4.1. Client Encounter Journal Entry

While being mindful of integrating critical thinking into the management of clients during the clinical experience, you will also be evaluating health promotion and maintenance for children, adolescents, adults and/or older adults, to include medically underserved groups. The PMHNP role also encompasses analyzing cultural proficiency and spirituality in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of clients with mental health conditions.

Your entry must be about a client encounter you had this week and should be no more than 500 words. Journal entries should also include an analysis of the Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner role or the potential role in the clinical setting. 

Write about a situation that you felt you handled well. What did you do? Provide justification and reasoning for your actions. This commentary should include reference to relevant course content or research.
