College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta

Welcome to CLPNA

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta exists to protect the public by regulating the profession of practical nursing.

We establish education and registration requirements, set and enforce standards of practice and conduct, ensure accountability and proficiency, and handle complaints and discipline. In all these ways, we ensure safe, high quality care for Albertans.

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are nursing professionals with a wide range of skills and an extensive scope of practice. They can be found in an increasingly broad range of healthcare settings beyond direct care including management, research and administration. Wherever LPNs work, they are compassionate, committed and collaborative.

The CLPNA’s Mandate is “To regulate and lead the profession in a manner that protects and serves the public through excellence in practical nursing”. This goal is at the heart of all that CLPNA does, and ensures LPNs remain trusted leaders in healthcare
