The three topics were the person centered care, the clinical reasoning cycle as wellas the RLT model. I was quite excited in the beginning as learning new theories in nursingamuses me. Moreover, I was very happy that I getting an opportunity to learnt something thatwould be very crucial for me in my profession. However, the negative part was that I could notunderstand a number of aspects from the overview that the professors gave us on the three topics.I could not distinguish distinctly about the functioning of each theory, the areas where I need toapply them, and these confused me and made me nervous. The good part was that I understoodthat the CRC and RLT theories are mainly assessment based theories that helps nurses to assessthe symptoms and diagnose the issues correctly. Therefore, I wanted to develop more knowledgeon the topics and looked further to the coming week with the hope that detailed discussing wouldhelp me to understand the features of the theories distinctly.

I developed the understanding of the ten important biological factors thathelps in ensuring how well the patients are conducting their activities of daily lives. Thesecomprised of maintaining safe environments, controlling temperature, breathing and many others(Ballard et al., 2018). Therefore, I also understood the important capabilities that I have toanalyze while assessing the patient health. I developed an understanding that my communicationis not apt to undertake such theories and therefore, I started taking workshops to develop mycommunication skills so that I can engage patients while taking assessments with the help ofthese theories.
