Practice Guidelines illustrate how LPNs can meet the standards of practice when performing specific activities and are written to guide and inform LPN practice.
Blood/blood-product transfusion therapy is a therapeutic nursing intervention that involves the preparation, administration, monitoring, evaluation, and documenting of these products.
Legislation requires LPNs to report in writing to CLPNBC (or another person's College), if the LPN, on reasonable and probable grounds, believes that the continued practice of a designated health profession by the other person might constitute a danger to the public.
Medication administration is a nursing intervention that involves the preparation, administration, evaluation, and documentation of ordered medications.
Peripheral infusion therapy is a nursing intervention that involves the preparation, administration, evaluation, and documentation of an ordered substance (medicated or non-medicated) into a vein, either intermittently or continuously.
A self-employed LPN is a registrant who provides direct nursing services for a fee. The self-employed LPN may be involved in direct nursing care, advocacy, health promotion, and education to individuals, families, or groups of clients in homes, institutions, and community-care settings.
LPNs may be in a position in which they assign client care, or parts of client care, to Unregulated Care Providers (UCPs).
