I am happy to have wrapped up this semester so I can move on to my next rotations. I am going to be exclusively working with a child/adolescent NP in an outpatient clinic so I am excited for the experience I will gain from that. I am looking forward to learning more about medication management as I did not have a good experience with that this semester. I am also going to do be doing an additional 30 hours with the therapist I worked with this semester and am very excited for that. I have found it hard to leave some of the weekly therapy clients as I have gained good rapport with them, however am happy I can continue to see them for a short time this summer. My greatest learning experience this semester was with my therapy preceptor, and I have been finding myself using some of the tools that I have learned from her in my current practice as an RN, therefore I know I will implement them in my future practice as an NP.

This last week I can say that my clinical rotation has been really interesting. I was able to do first the psychotherapy hours to be able to learn and do psychotherapy in an inpatient psychiatric unit to many different patients even children. It was a great experience to conduct therapy to families and patients. My preceptor really supported me, and I used many resources like videos to guide me on the types of psychotherapy technique used in different scenarios. I my second rotation for psychotherapy I was able to experience the prescribing hours where I was able to see patients with current mental illness to come in to see us for follow ups or just new patients were a through medical, family, and social history was obtained besides patients reports to diagnose and start medication treatment. I was also able in this part of the rotation to refer patients to therapy and live the entire process of becoming a Psych Nurse Practitioner. I would like to thank my professor Blair throughout this process and class, and I hope to learn from the incoming clinical more and more.
