Product Description: Within health care, there are new ideas emerging regarding the management and development of clinical practice. In a short period of time, reflective practice has brought about a revolution in nursing. It has been embraced wholeheartedly as an effective approach to developing nursing care.

Becoming a Reflective Practitioner is a practical guide to developing a reflective approach to care in everyday practice. Christopher Johns lucidly outlines a process in which the practitioner can develop his or her own method for developing a reflective and holistic approach to care. Based on everyday clinical practice, the examples guide the reader through the stages of reflective practice in the context of a caring relationship with the client. By drawing on key nursing philosophers' work, the significance of nursing theory is acknowledged in the way it informs without prescribing what nurses ought to do. This text shows that reflective practice is a dynamic process that evolves as the practitioner develops his or her own practice. It clearly illustrates the tension between offering a vision for practice and a reflection of reality.

This book will be of interest to all nurses involved in developing their clinical practice. It will inform managers and clinical supervisors wishing to explore a model for developing reflective practice in their units. It will also be of interest to other health care professionals adopting a reflective approach to developing practice.

From the Postscript by Jean Watson:
'This work by Christopher Johns brings us face to face with the human elements and human dilemmas; the deep level of humanity that clinicians encounter daily, moment by moment; the blessings and challenges of: living, suffering, changing, evolving, dying, leading us to nothing less than a rebirthing of self and work.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
