The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) is the regulatory (licensing) organization for the province’s 13,000 Licensed Practical Nurses.

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are proud professionals who contribute to Alberta's health care system each and every day.

Nursing encompasses a wide range of practice, including caring for all ages, from infants to the elderly, and working in all types of environments, from a hospital to a home to a long term care centre. Each day is different and the opportunities for LPNs are endless.

The CLPNA is a non-profit, non-government, regulatory organization led by LPNs. CLPNA exists to protect Alberta healthcare users - the public. We regulate the profession of Licensed Practical Nursing, setting and maintaining standards to ensure the public receives safe, competent, and ethical healthcare services. Our focus and commitment to public protection underscores everything we do.

Albertans can be confident Licensed Practical Nurses are regulated through CLPNA’s enactment of government legislation.
