Diabetes Case Study in Mentorship for Nurse Practitioners

Jan 18, 2022

So many new grads are most worried about building their clinical knowledge base-- for good reason!

But it’s one thing to prepare for clinical topics-- researching algorithms, choosing the best practice based on the evidence-- but an entirely different experience trying to apply them to the “real world.”

Through Real World NP, I have the awesome privilege to work with new grad nurse practitioners on-on-one in mentorship calls.

Some of mentorship is reassuring new grad NPs about their clinical judgment decisions, and it also involves discussing the most up to date guidelines.

But there’s another level to mentorship and “real world” practice that you just can’t get in school.

This week, I want to share with you some of the “behind the scenes” of what our mentoring conversations are like.

I’m covering an example patient case with complex diabetes and medical conditions that I reviewed with a real-life new grad nurse practitioner during a mentoring conversation.

Full disclosure: I hope to someday record a call with a new grad NP (with consent and voice-masking, of course), but for now, it’s just me talking, reviewing what we talked about and the variety of ways we approached the situation.

Hopefully this helps you apply these lines of thinking to your own patient cases!

(Heads up: it’s audio-only this week -- covid times are cray cray and require pivots, but my video equipment is ready for next week!)

Also, speaking of mentorship, we’re expanding our offerings OH. SO. SOON. Jump on the waitlist here to learn more and get first dibs.
