Course Details


Adults with psychiatric conditions who are admitted as inpatients need to be assessed carefully to ensure they receive the best possible care. Although staff nurses don’t make the diagnosis, your assessment can help the psychiatrist and other treatment team members understand the patient’s struggle. This is particularly important as many inpatients are hospitalized involuntarily and timely intervention is essential. This article provides an overview of selected psychiatric conditions and their signs and symptoms.

  1. Compare signs and symptoms of six psychiatric conditions in adult inpatients.
  2. Identify assessment tips for these conditions.
  3. Describe general assessment techniques.
