Licensed Practical Nurses hold an inherent position of power and influence over patients while providing nursing care. Professional boundaries allow for safe space between a nurse’s position of power and a patient’s vulnerability. Maintaining professional boundaries is a foundational part of nursing practice and a key characteristic of a therapeutic nurse-patient relationship built on trust, respect, and compassion.
