PAPs and fee increase 2015 board election results

Did you sign up for preauthorized payments (PAPs) to pay your 2016 annual registration renewal fee? Are you wondering when to renew and how the fee increase is added? We have created some FAQs to answer these questions.

CLPNBC's board welcomes three new members and one returning member! Ballots were mailed to 2,416 eligible licensed practical nurses; 4% of eligible ballots were returned. Who was elected, who did the Board appoint, and who was acclaimed?

You are an LPN working on a surgical unit. While preparing your client for a procedure he tells you he is unsure if he still wants to go through with it. He has already signed the surgical consent form. You understand the procedure. What is your responsibility in this situation?


Please select an option:

  1. Provide your client with an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers about the surgical procedure. Let him know that he has the right to revoke consent at any time.
  2. Explain to your client that when he signed the surgical consent form he confirmed that he understood the risks and benefits of the procedure and gave his permission to go ahead.
  3. Tell your client it is probably in his best interest to cancel the procedure and recommend he seek a second opinion. Advocate for your client's procedure to be cancelled.
  4. Explain that if he wants more information about the procedure or if he wants to revoke his consent, he needs to speak to his physician.
