How will this help my nursing practice?

  1. I'm on the very last paragraph of a paper and I'm brain drained!! Thursdays are my babysitter day to do work, well my best friend who I was a labor coach for went into labor at 4am and I got home at 5am the next morning (my toddler woke at 6am)... so I was going to finish it last night. Low and behold the damn electricity went out all evening. So now if the planets align I'm going to finish this paper to turn in tomorrow!!

    Help me out:

    I did a health education project for a guy with a detached retina... I researched the info and taught him about it, how to help prevent a recurrence, etc... and now did the paper on it. So, the last question I have to answer is "What effect will it have on my nursing practice?"

    At the moment, I DON'T KNOW AND I DON'T CARE!!
    I can't put that, can I?

    Are they asking what effect having to write that paper will have on your nursing practice? Maybe it helped to increase your research skills? Or helped you increase your ability to present information to a patient in an understandable way?

    I think this is the sort of stuff she is looking for. Like how will having done the health education with this client help me in my future nursing practice? My husband said to write "it won't" but I don't think that will go over well. I also used to be a teacher so honestly it wasn't all that new to me except having to learn about detached retinas... which I don't think is going to come in handy real often in L&D.
