Part 2: Scope of practice standards

Scope of practice standards establish the standards, limits and conditions for licensed practical nurses’ practice.

Autonomous scope of practice and client-specific orders

Scope of Practice Standards establish the standards, limits, and conditions for licensed practical nurses' practice.  These scope of practice standards link to other standards, policies, and bylaws of BCCNM and all legislation relevant to licensed practical nursing practice.

For the purposes of these scope of practice standards, the “LPN Regulation" refers to the  Nurses (Licensed Practical) Regulation which applies to licensed practical nurses in British Columbia.

Organizations establish processes, supports, and resources such as policies, procedures and decision support tools to ensure that licensed practical nurses meet the standards of practice set out by BCCNM.
