This reflection addresses power, authority, conflict and change. Make sure you thoroughly discuss both sections below.
1. Please give an example of a time when your professional power and authority was challenged. Did this challenge result in a conflict? If so, please describe. If not, please indicate how your response or the situation in general was resolved without conflict. If you can not think of a personal situation related to this, please give an example when you observed someone else being challenged related to their power or authority. Did this result in a conflict? If so, please describe conflict, and how it was resolved. (talk from labor and delivery nurse point of view)
2. Also, describe how you believe a change in nursing practice should be handled. This does not have to be related to the situation you described above
