Unit 7: Self Care, Professional Development and Support for the NP – Discussion
Topic 1: Code of Ethics for Nurses, Encountering Challenging Dilemmas and Mentorship
The role of the NP is quite rewarding. However, it can be wrought with challenges, as well. Review the Code of Ethics for Nurses and examine potential challenges the NP may encounter in practice and create potential solutions. Share this with your colleagues in your post and offer feedback as you read the posts of others.
Might the availability of other NPs as mentors impact how the novice NP manages challenges? Evaluate the pros and cons of mentorship and the novice NP in negotiating challenges encountered in the role.
