A DOCTOR? A director? A nurse manager? Who is the biggest fan of LPNs in your workplace? 

This is your chance to have them recognized and honoured!

A final one-week window has just opened for LPNs to submit a nomination for the CLPNA’s Interprofessional Development Award.

Nominations accepted until Thursday, March 23 at 11:55pm (MDT). 

Each year, the CLPNA honours excellent health care leaders who are instrumental in fostering a collaborative practice environment, promoting professional growth and development of LPNs. Those managers, educators, and others who take steps to ensure all team members perform their optimal scope of practice, and who speak often about the value of LPNs as vital and respected team members. This is the only CLPNA Award for those who are not Licensed Practical Nurses.

All nominees are invited to the CLPNA’s Awards Dinner, April 27 in Calgary, when the winner will be announced.

The winner will be featured in the Summer issue of the CLPNA’s member magazine, CARE.
