Abstract: Groups of nursing students were asked to post reflective journals after clinical and simulation experiences by common text means or by audio recording their voices. They were additionally asked to rate their comfort levels with the technology, the reflective process, as well as comfort recording and listening to their own voices. When compared the two types of reflective journals were found to be approximately the same in terms of depth, but were found to be more concise and shorter when delivered in text. Students indicated that there was a difference in the process of creating the reflective journals.
