Update! Speak up to MN Board of Nursing About LPN Scope Expansion

9 May

SPEAK UP FOR OUR NURSING STANDARDS

The Minnesota Board of Nursing wants to significantly change the Nurse Practice Act to alter Scope of Practice language.

This is NOT a friendly change.

Their proposals reflect a corporate health care employer’s dream to muddy the lines of responsibility between RNs and LPNs – allowing health care facilities to get more work for less money.  It also pits our two practices in a fabricated fight that will only result in jeopardizing public safety.

For the sake of your license and the future of nursing, attend an upcoming “listening session” hosted by the Minnesota Board of Nursing.  They want to hear from us about their intention to undermine key elements of our practice, like assessement and delegation.

WE NEED TO BE HERE AND READY TO SPEAK UP
