write paper as though you followed or precept with RN in the Home health clinical setting
At one time the role of nurse in the community focused primarily on visiting clients at home and identifying cases of communicable disease. Over the decades the role has become multifaceted and now involves community based and community-oriented practice in a variety of settings or roles. With increasing emphasis on population health, community health nurses recognize that addressing community health issues requires meeting the needs of the individuals, families, and populations who are the nucleus of the community. Community health nursing recognizes that nurses interact with clients in many settings. The purpose of the clinical experience in this course is to expose the student to these varied settings and allow the student to interact with clients in these settings.
The clinical learning experiences will be reflected in the Clinical Journal. The Clinical Journal will include four separate entries. The students will arrange these experiences at different times based on their schedule. Upon completing a particular rotation the student will submit a journal for that experience
Each Clinical Journal entry will include the following information.
• A title page with student’s name, staff mentor’s name and position/title, the name of the agency, and the dates of the clinical experience.
• Each entry gives a complete description of each clinical experience based on the objectives for that experience. It should include evidence of application of learning experiences in relation to the objectives attached. Each entry for each objective should incorporate readings, learning activities from class, and personal insight gained from the mentor.
• Each objective for each clinical area must be addressed as described above for that experience.
• Each entry must be computer generated in APA style and submitted in a pocket folder with the student’s name outside.
