The goal of this unit will be to define, describe and apply the legal, ethical and professional principles by utilization of the nursing process for
clients with mental health disorders. The focus of this unit is to prepare students so they will be less fearful and more open to the psychiatric
experience. The unit contains multiple patient situations to establish relevance in applying the nursing process to clinical practice. The role of the
