NRNP 6655 Assignment Certification Exam Pretest

It is time to begin formally planning and studying for your certification exam. You will use
your review text, The Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Certification
Review Manual, in both this course and in NRNP 6675 as a tool to aid in your preparation.
Chapter 16 of this text contains practice exam questions that will help you prepare to take
the national certification. For this Assignment, you will take 100 of these questions as a
pretest.

To Prepare
You do not need to study or prepare for this test. It is being used as a diagnostic pre-
assessment to gauge your current knowledge. Set aside time to complete 100 of these
questions.
By Day 7 of Week 2
Complete the practice questions. Afterward, score your results using the answer key in the
text. Save your score for next week, when you will create a certification exam study plan
based on your results. There is no submission requirement this week related to your
pretest.
Note: Your grade for the Week 3 Assignment will not be derived from your test results but
from your self-reflection on the results in your Week 3 Study Plan Assignment.

Week 3

Week 3: Special Considerations Related to Prescribing for Children and Adolescents
There is probably no greater responsibility that the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner assumes
than the responsibility of prescribing medications. While patients can be harmed by psychotherapy, the
level and intensity of the harm generally does not approach the same level of harm that can occur from
improper prescribing. PMHNPs must understand their responsibility, both at the state and federal levels,
when it comes to prescribing medications.
This week, you will explore the particular clinical considerations associated with prescribing for children
and adolescents.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
 Recommend psychopharmacological interventions for children and adolescents
 Recommend nonpharmacological interventions for children and adolescents in mental health
settings
 Analyze clinical decision making related to treatment of children and adolescents in mental
health settings
 Evaluate mastery of nurse practitioner knowledge in preparation for the nurse practitioner
national certification examination
 Create a study plan for the nurse practitioner national certification examination
