Reflection on Learning No unread replies.No replies.

Write 1-2 paragraphs reflecting on theories used as a nurse practitioner. Then save the reflection as a Word Document for submission later in the course. In week 8, you will submit all reflections as a single document.

This reflection is worth 5 points and the final reflection document in week 8 is worth 15 points.

You will need to post your reflection here before you are able to see other students’ posts.

As you contemplate your future NP practice, how do you view your role in using theory in practice?

Which of the theories “spoke” to you? What are some barriers you see to implementing theory in practice?
