REFLECTIVE PAPER IN CONTEXT OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Case Scenario:

I was asked to do a presentation related to bradyarrhythmia’s in cardiac rhythm recognition workshop to Registered Nurses. It was my first time presenting a formal training workshop outside my ward department. I am extremely anxious and excited. I know the topic really well but not a very good in public speaking. I have very good nurse educator who supported me throughout the process. I believe it is important to know different bradyarrhythmia’s in the clinical practice. As a RN, ECG recognition is one of the prime responsibilities working in the acute area in the hospital. This can prevent clinical emergencies. I have attached the evaluation summary post-presentation. This has increased my awareness in terms of different nurses who attended the workshop are not working closely to cardiac monitoring. I think in the future I will provide a video presentation of cardiac monitoring showing different bradyarrhythmia’s.
