1. Goal: Clinical Handover
Description: Initially, I was not confidence in giving handover to my upper level nurse and I
was incapable of providing accurate details during handover. However, after completing my
placement in a palliative acute rehabilitation acute stroke unit and using my person plan of
developing handover skills and harnessing my unique strengths, I was able to achieve the
goal of completing clinical handover process completely.
Feelings: I was very anxious during my placement, as I knew I lacked the skill to complete
accurate handover process. However, I approached my placement with confidence and was
very focused on going ahead according to my personal plan.
Evaluation: To gradually develop my handover skills, my plan was to foster resilience to
overcome my weakness in clinical handover. I tried to be a creative problem solver and used
the strategy of giving handover to at least one patient in the first week and increase the
workload to at least 3 patients. Single patient handover is an evidenced based strategy as
many simulation process focus on single patient handover instead of multiple-patient
handovers so that appropriate skills is developed first (Gordon ., Hill, Stojan & Daniel,
2018). Students nurse can then automatically develop confidence to increase the handover
workload. I utilized my person strength of being a focussed nurse to ensure that I develop
resilience and gradually learn about key skills for handover. I utilized the strategy of gaining
all information about my allocated patient and then accordingly writing handover notes.
Hence, I started with a confidence and took proactive steps to enhance my handover skills.
Analysis: From the evaluation of my strategies used to develop my confidence in handover
skills, I can say that adapting that focusing on problem solving are relevant with the attributes

of resilience approach. Staying calm and positive helps to circumvent stress response and
promote problem solving. Because of this approach, I was able to make realistic plan for
improvement in my skills. Being optimistic is the key to overcome challenges and adversity
in professional practice (McAllister, 2013).
Conclusion: Reflecting on my clinical placement experience, I can say that I am now
confident in accurately completing handover process.
Action plan: As in real practice setting, I need to engage in multiple patient handover
process, my action plan is to learn time management skills so that I can accurately complete
handover process for multiple patients.
2. Goal: Nursing progress notes
Description: Writing progress note of patients is an important responsibility in nursing
practice. During my placement at the rehabilitation unit, I got the opportunity to write
progress note for my allocated patients. To evaluate my progress in achieving the goal, I took
feedback from my allocated nurse regarding my notes and any improvements needed.
Feelings: I was focussed on writing as much notes as possible to develop my skills and I was
excited and confident to gradually develop my writing skills in relation to personal notes.
Evaluation: One of the strength of my learning experience during the placement was my
approach to develop achievable targets and taking feedback from my allocated nurse
regarding my writing skills. I searched about important components to be included in
progress notes to ensure that continuity is maintained. This strategy is relevant with the
methods to develop good clinical records as Mathioudakis et al. (2016) supports that
