Summary of strengths:

The assessment form revealed areas that I can confidently consider as my strengths. I consider the skills that I can execute independently and confidently as some of the strengths that I have gained throughout the learning period. I am pleased to note that I can recognize clinical signs and symptoms of psychiatric illness across the lifespan devoid of any form of assistance or supervision. I have been able to advance this skill through practice and reading regularly on the various symptoms. I a m also good at performing and interpreting functional assessment. I can execute this skill without any supervision or assistance. I have been able to perfect this skill through regular practice and reading. This is a skill that requires proper observation. I have always been observant of the situations and the people around me. Sometimes, I observe family members, friends, or relatives to help them understand how their daily lives influence their health. This habit has also helped me to perfect on my abilities to identify and differentiate symptoms. I can confidently and without any supervision select the right evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and psychotherapeutic plans. The other thing that I like about my progress is that I can develop goals that are achievable within a realistic time frame for my practicum experience. I have gained knowledge that I can put into use to help my clients with disease prevention techniques and promotion of good health. In terms of professional skills, I have mastered how to create and maintain professional relationship and boundaries. I have perfected my communication skills which are necessary for collaboration and working multidisciplinary teams.

Opportunities for growth:

There are numerous opportunities for growth that I consider valuable for my career as a psychiatric nurse. Mentorship opportunities that come when I work with my supervisors. For instance, I rely on supervision to differentiate between pathophysical and psychological conditions, performing mental stats examination, formulating diagnoses as required by DSM 5, and selecting appropriate evidence-based practice. I consider feedback from my supervisors as another critical opportunity for growth. Leadership development opportunities and programs that are present both at school and in the workplace are also vital opportunities for growth. Regular training and practice in the field also provides the opportunity to advance both clinical and communication skills. I interact with other professionals in my field of study, and this has helped me to understand the changes or events that take place in the field.

Now, write three to four (3–4) possible goals and objectives for this practicum experience. Ensure that they follow the SMART Strategy, as described in the Learning Resources.
1. Goal: Improve on patient screening and evaluation
