Create a reflective journal for nursing practitioners in the pediatric emergency department.
What were your initial expectations of the clinical site and your role as an APN on that site? How has your perception changed? Describe your initial expectations in terms of role, interactions with staff, interactions with your preceptors, and interactions with the patients. How do you feel about your expectations? Have these feelings changed after you have been on the clinical site? Do you feel your expectations of the clinical site were accurate? Address why or why not. What factors impacted your initial feelings? What factors impacted the change in these feelings, if any?
