Wk 3 – Summative Assessment: Ethical Decision-Making
Ethical principles are of utmost importance for nurse practitioners because they direct your practice.
Review the Values and Ethics Competencies below (found in Box 13.5 on p. 338 of your text Hamric and Hanson’s Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach):
Place the interests of patients and populations at the center of interprofessional health care delivery.

Embrace the cultural diversity and individual differences that characterize patients, populations, and the health care team.

Tips for Success and your PowerPoint
Hello Future APRNs,
All PPs should have speaker notes.
Your speaker notes should preview or highlight the information on your slides. The text
on the slides should be short phrases or bullet points and there should not be more than
6 lines on each leach slide. You must provide citations within the PP. The citations can
be in the speaker notes or on the slide. All clip art and photos should have a citation.
Please avoid using any logo, photos, or clip art that has a copyright unless you are
granted permission. You can obtain free clip art and photos from Creative Commons or
Free Use. Do not submit a PDF. Make sure you carefully review the criteria for each
assignment,( NOTE: plagiarism will be check )
Many of you may be experienced in using PP, but I find some students really struggle
with the format.
