NU675-7D-LA Unit 3 Assignment – Clinical: Journal Reflection Herzing
Reflective Journal Instructions
You will create 7 entries for your Reflective Journal about a patient encounter. In the 5th entry, you will review the previous 6 entries and evaluate your progress in reflective practice over the course of the term. Each journal should be a minimum of 250 words.
The purpose of this reflective journal is self-reflection regarding the role in the process of self-reflection as a PMHNP provider. Through reflective practice, the student will evaluate their own emotional health and recognize one’s own feelings as well as one’s ability to monitor and manage those feelings. The point of the exercise is to learn yourself, your triggers, the types of cases you end up getting overly involved with, and those you’d rather refer to someone else. The idea is to be able to personally reflect on your behaviors/thoughts/decisions and how those impact you in the role of PMHNP.

Investigate one mental health issue that you are passionate about; LGBTQ mental health, maternal mental health, childhood bullying, etc… and find an advocacy group that you would like to be a part of for mental health awareness for this particular topic or population. Provide the link and discuss why this is important to you.
Use the appropriate APA formatting with a minimum of 2 references to support your work.
All components must be discussed to receive full credit as complete.
