Tell us what you think

CLPNBC would like your feedback on the draft Jurisprudence resource, A Personal Inventory – Potential Risks & Supports for LPN Practice. This new resource may help you identify and reflect on your personal risks and risks in your practice environment that may affect your ability to practise safely, competently and ethically. The more feedback you give us, the more helpful this resource will be for you and your colleagues.
