Your Standards in Focus

The CLPNM Board of Directors approved new Standards of Practice and Conduct for the profession in 2021. The Standards articulate expectations for safe, ethical, and competent nursing practice, along with professionalism in the nurse’s conduct. The Standards apply to all CLPNM registrants (including student practical nurses, graduate practical nurses, and licensed practical nurses) in all settings.

To help CLPNM registrants become familiar with the new Standards, the CLPNM will be posting monthly articles to highlight a variety of topics. Check back each month for information that will help you understand how to understand and apply your professional responsibilities.
