1. What were the highlights of this week’s clinical?
I was able to conduct initial assessment on three new patients. I went to clinicals
Thursday and all day Saturday. One of my patients had a diagnosis of schizophrenia and I
also had two other bipolar patients new to my preceptors practice.
2. What challenges did you face?
It was difficult driving for hours for clinicals also being there till 10pm. I like to have
work life balance and am unable to afford to quit my job. I also have another part time
job to pay for school and I feel even though the college does say you are able to work in
practice its not possible due to not having preceptors for PMHNP students.

Stahls Prescription Guide was very useful. I visited UpToDate for more current

medications the patients were on.

Most patients the preceptor schedules them to come every 4 days depending on if the
patient has an acute episode and to keep ambulatory. Insomnia and anxiety related to
depression and bipolar disorders.

and all day Saturday. One of my patients had a diagnosis of bipolar and the other
dementia.
