Assessment 2 Reflection on leadership: TIP SHEET

Assessment 2 Reflection on leadership: TIP SHEET

Assessment 2: Reflection on leadership: TIP SHEET

General points

Word count = 1000 words

·         This means 1000 words +/- 10% so between approximately 900-1110 words

·         I have provided a guide to word counts in each section – this is a guide only

·         References and reference list are NOT included in the word count

Getting started

Your first step is to think of an episode on placement where you witnessed/experienced good or poor leadership or mentorship from a RN

Key words

·         Episode must involve an RN – WHY? This is not saying you can’t see good/poor leadership or mentorship from an EN or AIN – but as you are about to graduate as a RN you need to focus on an RN

·         Placement – this can be any placement you have been on during your nursing degree

o    NB: This is NOT to come from your work experiences – WHY? We are looking for your experiences as a student RN

·         Leadership – we have discussed leadership a lot in this subject so you should be aware what this encompasses

·         Mentorship – this is your experiences being mentored – i.e.: buddied with a RN

·         Good or poor experiences – you can use either – often we learn more from our poor experiences

·         Think of an episode where you experienced good leadership or mentorship – and what made it good – how this made you feel – you will unpack this using the reflective cycle with the aim to take the best elements – make sure they are grounded in evidence – and incorporate to your own practice

·         OR think of an episode where you experienced poor leadership or mentorship – and what made it bad  – how this made you feel – you will unpack this using the reflective cycle with the aim to take the best elements – make sure they are grounded in evidence – and incorporate to your own practice

Now review Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle as these are the headings that you will use in this assessment – there is a copy in assessment resources 

1.       Description (approximately 250 words) 10 marks

·         Thinking of the episode you have chosen - describe this and tell us what happened.

·         This sets the scene for the rest of the assessment – so take your time to choose an appropriate episode

·         This is a narrative – to provide an overview of what happened

·         Be concise – don’t include superfluous information e.g. it isn’t a step-by-step guide to everything that happened on a shift

·         Not academic language – but please still use good grammar and spelling

·         You can use the first person – we want to see how you were involved

·         Make sure you provide specific detail –  don’t just provide generic details e.g. don’t just say the RN showed good mentorship by providing good communication – how did they do this? This is what you want to take away and learn from the encounter

·         NB: Don’t identify the RN or the facility this occurred at – this would be a reach of confidentiality

2.       Feelings(approximately 100 words) 10 marks

·         Written in the first person

·         What were you thinking and feeling during this episode

·         Use descriptive and honest language – again this is not academic language

·         What impact did this have on you

·         Relate the feelings to what happened in the episode

e.g. “I felt a bit overwhelmed when the RN asked me to manage the situation but at the end of it I felt really proud of myself for stepping up”

OR “I felt really upset and disheartened when the RN made fun of my first attempt at a IMI”

3.       Evaluation (approximately100 words) 10 marks

·         Based on what you have described above – in the narrative and your feelings section -what were the positive or negative aspects you can identify in the episode

·         This part is not analytical – you are making your own personal judgements about what you thought was good or poor

·         This can be written in the first person

4.       Analysis (approximately 250 words) 15marks

·         What sense can you make of the situation?

·         This is building on your evaluation - reconsider the things that were good or poor

·         The aim is to explain the causes of things that happened – it asks the question why? E.g. so if mentoring was poor – why might that be the case? If you are saying you saw good leadership relate to the evidence on this

·         This part is analytical – it does not describe – so this is NOT in the first person

·         Use academic writing in this section

·         Here you will go to the literature to back up your argument – so articles on leadership or mentoring in nursing will help

·         Use in-text referencing in this section

·         Try and focus on the things that you think are the most important

·         It is better to write more and a couple of things than a little bit about a lot – you will be able to demonstrated your understanding more if you focus on a couple of points

5.       Conclusions (100 words) 10 marks

·         A summary of what you have learnt from this episode

·         This should be backed up with evidence

·         You can write this in the first person – but evidence still needs to be referenced

6.       Action Plan (100-200 words) 15 marks

·         As a result of this episode what specific actions will you now take in your future nursing practice

·         Choose 2 actions – make sure these are specific – number these as 1 and 2

·         A specific action is something like “I will ensure that I provide students with constructive and timely feedback” as opposed to “I will give feedback”

·         For each  provide a rationale – this is the why you are doing it – so this needs to be backed up with evidence

Reference list5 marks

·         How many references? Minimum of 5 references

·         You are discussing nursing mentoring and leadership – so aim to use nursing journals

·         As always – peer reviewed journals are favoured

·         Harvard referencing at a 3rd year level

Academic literacy 5 marks

Writing at a 3rd year level expected
