Submit assignment via Assignment 3 Dropbox Due Date: Week 16
The purpose of this assignment is to explore your values and beliefs related to family nursing and family health promotion and to consider how they impact decision-making processes and professional judgment in nursing practice. By examining one’s values and beliefs through critical reflection, assumptions in practice can be challenged to facilitate a preliminary shift in attitude, which is part of transformational learning (Melrose, Park & Perry, 2013).
