Respond to peers with the following: Read another student’s progress note and assume that you are a PMHNP who will see this patient in an outpatient practice for follow up. Is there anything that wasn’t clear in the note that you would like to ask your NP colleague? Also, assume the patient isn’t tolerating the medication when you see them in follow up. Identify an alternative medication that would be appropriate and why you would choose it. Please support your writing with at least one peer review journal.
