on how you felt about an experience before, during and after the event.
- Provides a way of continually develop your critical thinking and writing skills
- Allows you to relate your experiences to the perspectives of others
- Enables you to develop analytic abilities and evaluative judgement that can enhance employability.

How can reflective writing be structured?
We have structured this summative assessment using Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle, but there are many others that you can use in practice (Nicol and Dosser, 2016).Â Â The use of a reflective cycle will help you to organise your thoughts so you can critically evaluate the ethical dilemma into a coherent piece of writing.Â This approach will help you produce writing that is more analytical and will help you think about what you have learned from the experience.
