A Professional Growth Plan (PGP) identifies activities and strategies that will provide you with the opportunity to evaluate your knowledge, skills and performance. A professional self assessment will assist in providing relevant feedback to help facilitate your ability to evaluate your overall competency and performance as they relate to the LPN Standards of Practice. The use of self-assessment enables practitioners to identify previously unperceived or future needs to guide ongoing professional growth. Completion of the PGP is worth 8 claimable hours for LPNs whom practice for 7 or more months. LPNs who hold a practicing license for less than 7 months are not eligible to complete the Professional Growth Plan.
