Practicum: Journal Entry on a patient (choose a pediatric case) you attended to at the clinic as a Nurse practitioner 🙁 1 to 2 pages)
i have attached a sample paper as a guide ,you need to choose your own case study to write on:
(Pick one case ) reflect on a patient who presented with a behavioral or mental health issue during your Practicum experience. Provide the child’s subjective, objectives data. Describe your experience in assessing and managing the patient and his or her family. Include details of your “aha” moment in identifying the patient’s behavioral or mental health issue. Then, explain how the experience connected your classroom studies to the real-world clinical setting. If you did not have an opportunity to evaluate a patient with this background during the last 4 weeks, you may select a related case study from a reputable source or reflect on previous clinical experiences.
