Follow along with this series of vignettes where nurses interact with clients experiencing a wide range of mental health challenges. In each situation there are two scenarios, the novice scenario helps students to see and anticipate some of the more common errors that a student nurse may make when first dealing with these clients. In contrast the expert scenario shows students how a mental health nurse with more advanced skills and knowledge would handle these situations. This series of examples is a valuable learning tool for nurses preparing to enter the mental health field. One of the things that mental health nurses must do on a continuous basis with their clients is monitoring their mental status. In this pair of vignettes, you will see a novice and expert nurse conducting a mental status assessment with a client who is difficult to engage.
