Using Peer Discussion to Create a SOAP Note in Graduate Clinical Nursing Education


ABSTRACT: Faculty in graduate nursing education have been challenged when teaching first-year family nurse practitioner students to accurately assess a patient and build a subjective, objective, assessment, and plan note (SOAP note) through history taking and patient interviews. Students' familiarity with peer discussion can assist with learning the SOAP note process. Using peer discussion, faculty were able to make the learning process student friendly and useful in future clinical settings.
