four questions self-employed LPNs should ask themselves

Are you self-employed or thinking of becoming self-employed? 

Do you want to use the name “nurse” in your business? Do you know what CLPNBC’s bylaws say about the collection and use of client information? Do you have the right insurance coverage for your business? Are you meeting CLPNBC’s Standards of Practice? 

If you have asked yourself these questions or other questions about being a self-employed LPN, CLPNBC has a resource that will help you. This resource contains links to websites to help you understand your responsibilities and provides information about additional professional and legal obligations.

All licensed practical nurses (LPNs) are required to follow the Standards of Practice set by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia (CLPNBC) to provide safe, competent, and ethical care. CLPNBC documents provide direction for LPNs in every practice setting. This resource helps self-employed LPNs understand their professional responsibilities.
