Movie Reflection Paper
1. View a movie that pertains to Mental Health Nursing – see list below.
2. Discuss the diagnosis/pathophysiology of the disorder that you think is depicted in the movie. I am not grading you on your diagnostic ability, because nurses cannot diagnose. Just tell me what you think is going on and why you think that.
3. Discuss what nursing interventions might be appropriate for the diagnosis (medications, etc).
