Abstract
This paper provides a conceptual framework upon which action plans can be built to enable registered nurses to reflect upon their work and practice activities. This conceptual framework has been used by the author in his work with various nursing development units within Yorkshire, England, in his role as their academic nurse advisor. The framework has been useful in helping nurses not only to reflect upon current work and practice activities but also as a guideline for future development. The paper provides examples of such nursing development activities and includes a personal view of how nursing development units can act as catalysts for change.
