As psychiatric nursing practice is an interaction between a psychiatric nurse and mentally ill patient so we interact with mentally ill patient by listening, observing the behavioral out-comes like aggression, hallucination, delusion and identification of suicidal thought etc. Reflection is a process of reviewing an experience of practice in order to describe, analyze, evaluate and so inform learning about practices. It is difficult to share by an instructor’s own experience and teach the symptoms of mentally ill patients i.e. aggression, suicidal thoughts, hallucination, delusion to the novice psychiatry nursing students who would not merely exposed to real life experience. Quasi-experimental design with 2 groups each consists of 15 participants and an III learning group with 20 subjects was assessed for pre-experiential learning skills before training session was done by control I and experimental II groups.
