Other Registration Types
Members who, for any reason:
are encouraged to renew as an Associate for $50. Associate status is a non-practicing registration type; therefore, it does not allow you to practice as an LPN. Associate members continue to receive CARE magazine, e-newsletters, and annual notices regarding Registration Renewal.
If an Associate member decides to return to practice before the next Registration Renewal period, the Reinstatement Fee ($50) is covered by the Associate Fee and only the Active Registration Fee of $350 is required.
Members Not Renewing
Members who, for any reason:
should notify CLPNA of their change in status on the Registration Renewal Application. This serves as:
If a Registration Renewal Application is not completed, further reminders and suspension/cancellation notifications will be sent to the member as required by the Health Professions Act.
Practicing Without a Valid Practice Permit is Illegal
Individuals without a valid (registration type Active/Limited/Temporary/Conditional) Practice Permit are not authorized to use the title “LPN” or work as a Licensed Practical Nurse in Alberta, as per Section 43 of the Health Professions Act.
Working as a LPN without a valid Practice Permit constitutes unprofessional conduct and violation will subject the individual to disciplinary action including fines of $500 or more.
Members holding an Associate Permit are not permitted to practice nursing as a LPN.
Most members will receive access to their Practice Permit on the “Permits & Receipts” tab immediately after completing their Registration Renewal Application, with one exception. Exception: Members subscribed to the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PAP) and who complete the online Registration Renewal Application in October will receive access to their Practice Permit after their final PAP payment is processed in mid-November.
Members can see and print their Practice Permit and Tax Receipt on the “Permits & Receipts” tab by logging in to myCLPNA.com.
Members will not receive a Practice Permit in the mail from CLPNA.
If access to a Practice Permit is not available within the above timelines, please contact CLPNA.
Proof of Registration on Public Registry of LPNs
Members and employers requiring proof of LPN registration status should access the CLPNA’s Public Registry of LPNs. The Public Registry shows a member’s current and future registration status, specialties and restrictions.
