Binders are now available to order with the new 3rd Edition of the Competency Profile for Licensed Practical Nurses, released in June 2015 by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA).

The Competency Profile is a key document for LPNs, LPN employers, and stakeholders such as educators.

The Profile:

  • identifies base competencies of a typical entry to practice LPN
  • serves as a tool for LPNs interested in changing or advancing their area of practice or scope of practice
  • provides direction to Practical Nurse Educators regarding essential curriculum components
  • guides employers in understanding full scope of practice for role optimization of LPNs across all care settings
  • provides a benchmark for performance management and review
