Clinical Day last week – 06/13/19

In clinical last week, we had our first orientation for pediatric clinical in nursing. We discussed on the topic of SOAP NOTES, how to write a SOAP NOTE, and what information were important to put in a Soap Note when we go to assess out client who are between the ages of infancy to school age. By the end of the day, we had to write a soap note before we left clinical. So how can last week clinical be tied to one of the topics 1 -7 above? Choose one topic and write about it. How does it connect? What are your personal feeling about it? what did you learn from doing the soap notes. etc…
