On October 1, Licensed Practical Nurses registered with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) begin renewing their registration for the 2014 calendar year.
LPNs with an Active Practice Permit must complete the annual Registration Renewal Application in order to work in Alberta as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Before the December 1 deadline, the fee is $350. An Associate, or non-practicing, member may renew for $50.
Active members who renew before November 1 will be automatically entered into the “Ready, Click, Win!” Contest to win back their Active Registration Renewal Fee.
Only individuals with a valid CLPNA Practice Permit (Active/Limited/Temporary/Conditional) are authorized to work as a Licensed Practical Nurse in Alberta or use the title “LPN”, as per s43 of the Health Professions Act.
To validate the current and future registration status of a LPN, specialties or conditions, anyone can search CLPNA’s Public Registry of LPNs by name or registration number.
