NRNP 6655 Ethical and Legal Foundations of PMHNP Care

In your role as a PMHNP, you will regularly encounter situations that require your ability
to make sound judgments and practice decisions for the safety and well-being of
individuals, families, and communities. There may not be a clear-cut answer of how to
address the issue, but your ethical decision making must be based on evidence-based
practice and what is good, right, and beneficial for patients. You will encounter patients
who do not hold your values, but you must remain professional and unbiased in the care
you provide to all patients regardless of their background or worldview. You must be
prepared to critically analyze ethical situations and develop an appropriate plan of action.

Reminder: Keep Your Library of Advanced Practice Nursing Texts at Your Fingertips
Several textbooks are assigned in multiple courses in your program. That is, you will see
reading assignments from the books assigned in the Learning Resources of more than one
course. You should, however, keep all prior textbooks—not just the ones explicitly
assigned—readily accessible. The expectation is that you will independently consult these
prior textbooks to synthesize information needed to complete your final courses. This is
your time to “put it all together” and to more fully embrace the advanced practice nursing
role. Part of the responsibility of advanced practice is developing information literacy skills
to know where to locate needed information for your clinical practice.
