The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta is shocked and tremendously concerned, as all Albertans have, by the devastating fire and mandatory evacuation in Fort McMurray and region that has directly impacted 90,000 Albertans, including more than 120 Licensed Practical Nurses.
To support those affected, CLPNA is donating $5000 immediately to the Red Cross to support their humanitarian efforts. If you have not done so already, we encourage all LPNs to give. A special thanks to all LPNs participating in other charitable efforts.
The CLPNA will prioritize courtesy registration permits to nurses travelling to Alberta to assist with those affected by the fires.
Additionally, CLPNA is making allowances wherever needed for those members directly impacted.
Those with nursing practice inquiries may contact CLPNA’s Practice Consultants at firstname.lastname@example.org, 780-484-8886 or 1-800-661-5877 (toll free in Alberta).
