As an advanced practice nurse, you will run into situations where a patient’s wishes about

his or her health conflict with evidence, your own experience, or a family’s wishes. This

may create an ethical dilemma. What do you do when these situations occur?

In this Lab Assignment, you will explore evidence-based practice guidelines and ethical

considerations for specific scenarios.


To Prepare

Review the scenarios provided by your instructor for this week’s Assignment. Please see the

“Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your scenarios.

 Based on the scenarios provided:

o Select one scenario, and reflect on the material presented throughout this course.

o What necessary information would need to be obtained about the patient through

health assessments and diagnostic tests?

o Consider how you would respond as an advanced practice nurse. Review

evidence-based practice guidelines and ethical considerations applicable to the

scenarios you selected.


The Lab Assignment

Write a detailed one-page narrative (not a formal paper) explaining the health

assessment information required for a diagnosis of your selected patient (include the

scenario number). Explain how you would respond to the scenario as an advanced

practice nurse using evidence-based practice guidelines and applying ethical

considerations. Justify your response using at least three different references from
