Assignment 1: Application – Comprehensive Patient Assessment

When completing practicum requirements in clinical settings, you and your Preceptor might complete several patient assessments in the course of a day or even just a few hours. This schedule does not always allow for a thorough discussion or reflection on every patient you have seen. As a future advanced practice nurse, it is important that you take the time to reflect on a comprehensive patient assessment that includes everything from patient medical history to evaluations and follow-up care. For this Assignment, you begin to plan and write a comprehensive assessment paper that focuses on one female patient from your current practicum setting.

By Day 7 of Week 9

This Assignment is due. It is highly recommended that you begin planning and working on this Assignment as soon as it is viable.

To prepare

  • Reflect on your Practicum Experience and select a female patient whom you have examined with the support and guidance of your Preceptor.
  • Think about the details of the patient’s background, medical history, physical exam, labs and diagnostics, diagnosis, treatment and management plan, as well as education strategies and follow-up care.
