Canadian Standards of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing
4th Edition, 2014
The Primary purpose of having standards is to provide direction for professional practice in order to promote competent, safe and ethical service for clients (CNA, 2002a,p.9) Through these standards nurses can articulate to others what is the desired and achievable level of performance in the speciality area and be held accountable. Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing (PMHN) Practice Standards provide a guide for the evaluation of psychiatric and mental health nursing practice within a professional and ethical framework.
