Note: Throughout the program you will be reading excerpts from the ANA’s Scope & Standards of Practice for Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing. It is essential to your success on the ANCC board certification exam for Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioners that you know the scope of practice of the advanced practice psychiatric/mental health nurse. You should also be able to differentiate between the generalist RN role in psychiatric/mental health nursing and the advanced practice nurse role.
NOTE: Walden University currently uses the seventh edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) as the accepted standard for citations, references, and writing style guidelines. This course was developed when APA’s sixth edition was the standard, and we are in the process of making any necessary updates to the course content. Please be sure to consult the seventh edition of the APA manual, as well as the Walden Writing Center’s APA resources, for all your written assignments.
