The purpose of this dissertation was to explore the correlation between professional values of licensed practical nurses working in long term care settings and time post initial licensure. A quantitative non-experimental correlational research design was used to capture self-reports of professional values of licensed practical nurses then determine if and to what extent a relationship exists between professional values and time post initial licensure. The Nurses Professional Values Scale- Revised (NPVS-R) instrument was used to capture the professional values of 101 LPNs employed in long term care settings in Vermont and correlate the results with time post initial licensure. The NPVS-R, developed by Weis and Schank (2009), is a psychometrically sound instrument for measuring professional nurses' values. The results indicate that LPNs who have been licensed 5-10 years have the highest professional values when compared to LPNs employed 1-4 years and greater than 10 years. The results also indicate, a negative correlation exists between all professional values of LPNs and time post initial licensure if the LPN is employed in a long- term care setting. Four of the twenty-six professional values statements were noted to be negatively correlated and statistically significant (p<0.05). This is the first study to use the NPVS-R to collect and measure the professional values of LPNs. This study’s findings may have significance for nursing education, nursing regulation and licensure, and employment of the LPN in long term care.
