I was given a community placement starting in Sept. at a shelter for abused women and children. I am not woking under an RN and am wondering how to approach this placement. I have to do health promotion in terms of giving two hour long presentations and speak with each client individually. I am to take their health histories and can do assessments. Any tips of making this placement all it can be would be great. Thanks!

- Jul 28, '08 by ONCRN84Work with them where they are at. If you start trying to teach about something they're not ready for, it's not going to go far. A lot of things need to be individualized in a situation like that. They all have different stories, different backgrounds, and different problems.
Good luck! I'm a relatively new PHN, but I hope it helps!
