Describe the responsibility of the professional nurse to practice within the legal scope of practice

Describe the responsibility of the professional nurse to practice within the legal scope of practice and to uphold the code of ethics set forth by the profession as defined by the American Nurses Association.
• Address outcomes in 3 paragraphs by describing an experience in a clinical setting. Support your discussion with relevant references. Reflect on what you are doing and seeing in the clinical setting. Analyze, synthesize, and reflect on clinical experiences based on the course content. Do not just report your experiences. Use your experience to demonstrate that outcome. Longer posts are not better if there is not reflection, evaluation, and exploration of perceptions. If you do not have a clinical experience during this course specific to the outcome, draw on past clinical experiences.
• Consider the following to help guide your thinking:
o Describe what occurred: setting, persons involved, event
o How did it go? What happened and why?
o Using your text, articles or other sources to guide your analysis. What could have been done better? What alternatives could have been considered?
o What have you learned that will apply to your nursing practice?
