you will choose one patient encounter to submit a Follow-up SOAP note for review.
Please see the Soap Note Template in Course Documents to guide your writing of SOAP notes.
Follow the rubric to develop your SOAP notes for this term.
The focus is on your ability to integrate your subjective and objective information gathering into formulation of diagnoses and development of patient-centered, evidence-based plans of care for patients of all ages with multiple, complex mental health conditions. At the end of this term, your SOAP notes will have demonstrated your knowledge of evidence-based practice, clinical expertise, and patient/family preferences as expected for an independent nurse practitioner incorporating psychotherapy into practice.

Gary Davis, a 36-year-old white male, was disheveled and unkempt on presentation to the outpatient office. He was wearing dirty khaki pants, an unbuttoned golf shirt, and white shoes and appeared slightly younger than his stated age. During the interview, he was attentive and calm. He was impatient, but polite in his interactions with this examiner. Mr. Davis reported that today was the best day of his life, because he had decided he was going to be better and start his own company. His affect was labile, but appropriate to the content of his speech (i.e., he became tearful when reporting he had “bogeyed number 15” in gold yesterday). His speech was loud, pressured at times then he would quickly gain composure to a more neutral tone. He exhibited loosening of associations and flight of ideas; he intermittently and unpredictably shifted the topic of conversation from golf, to the mating habits of geese, to the likelihood of extraterrestrial life. Mr. Davis described grandiose delusions regarding his sexual and athletic performance. He reported no auditory hallucinations. He was oriented to time and place. He denied suicidal and homicidal ideation. He refused to participate in intellectual- or memory-related portions of the examination. Reliability, judgment, and insight were impaired.
