Assignment Task: 3807NRS AIM:   The aim of this task is for you to apply the first seven stages of the clinical reasoning cycle (Levett-Jones et al., 2010) to review a clinical decision.  Familiarisation with the clinical reasoning cycle will support you to provide safe quality care as a Registered Nurse and will provide a foundation for the next essay in this course.  TASK INSTRUCTIONS: 3807NRS Write an essay that applies the first seven stages of the clinical reasoning cycle  (Levett-Jones et al., 2010) to a clinical decision that you have been involved with during a Bachelor of Nursing clinical placement. The clinical decision you select can be a decision that went well or one with a negative outcome. You only need to review and describe one example of a clinical decision.    Examples of clinical decisions may include (but are not limited to): 

  • Responding to a change in the patient’s condition 
  • Care planning considering the patient’s present health status 
  • Reviewing planned patient interventions including medications 
  • Outcome from effective or ineffective communication 
  • Discharge planning 

In your essay you must: 

  1. Provide a clear description of the clinical decision making process using the first seven of the eight stages of the clinical reasoning cycle (Levett-Jones, 2010). 
  2. Use literature where relevant to support the key points you make to demonstrate evidence based practice.
