I can use learning theories to increase my motivation to improve my nursing skills in many ways. By using behaviorism theory, I can create goals and rewards that measure progress. This would motivate me to improve my understanding. Similar to social learning theory, peer observation is a key factor in learning new skills. This could be why it might help me seek out mentors or other experts in my field.
Constructivism also emphasizes the value of learning from others in nursing and participating in simulations that allow one to assume the role of nurse. I can see how certain theories may apply to me and I’m able to understand the reasons for success.
