New Self-Study Module: Documentation

Nursing documentation is a critical component of nursing practice required for communication, safe and ethical patient care, and legal purposes. Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are accountable to ensure their documentation contains the essential elements and meets expectations regardless of practice context. 

The CLPNA’s new online self-study Documentation module lays out the CLPNA’s expectations for LPNs. The module is based on the CLPNA’s Documentation Policy and includes several strategies to help ensure quality practices. The module content is intended to be flexible enough to allow for variations in employer policy and documentation methods, but comprehensive enough to meet LPN professional Standards of Practiceand regulatory expectations. 

All LPNs are encouraged to take advantage of this learning resource. Learning modules are designed to help you understand practice standards and other related documents. They are convenient and allow you to learn at your own pace at any time of day.
