Starting the entry-level nursing program has caused a mix of emotions in me to arise. Although I am nervous as to what obstacles lie ahead, beginning this journey is also exciting. Being that this is an entirely new experience for me, there are fears, goals, and barriers that keep crossing my mind. In the first 2 weeks nursing school has, for the most part, gone how I expected it too, from the amount of studying I do, to the level of difficulty I excepted in each class. However, from the numerous things I’ve heard about nursing school, I didn’t expect every one of my peers and professors to be so helpful, and that is refreshing.
In the study by Finnbogadottir and Dykes (2012) the report was well written, it was grammatically correct, concise and well organised. The authors qualifications and positions were clearly identified and indicated that Finnbogadottir was attached to the department of nursing at Malmo University, Sweden and was a PHD student. Dykes was a professor and attached to the division of nursing at Lund University, Sweden. The report title was clear and accurate and un ambiguous. It clearly highlighted what the study was about. The abstract was a clear overview of the study and reflected the content of the paper. It provided details of the research problem, the sample, the methodology and findings with recommendations.
This essay will discuss why having an understanding of learning theory and learning style is important in a career in nursing.

The main body of the essay will conclude with a critically analysis of the learning cycle and how having an understanding may have an effect in a career in nursing.

Nursing students today are diverse with different learning styles. Nursing educators must shape students to become critical thinkers and there are a host of approaches for instructors to develop needed teaching skills (Kostovich et al., 2007). There are many models of education styles; one to fashion teaching after is from Kolb’s model in 1985 which suggests matching learning methods to teaching approaches. However, educators need to become proficient in identifying individual student learning styles. Nursing educators should also recognize their own teaching style and the effect it has on learner development and socialization (National League for Nursing, 2007). The National League for Nursing (NLN) has developed eight core
I will methodically analyze all parts of the study to assess the validity of the article, by contrasting and comparing the information provided, with previous literature. I will try to make sure that recommendations provided by the authors are congruous with nursing practice and beneficial to the advancement of it. I will as much as possible provide in depth detail of previous studies on the same topic that either support or contradict the analysis provided by this study and its authors.
I once heard someone say, “Find something you love to do and you’ll always be successful.” If you want to be in a field where you are continually learning, nursing would be the top pick. This paper will reflect the journey I have taken from Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) with the incorporation of my learning objectives from my clinical course.
