The American Association of Nurse Life Care Planners (AANLCP®) is a non-profit professional nursing association founded by nurses for nurses. Nurses are qualified to develop Life Care Plans using the nursing process in a collaborative effort with other health care providers as needed. We believe nurses should take an active role in the education and certification process, as well as participating in an organization which supports those goals and vision. AANLCP® offers Standards of Practice and a Code of Ethics to promote and establish excellence among its members.
AANLCP® recognizes the Nurse Life Care Planner as the Registered Nurse (R.N.) who assesses, identifies problems, plans for appropriate interventions, implements and evaluates the plan in the Nurse Life Care Planning process. AANLCP® promotes the professional practice that the Registered Nurse delivers to the life care planning process.
AANLCP® promotes education, collegiality, collaboration, research, and standards as they relate to the practice of Nurse Life Care Planning.
