Adopted by NFLPN and NCLPNA
 1. The fundamental responsibility of the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is to endeavor to conserve life and to promote health, with the welfare of the client as the primary concern.
 2. The LPN must be adequately prepared to practice and should take advantage of all educational programs.
3. The LPN should know the limitations of one's professional practice and follow professional guidelines for practical nursing.
 4. The LPN should at all times present an appearance that would reflect credit to him or her and the profession.
 5. The LPN must respect the personís race, beliefs, and ethnicity at all times and hold all information in strict confidence.
 6. The LPN must unselfishly carry out prescribed care necessary to promote the health and comfort of the client.
 7. The LPN should seek advice and clarification if in doubt as to the prescribed procedure or how to carry out the procedure.
 8. In employment, the LPN must abide by the policies of the hospital/agency, accepting only such compensation as the contract implies. A LPN should not expect or accept tips or bribes.
 9. The LPN should be loyal to the physician in charge and to all members of the health care team and refuse to participate in unethical conduct.
 10. In private life, the LPN should adhere to high standards of personal ethics, which would reflect favorably upon the profession, and the welfare of the community.
 11. The LPN should share responsibility with other citizens and health professionals in promoting efforts to meet the health care needs of the public on a local, state, and national level.
 12. The LPN should maintain memberships and actively participate in local, state, and national organizations.
