MoSALPN is a not-for-profit organization specially formulated to represent the Licensed Practical Nurse and to acquaint the general public with respect to Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN). Mineral Area College requires all current students admitted to the Program in Practical Nursing to become members of our local MoSALPN Chapter.
The Missouri State Association of Licensed Practical Nurses, Inc., is the only full service professional organization in Missouri representing the state's 22,000 licensed practical nurses. The association state headquarter office is located in Jefferson City, Missouri, for centralized management of MoSALPN many activities and representing the LPN at government hearing and inquiries. We affiliate with all major health service groups and associations in the state. The "Broadcaster" is the official quarterly newsletter of the Association. The MoSALPN web site and contact information is available on-line at http://www.mosalpn.org.
The chapter of MoSALPN at Mineral Area College elects student officers in the fall of each program year. Students participate in fundraising activities to provide community service, each spring attend LPN/SPN Legislative Rally Day at our Missouri State Capital, and each summer attend the annual MoSALPN Convention, which is planned for the Holiday Inn Select in Columbia, MO. Students attending convention enjoy a wide variety of educational workshops and the opportunity to network with practical nursing students state-wide.
MoSALPN encourages members to choose a proactive approach to assure the future of Missouri ’s Licensed Practical Nursing profession.
