Reflective Case Study
Write a 2000 word essay which discusses one clinical decision, that you have been involved with
during a Bachelor of Nursing clinical placement, using all eight stages of the clinical reasoning
cycle (Levett-Jones, 2012). ln this essay your critical reflection on the clinical decision (stage
eight) is a significant component of this task (please see weighting in marking criteria). You need
to identify a different patient scenario to the one you discussed in your first essay.
1) Analyse how each stage of the clinical reasoning cycle (Levett-Jones, 2012) was applied
to your decision.
2) ln stage 8 critically reflect on what you have learnt from applying the clinical reasoning
cycle to your chosen decision (you may choose to draw on other models of reflection).
3) ln your essay discuss three relevant Registered Nurse Standards for Practice (2016).
