2. American Nurses Credentialing Center certification requirements
3. American Nurses Association, Code of Ethics
4. PsychiatricMental Health Nursing Standards of Practice

outline steps toward certification that acknowledge knowledge and expertise, but do not delineate roles and

responsibilities.
