Family Observation Paper

Satisfactory Essays
This family observation brought out several different feelings for each group member individually. It also lead to quality insight that we believe is required as nurses when caring for patients and their families. It doesn’t matter if our career leads us to a Psychiatric unit or a Medical Surgical floor, we will still encounter mental illness, and we will need to have enough knowledge to deal with it. Listening to a mother talk about her first hand experience with a child of mental illness was an overall beneficial experience for our group. Strengths and weaknesses in the mother were reflected upon, as well as how we would deal with situations of mental illness as future nurses.
