1. What did you actually learned from the unit.
I learned that strategic planning is hard. It is something I am going to be faced with in my career, so it was good to learn a little bit about it.
2. Discuss your feelings/experiences from the team activities? Did it change your opinion on the subject? If so, how? If not, why?
The team activities were good, although there was little participation. I think that it was interesting to learn from the other team about their strategies around building healthcare in their town. I think it was good to hear others’ opinions about what programs should be put in our school at UVU.
3. How you will utilize the information learned in your nursing practice.
I have learned that I will reach out to others when I am faced with strategic planning. I have such different ideas from other people and I can learn a lot from their perspective.
4. You personal feelings about the material covered.
Strategic planning is just hard. It is something I don’t personally love, but I will do it to ensure that I can meet the needs of the nurses and community around me.
