Guide for reflection using Tanner's Clinical Judgment Model

This Guide for Reflection was published in the article Guide for Reflection using the Clinical Judgment Model, written by Nielsen, Stragnell, and Jester in 2007. It will help you think about a clinical situation you have encountered during the past week and your nursing response. The situation can be a specific physiological patient problem, such as an elevation in temperature, respiratory difficulty, or electrolyte imbalance. You may choose to describe a situation involving a patient’s family. The situation can be a description of your role in interdisciplinary problem-solving. The reflection situation may describe an ethical issue you encountered in practice. Use the guide for reflection to tell the story of the situation you encountered. The guide provides you with a way of thinking about the care that supports the development of your clinical judgment. Although there are many ways of organizing your thinking about patient care and professional nursing practice, Tanner’s (2006) Clinical Judgment Model provides the framework for the questions in this guide.
