(Updated June 30/15)
A refreshed look and some unique new features were added to the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta’s (CLPNA) website when it was re-launched in June 2013.
Here are five of them:
1. You get your own Page
Essentials you can hit on.
They are big and bold, standing out proudly on our homepage. Our “I am a…” dedicated landing pages were built with you in mind. They make it easier to find the most popular information for all our visitors:
- I am a Member
- I am an Applicant
- I am an Internationally Educated Nurse
- I am an Employer
- I am a Member of the Public
2. LPN practice policies are easier to find
Policies you can draw on
We reorganized our Resources web page and re-launched it as “Legislation, Practice & Policy”. It’s one stop for Alberta LPNs and employers to find everything from LPN practice guidelines to privacy legislation, the Competency Profile for LPNs to occupational health and safety information.
3. LPN news is more shareable.
News you can comment on
Spreading the words about LPNs has never been easier. Every news post has one-click posting to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, and dozens of other social media sites! Have something to say? Comments are permitted beneath News posts for several weeks after publication. Remember: Keep it clean, kind and appropriate.
4. LPN news is richer and permanent.
News you can lean on
News posts will contain more explanation to help you understand how each item impacts you and your practice. Sometimes, we’ll even include a video! And they’ll never disappear off our ‘News & Events’ webpage. We’re giving you more tools to ensure you’re in-the-know and up-to-date.
5. LPNs and applicants get a private login
Privacy you can count on
Members and applicants receive their own login directly to their personal file with a new name, ‘myCLPNA Login’, located in the upper right corner of the homepage. It can also be accessed directly at www.myCLPNA.com. The login gives easy access to update address, email or phone number; to change employment info; to check application status; and to complete Registration Renewal or Continuing Competency Program Validation.
