Journaling provides a valuable tool for recording, reflecting on, and reviewing your learning. This approach provides an opportunity for you to “connect the dots” and observe the relationships between and among activities, interactions, and outcomes.
Unlike a personal journal of thoughts and feelings, this leadership journal is a record of your activities, assessments, and learning related to this academic experience.
Journal entries should include a record of the number of hours spent with your nurse leader each week.
Write a journal entry of 750-1,500 words on the subject of power, including the following:
Practicum Activities Reflection: Provide observations and thoughts on the activities in your practicum setting during Weeks 1 and 2.
Application of Leadership: Professional responsibility and power, authenticity, integrity, and emotional intelligence are key factors of multiple leadership styles. Discuss how you have observed your preceptor or nurse leader in your professional setting integrate these elements into leadership styles.
Practicum Project Preparation: What are your ideas for your practicum project? How does this project refine and build skills related to your career goals?
Leadership Video Reflection: Reflect on at least two things you learned from the “Servant Leadership – Issue of Power” video.
Use the “Leadership Journal Template,” located in Class Resources, to complete this assignment.
