Definition on SWOT Analysis
SWOT analysis is a framework for identifying our internal strengths and weaknesses, as well as our external opportunities and threats (Nursing Times, 2012).

Strengths

Currently as a student nurse at University of the West of Scotland I believe I’ve gained good practice and theory in effective communication, whether it be verbal or non verbal. I needed first to gain consent from the patient (Nursing and Midwifery council, 2008), this required effective communication as I had to explain the procedure so they knew what I was going to do. The feedback I received allowed me to recognise the patient understood what was going to happen and allowed me to carry on taking their blood pressure (Ellis, Hartley, 2007).
Due to studying the procedure in The Royal Marsden Hospital’s Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures I had a good knowledge of the skill which allowed me to undertake the task confidently. This made the patient feel at ease, along with my mentor supervising me.

Weaknesses

As it was my first time I felt very nervous as I know it’s an uncomfortable clinical procedure and I was aware I had a lack of experience in carrying the procedure out. Therefore, I felt a bit of pressure to do it as quickly as I had seen the registered nurses do. Our brain requires us to continue practicing a task until we get it right, as practice makes perfect (Baddelely, 1997).

As I wanted to ensure the reading was right, as it was going into the patient notes, so I repeated the procedure three times for an accurate reading. Reflecting on this I’ve realised that at the time the patient may have felt uncomfortable due to me oinflating and deflating the cuff repeatedly

Opportunities

The day before I was luckily
