Nursing is a practise-based profession, so it is vital that the clinical skills, that are the tools of the grade(Maggie 1999).According to White(2000),‘To enable students to develop their proficiency in clinical skills nurse educators use innovative methods of supplementing the practice placement experience by turning to simulated practice to achieve this’ (2000). When I was in University, we use role play in simulation lab to monitor vital signs and record it in different Standard Adult General Observation (SAGO) charts. Mayne et al. (2004) further explained that ‘Simulated practice enables students to increase their competencies in the performance of the practical skills in a safe environment’(2004). Being a first year student, my mentor usually allocated me a post-operative patient received back from theatres to record patients' observations includes blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and respiration (Bulman and Schutz 2004).In the postoperative phase, patient surveillance is based on routine and regulated observation.

The NMC (2004) sets standards and guidance which enables professionals to demonstrate that they are keeping up to date with developments in professional practice and expanding their knowledge and competence. I am at the beginning of my life long journey. In university I will be developing my basic needs to become a newly qualified nurse; however one way I can gain further understanding is by reflecting upon my experiences. Siviter (2004) describes that reflection is the process in which you look at yourself and your practice objectively. Bolton (2005) argues that it is the way you incorporate your theory and practice in order to grow as a professional.

I aim to investigate this recent trend and analyze whether planned homebirths are just a viable option as hospital births by examining the training of the medical attendant, OB/ GYN or midwife, in tandem with mortality rates of both mother and child, as well as social perceptions of the practices in the media and culture itself. It is important to designate the difference between planned and unplanned homebirths. Planned homebirths involve expecting mothers who have done their research on the topic and understand the potential risks, and benefits of giving birth within the setting of their own home. These planned homebirths are attended by a medical professional ranging from paramedics, to mid-wives and even physicians (Schramm 930). Unplanned homebirths are not attended by a medical professional and often are a result of lack of pre-natal planning.
Armed with the latest in EBP, the most recent nursing knowledge, and freshly learned skills, the new nurse is expected, by some, to function at the same level as every other experienced nurse on their unit. The members of this committee understand this is an unrealistic expectation, however, just how long should it take for the new graduate nurse to function as an independent staff nurse? Dr. Patricia Benner, one of nursing’s Grand Theorists, has addressed this very question. In her book, From Novice to Expert: Excellence and Power in Clinical Nursing Practice, Dr. Benner describes that much of the knowledge learned in nursing is obtained at the bedside, and new nurses will only become expert nurses through time and experience. Dr. Benner based her work on the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition (2001).
