LPNs provide a wide range of professional nursing services to patients in a variety of settings. In these roles an LPN can either be an employee or may be self-employed (in which case the LPN may also act as an employer). This Practice Guideline presents information to guide LPNs who engage in or who are considering self-employed LPN practice. This document outlines self-employed practice and the professional expectations that are involved. This practice guideline is not a substitute for legal or business advice nor does the CLPNA provide legal or business advice to registrants.
