Having two toddlers at home led me to the decision of staying home and caring for them at this time. So I couldn’t have come across a better timing even if I tried. Since I am at home with my babies, I decided to attain my bachelor’s degree. Don’t get me wrong, just cause I’m home does not mean I have free time, but I know if I don’t do it now, I never will. I also want to continue learning since I will not be putting my knowledge to good use with any patients at this time. So here I am now, ready and excited to continue my education.

Some concerns I have about completing this program are time management and writing papers. Without a doubt, I need to start planning my days and schedule time to complete my assignments. This is something that I have always wanted to do but never did time for it. I think that is the best way to be successful throughout my courses. As for writing papers, it has been a while since I did any, but I will try my best and learn from my mistakes as I go. I will also take advantage of the resources available to achieve a good grade in my course.

One strategy I will be implementing from 7 Habits of Highly Effective Nursing Student is becoming proactive. I tend to push until the end because of prioritizing care for my family. I will definitely be doing more delegating around my house. This will help me become more efficient at doing my assignments ahead of time. Therefore allowing enough time to ask questions if need be. This will be less stressful rather than waiting till the end.

According to the Plagiarism Tutorial, “Plagiarism is defined as the use of another person’s thoughts, ideas, words, quotations, or phrases without showing proper acknowledgement of where the information came from”. Three examples of plagiarism are using insufficient citations, copying another person’s work, or using their ideas as your own.  I believe that plagiarism affects the integrity of the baccalaureate degree by devaluing the degree because institutions may think of the degree as easy to accomplish by just copying someone else’s work. Patients often look to nurses for guidance, knowledge and recommendations. If we as nurses do not take the time to really learn and understand medical material, how would we be able to teach and guide our patients? Plagiarism also affects evidence-based practices, because if nurses practice what is considered best practice, but do not take the time to really examine, question and critically think about the outcomes, they may not catch flaws in the system in order to make improvements. It is important to always think and observe how the evidence- based practices are working for our current patients.  Two things I will do to ensure academic integrity in my work will be to read and reread my work to make sure I cite and give credit to writings in which I’ve gathered information. I will continue to critically think and include my own thoughts and opinions on evidence based practices.

As mentioned in Critical thinking: the development of an essential skill for nursing students journal, (2014) “Critical thinking according to Scriven and Paul is the mental active process and subtle perception, analysis, synthesis and evaluation of information collected or derived from observation, experience, reflection, reasoning or the communication leading to conviction for action”. Chapter 3 in Dynamics in Nursing Art & Science of Professional Practice defines evidence-based practice as, “the integration of clinical expertise, the most up-to-date research, and patient’s preferences to formulate and implement best practices for patient care”.

Critical thinking is a vital component of any health care professional’s job. The ability of a nurse to think critically is a fundamental aspect of nursing. It gathers all of the patient’s information and decides what will benefit their current medical situation. It allows a nurse to make the most suitable decisions for patients, resulting in the most favorable outcomes.

In order to provide the best care to our patients, it is essential to have the ability to critically think and use current evidence-based practice. Evidence-based practice is information research over time that has been demonstrated to be the most satisfactory patient outcome. The use injunction of critical thinking and evidence-based practice will support the development of effective nursing practices.
