Create an entry that synthesizes and identifies the key components of the course for you.

Summary:

Journaling allows students to express thoughts and feelings regarding aspects of the weekly clinical experience.  It is not an account of tasks performed but rather a way of one-to-one communication with your instructor of your innermost feelings about your day of patient care. It is difficult for instructors to recognize all challenges or successes that a student might experience. Your journal offers the instructor a chance to give you support through feedback.

During this course you will keep a self-reflective journal. Entries are to be made at the beginning and at the end of the course using the Journal Tool in D2L.

Directions:

You are required to submit 2 journals:

For journal #2: due week 8

  1. Create an entry that synthesizes and identifies the key components of the course for you.
  2. Discuss how this will be implemented into your new role as an advanced practice nurse.
  3. Identify challenges you encountered with the course, or course content.
  4. Identify 2-4 positive or negative thoughts, feelings, or emotions that occurred as a result of any knowledge and practice change that you have experienced at the end of the course

Submit 1-2 pages

Reflection

An entry that I synthesizes and identifies during this course was consolidation and refining the acquired skills in assessment and client management to attain a level of competency and proficiency to function independently in the nurse practitioner role. The most comforting aspect of my clinical rotation is the fact that my clinical preceptor is always referring to the clinical guidelines, utilizing evidenced based references, and discussing new advancements and changes in current practice.  I am very fortunate during my clinical I see a great variety of patients, from pediatric to elderly and psychiatric to gynecology.  This well rounded population of patients has allowed me to draw information from every class that I had taken thus far in the program. The wide mixture of patients and diagnoses has shown me that there are clinical guidelines for almost every diagnosis in every specialty that have been made available for practitioners to assess and follow.  Patient by patient, I have been exposed to numerous different guidelines and realize that I will never know the details of ever one, but I am thankful that I have been shown where to find the resources and how to utilize them.  In addition to the great amount of medical wisdom that I acquired during my clinical rotation I also gained a lot of knowledge about ICD 10 codes.  I have come to understand that providers must have a clear understanding of diagnosis and billing codes to ensure that they are charging the patient appropriately and not committing medical fraud.  I am grateful that my preceptor provided me with information on how to bill and charge for visits and procedures.  Overall, I have learning a lot over the last seven week about health care finance and am looking forward to increasing my skill and comfort level in the financial arena next semester.

The course content was straight forward and there was no challenge associated with it. The emotional feeling associated at this point I would say sometime you see the patient and you know what will be plan of care and medication to prescribe however you do not have legal ability to prescribe. I looking forward to the board exam as soon as possible and start applying what I have learned throughout this program.

A

n entry that

I

synthesizes and identifies

during this

course

was c

onsolidat

ion and

refining

the acquired skills in assessment and client management to attain a level of competency

and proficiency to function independently in the nurse practitioner role.

The most comforting

aspect of my clinical rotation is the fact that my clinical preceptor is

always referring to the

clinical guidelines, utilizing evidenced based references, and discussing new advancements and

changes in current practice.

I am very fortunate during

my

cl

inical

I see a great variety of

patients, from pediatric to elderly and psy

chiatric to gynecology.

This well rounded population

of patients

has

allowed me to draw information from every class that I had taken thus far in the

program.

The wide mixture of patients and diagnoses has shown me that there are clinical

guidelines for a

lmost every diagnosis in every specialty that have been made available for

practitioners to assess and follow.

Patient by patient, I have been exposed to numerous different

guidelines and realize that I will never know the details of ever one, but I am th

ankful that I have

been shown where to find the resources and how to utilize them.

In addition to the great amount

of medical wisdom that I acquired during my clinical rotation I also gained a lot of knowledge

about ICD 10 codes.

I have come to understan

d that providers must have a clear understanding

of diagnosis and billing codes to ensure that they are charging the patient appropriately and not

committing medical fraud.

I am grateful that my preceptor provided me with information on

how to bill and ch

arge for visits and procedures.

Overall, I have learning a lot over the last seven

week about health care finance and am looking forward to increasing my skill and comfort level

in the financial arena next semester.

The course content was straight forward

and there was no challenge associated with it.

The emotional feeling associated at this point I would say sometime you see the patient and you

know what will be plan of care and medication to prescribe however you do not have legal

ability to prescribe. I

looking forward to the board exam as soon as possible and start applying

what I have learned throughout this program.
