American Nurses Association & American Psychiatric Nurses Association (2014). Psychiatric–mental health nursing: Scope and standards of practice (2nd ed.). American Nurses Association.
Select two of the standards below. Summarize the competencies associated with the selected standard.
Standard 5A: Coordination of Care
Standard 5B: Health Teaching and Health Promotion
Standard 5D: Prescriptive Authority
Address the questions below specific to each of the standards you selected.
According to Standard 5A, the PMHNP functions as the single point of accountability for all medical and psychiatric services. Many PMHNPs are employed within psychiatric facilities and may be asked to complete the mental health intake assessment and the admission physical, as well as prescribe and monitor all medications during the inpatient stay. What are the scope of practice implications for PMHNPs providing both physical and mental healthcare, including prescribing considerations?
Standard 5B states the PMHNP evaluates health information resources, such as the Internet, in the area of practice for accuracy, readability, and comprehensibility to help healthcare consumers access quality information. As a practicing PMHNP, how will you respond to clients who request medications or treatments based on information they researched on the internet?
Standard 5D states the PMHNP prescribes pharmacologic agents based on current knowledge of pharmacology and physiology. PMHNPs are charged to keep current with evidence-based practice. New medications are frequently developed and released. What strategies will you use to remain current in your knowledge of new psychopharmacologic options for your clients? What resources exist to help you?
Provide an example of how you would apply each of the selected standards in your future practice.
