First year MEPN students were in the lab last week practicing newly acquired psychiatry nursing skills. Working in teams, students incorporated nursing theory and research to provide care to a standardized patient with a diagnosis of schizophrenia.
Psych faculty, Dr. Semira Asaro was pleased with the experience. “I believe our MEPN students will be well prepared to provide care to this patient population. Students practiced interviewing skills, and then as a group discussed treatment plans. Well done.”
