Abstract


  • Nursing educators, and indeed almost every healthcare practitioner, advocates the notion of reflection on practice (deVries & Timmins, 2016). With healthcare aspiring to bridge the theory-practice gap, critical reflection is required so that healthcare professionals are empowered and have capacity for change. Then they are able to contribute to improving health outcomes. We know this is true, but can reflection be overdone with nursing students so that the meaning and value of reflection is lost.
