    Quote for Suzy K:
    I think LPNs need to get it together and form an organization specifically for them to regulate their practice and standardize things

    What Is NFLPN

    The National Federation of Licensed Practical Nurses, Inc. (NFLPN) is the professional organization for licensed practical nurses and licensed vocational nurses and practical/vocational nursing students in the United States and Canada.

    NFLPN was founded in the state of New York in 1949 to provide a structure at the national level through which LPNs and LVNs could promote better patient care and to speak and act on behalf of the occupational group. It is the only organization in the United States governed entirely by LPNs and LVNs for LPNs and LVNs. NFLPN is recognized by the other national nursing organizations as the official voice of LPNs and LVNs.


    Founded by Practical Nurse Educators in 1941, NAPNES is the world's oldest nursing organization dedicated exclusively to promotion of quality nursing service through the practice of licensed practical/vocational nurses.
