Professional Formation of the Future Nurse Practitioner

Conduct the self-reflection to support the professional formation of the future nurse practitioner in the sphere of pharmacologic therapy.

How have your attitudes changed about selecting appropriate medications based on patient presentation and unique patient factors? How confident do you feel about selecting an appropriate pharmaceutical agent for a patient with a specific diagnosis in the primary care setting? What resources are needed, if any, to help you feel more confident? How has your understanding changed about determining the therapeutic effects, adverse responses, and side effects of drug therapy? Reflect on your preparedness to write appropriate prescriptions according to evidence-based practice guidelines.
