SBAR on multiple occasions when explaining a
situation regarding a patient to another
healthcare worker. On 11/19 I was on the mother
infant unit and had a patient that was transferred
from L&D. After a time she was still reluctant to
get up and ambulate to the bathroom due to pain.
I was able to give her some pain meds and a little
more time to rest and then she was able to
ambulate to the bathroom to void.

FINAL DATE:

2. I always complete my clinical paperwork on time and


have noticeably improved on my documentation speed
and accuracy. I can be difficult to keep track of the
different places you need to chart information in connect
care especially when you are switching from MI unit,
L&D, and pediatrics, but by a little after halfway through
the semester I was able to sort it out successfully. I
believe my documentation skills have progressed very
well and while they are not perfect, they have definitely
improved and they are currently at a sufficient level.

2. During post-conference I am always present,


listening and participating in discussion. On a

daily basis I strive to have and maintain a calm


yet confident demeanor. On 10/29 I was able to
provide a confident, yet calming presence to a
new mother with a history of depression who was
nervous about the responsibility of having a child.

1 On 9/24 I recognized that my patient was a little
stressed out with having a lot of people in her
room before she was about to give birth. However,
the nurse got them to leave before I could bring it
to her attention. I always adhere to the dress code
and come to clinical prepared.

2. I believe I have done a great job at providing nonjudgmental nursing care to the patients and families in the
MIU, L&D, and NICU even though some of them made
decisions I would not have made. I believe I have a
healthy understanding of people, for my age and level of
experience, and accept them as they are, without passing
judgment. I am aware of the importance of the family unit

confident, yet calming presence to a new mother
with a history of depression who was nervous
about the responsibility of having a child. I could
definitely tell the stress of having a child was takin
its toll on this new mom. One thing that that really
seemed to help her was having someone to talk to
and listen to her experiences. Building this rapport
helped later in the day when we did patient
teaching.

2. I always introduce myself first thing when I walk into the


room in the morning before report. I believe I have done a
great job at providing non-judgmental nursing care to the
patients and families in the MIU, L&D, and NICU. I am
aware of the importance of the family unit in the in the
process of pregnancy, labor, delivery and in the
postpartum phase of care. I try to include the family
whenever possible or beneficial. I include the family in
conversation and patient teaching because they will also
be helping the mother and child once they leave the
hospital.
2. I maintain personal and professional boundaries at

all times. One of the more common cultural


practices I have seen during clinical is
circumcision. Even if it is already documented, I
always ask/remind the mother that their child is
scheduled for the procedure just to make sure we
are all on the same page.

1 I believe the clinical on 9/24 was a tough day for
nearly everyone on the unit. Despite the difficult
situation I saw everyone, including myself, deal
with the events in an acceptable manor. On 9/17 I
had a patient that needed some nipple cream
and I believe sensitive and respectful care by
supply said nipple cream in a timely fashion.

MIDTERM DATE:

I have performed two cultural and spiritual


assessments one on 9/3 and another on 9/17.

Harrison has been complimented by the nursing staff for


demonstrating professional behavior and caring actions
for the patients that he is assigned.

Both times I received very different information. I


show that I value the patients own expertise by
listening to them and acting on their behalf based
off of their concerns. I feel a little out of my
element sometimes on L&D or the MIU, but I
always try to empower women and families by
giving them the education and resources they
need to take care of themselves.

1. On 10/29 I had a postpartum patient with a
history of depression who definitely needed
someone to talk to. Her husband was not able to
be with her for the majority of her hospital stay
and she seemed lonely and nervous. Through
active listening I was able to calm her and even
lift her spirits a little. This rapport paved the way
for what seemed to be very successful patient
teaching later on in the day.

FINAL DATE:

2. I value the patients own expertise with health and


symptoms. On 11/19 I had a postpartum patient who did
want to get up and void due to pain. Through the use of
pain meds, therapeutic communication, and a little extra
time to rest she was able to get up and void with some
assistance. I feel that I empower my patients with
emotional support, patient education, and therapeutic
communication. I do this to help optimize their growth and
healing in holistic way.

1 During my first clinical on 9/3 I assured
therapeutic nursing interventions were being
carried out by charting my assessments on the
fetal heart per unit protocol. I am a good
communicator and always complete the
communication loop.

MIDTERM DATE:
Harrison works at incorporating concepts learned in the
didactic class and applying the principals in the clinical
environment. He strives to provide evidenced based
nursing care and continues to seek information about
best practices.

2.I have collaborated with other healthcare professionals


on the unit and in the OR. These healthcare
professionals include doctors, NICU nurses, and L&D or
MI nurses. I have definitely identified gaps between local
and best practice. Some local practice is to not seek
any prenatal care and only visit the doctor when it is time
to have the baby! That is not best practice. I do need to
improve on prioritizing my care in a quick and efficient
manor.

Whenever I have had a patient I have


participated in an individualized care plan. I have
also looked up scholarly articles during clinical to
help to help me better understand the care I am
giving and to answer questions I might have
about the care I need to give my patient. I
integrate this research into my growing practice
to help give better care to my patients.

1. During my clinical on 11/5 I was on L&D and had
a patient that was on oxytocin. Here I
demonstrated appropriate clinical judgement and
reasoning and helped ensure that therapeutic
nursing interventions were being performed
safely. While I am not allowed to give oxytocin or
interact with the pump giving oxytocin in any way
I did talk extensively with the nurse during the
whole process.

2. I have collaborated with other healthcare professionals


on the unit and in the OR. These healthcare
professionals include doctors, NICU nurses, and L&D or
MI nurses. I have definitely identified gaps between local
and best practice. I believe I have improved on giving
patients quicker and more efficient care while still
maintaining a high quality of care. My skills in this
department are not perfect yet, but I believe I have seen
noticeable improvement.

start of my OB clinical I have learned to utilize
scholarly articles and Bon Secours policy
documents to help further my knowledge of best
practices. I used to always ask someone what
the best practice was, and I still do sometimes,
but now I have learned of the resources to find
the answers myself.

2. I follow the dress code and turn in all clinical paperwork


in on time. This semester I have arrived late to clinical
more times than I would have liked. While it does not
happen often, it could have been avoided on the days I
was late. I completely understand and agree that it is
unprofessional to arrive late, this is something I am
working on in both my personal and professional life. I will
improve on this aspect professionalism.

2. One goal I focused on during the midterm was


getting better at documentation. I believe I have
improved on my documentation speed, accuracy
and efficiency. I was able to get more organized
with how I set up my connect care folders and
tabs, and also learned a few helpful tips from the
nurses as well.

I have completed all written and reflective exercises. I


also actively seek out opportunities on the different units to
grow and learn as a nurse and get involved in my patients
care. I find every clinical packed full of new experiences
and information. I am at ease with the ever changing
nature of the hospital setting. For example, on 11/19 I did
not get my patient on the MI unit until 1130, so I assessed
my nurses other patients and helped them until my patient
got up the floor. It was a different day than I am used to
but I adapted to it successfully.
