NURS6670 Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Role II
Week 2 Assignment 2
Practicum
Journal: Safe Prescribing
There is
probably no greater responsibility that the psychiatric mental health nurse
practitioner assumes than the responsibility of prescribing medications. While
someone can be harmed by psychotherapy, the level and intensity of the harm
generally does not come to the same level of harm that can occur from improper
prescribing. The PMHNP must understand his/her responsibility both at a state
and federal level when it comes to prescribing medications.
In this
Practicum Journal Assignment, you will explore the legalities associated with
prescribing controlled substances, as well as what a DEA number is, how to
obtain one, and, most importantly, how to prescribe controlled substances in
your state.
