Welcome to the Massachusetts Licensed Practical Nurse Society
Mass LPN is dedicated to empowering Massachusetts licensed practical nurses to make informed decisions regarding regulatory and legislative issues which affect our profession. We are also committed to insuring quality healthcare for all residents of the Commonwealth and strengthening our identity as licensed healthcare providers.
Traditionally, LPN's are thought of as direct bedside caregivers. In today's healthcare climate, LPN's continue to care for residents of long-term care and assisted living facilities, as well as care for patients in community settings such as private homes, primary care and specialty medical practices, outpatient clinics, community health centers, and adult day health facilities. LPN's are also employed by healthcare delivery systems and health insurance companies to participate in care management processes to insure continuity as patients navigate through the healthcare system.
A hearing has been scheduled for October 20, 2015 on bill H.1928

The hearing is before the Joint Committee on Public Health. Everyone who cares about safe patient care should either submit written testimony or appear to testify in person. The hearing will be from 1-5 PM at the State House in room B-2.
