Start by reflecting on an event, incident, interaction, and or observation that occurred in the hospital clinical setting. The paper should still present in a professional and academic way with supporting references that highlight your own critical thinking and analysis.
The Gibbs reflective cycle is applied to your chosen event in the paper.
