Assignment 2: Clinical Skills Self-Assessment

Before embarking on any professional or academic activity, it is important to understand
the background, knowledge, and experience you bring to it. You might ask yourself, “What
do I already know? What do I need to know? And what do I want to
know?” This critical self-reflection is especially important for developing clinical skills such
as those for advanced practice nursing.
The PMHNP Clinical Skills List and PMHNP Clinical Skills Self-Assessment Form
provided in the Learning Resources can be used to celebrate your progress throughout
your practicum and identify skills gaps. The skills list covers all necessary skills you should
demonstrate during your practicum experiences.
For this Assignment (just as you did in PRAC 6645), you assess where you are now in your
clinical skill development and make plans for this practicum. Specifically, you will identify
strengths and opportunities for improvement regarding the required practicum skills. In
this practicum experience, when developing your goals and objectives, be sure to
keep assessment and diagnostic reasoning in mind. As you complete your self-assessment
this week, you may wish to look back over your self-assessments from prior practicums to
reflect on your growth.
To Prepare
 Review the clinical skills in the PMHNP Clinical Skills List document. It is
recommended that you print out this document to serve as a guide throughout your
practicum.
 Review the “Developing SMART Goals” resource on how to develop goals and
objectives that follow the SMART framework.

 Review the resources on nursing competencies and nursing theory, and consider
how these inform your practice.
 Download the PMHNP Clinical Skills Self-Assessment Form to complete this
Assignment.
The Assignment
Use the PMHNP Clinical Skills Self-Assessment Form to complete the following:
 Rate yourself according to your confidence level performing the skills identified in
the Clinical Skills Self-Assessment Form.
 Based on your ratings, summarize your strengths and opportunities for
improvement.
 Based on your self-assessment and theory of nursing practice, develop three to four
(3–4) measurable goals and objectives for this practicum experience. Include them
on the designated area of the form.

Clinical Hour Log
For this course, all practicum activity hours are logged within the Meditrek system. Hours
completed must be logged in Meditrek within 48 hours of completion in order to be
counted.
You may only log hours with Preceptors that are approved in Meditrek. Students with
catalog years before Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 576 hours of supervised
clinical experience (144 hours in each practicum course). Students with catalog years
beginning Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 640 hours of supervised clinical
experience (160 hours in each practicum course). By the end of Week 1, make sure you
confirm that your Preceptor and Clinical Faculty are set up in Meditrek.
Each log entry must be linked with an individual practicum Learning Objective or a
graduate Program Objective. You should track your hours in Meditrek as they are
completed.
Your clinical hour log must include the following:
 Dates
 Course

 Clinical Faculty
 Preceptor
 Total Time (for the day)
 Notes/Comments (including the objective to which the log entry is aligned)
Patient Log
Throughout this course, you will also keep a log of patient encounters using Meditrek. You
must record at least 80 encounters with patients by the end of this practicum (40
children/adolescents and 40 adult/older adult).
The patient log must include the following:
 Date
 Course
 Clinical Faculty
 Preceptor
 Patient Number
 Client Information
 Visit Information
 Practice Management
 Diagnosis
 Treatment Plan and Notes: You must include a brief summary/synopsis of the
patient visit. This does not need to be a SOAP note, however the note needs to be
sufficient to remember your patient encounter.
By Day 7 of Week 1
Record your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek.

What's Coming Up in Week 2?

Next week, you will coordinate contact with your Clinical Faculty and Preceptor for
orientation and onboarding, as well as to discuss goals and any related questions. You will
continue recording your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek. You will also

engage with resources to bolster your confidence in assessing, diagnosing, and treating
patients.
Looking Ahead: Practicum Experience Plan (PEP)
Now that you have completed your self-assessment in Week 1, in Week 2 you will begin
developing your Practicum Experience Plan (PEP). Your self-assessment will inform your
plan.
