I hate GIBB's reflective cycle 1988" (Facebook? 2009): registered nurses experiences of supporting students' reflective practice in the context of nursing students' public commentary. (2013)

Abstract This paper presents findings regarding nurses? views of their support of nursing student's reflections during clinical placement and their assessment. Descriptive survey data were collected using the Assessment of Clinical Practice Questionnaire (McCarthy & Murphy, 2008), a 24-item validated questionnaire from 163 nurses, currently supervising undergraduate student nurses in Ireland. Findings reveal that overall nurses are reasonably well prepared for their assessor role and are happy to carry it out. However, direct supervision of student reflection is inconsistent. The results of the study show that nursing students? reflections need to be more closely supervised by nurses in practice, and nurses require further additional training in order to more fully support reflective practice. Additionally, ways of encouraging students to engage more fully in the process need to be explored
