In HPNA’s role as the lead organization in end-of-life and palliative nursing care, the Board of Directors is committed to promoting excellence in end-of-life nursing.   As requested by the HPNA membership this has been expanded to include the development of Nursing Assistant TIPS Sheets.  The development of these teaching sheets is an on-going process and this site will be updated as additional TIPS sheets are approved.

HPNA announces an update for customized HPNA TIPS Sheets that include your organization’s logo. 

Adding your organization’s logo to the HPNA Teaching Sheets is now available from your own computer, giving you more control over when you have your final document and you can update or change your logo any time you want. 

The HPNA Teaching Sheets have been reformatted to include space for a 1” X 2 ¾” logo or label.  To access the process to add your organization’s logo to the HPNA Teaching Sheets, please go to Teaching Sheet Logo.

If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Lynn at the HPNA National Office:
