SOLUTION: Pre-Clinical CCT; The professional nurse is responsible for the safety and well-being of their patient.  It is the responsibility of every professional nurse to ensure that their patient receives the most effective empathetic and safe care that is possible.  The act of reflection allows us to question the assumptions we base our decisions and work upon.   It allows us to be self-aware and explore in depth how we feel and see our world.  Reflection allows us to change our practice as we analyze what we did and why. The Pre-Clinical CCT Rubric is broken down into 4 categories: Assessment, Communication, Clinical Judgement, and Patient Safety. This paper should examine where points were lost in these categories, what you have been taught, what actions were unsafe, and what is your intention to make improvements in your practice in the future. Refer to your skills checklists, Davis’s Drug Guide, or lab modules for guidance.  Also consider the following: SOLUTION: Pre-Clinical CCT
