“Success depends in a very large measure upon individual initiative and exertion, and cannot be achieved except by a dint of hard work.” – Anna Pavlova
The hard work of LPNs will be up for review when one in five Alberta Licensed Practical Nurses participates in mandatory Continuing Competency Program Validation. Starting May 10, 2017, several thousand LPNs were asked to verify completion of their 2015 and 2016 Learning Plans by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta.
Online Tracking and Submission
With initiative and planning, CCP Validation can be easy using the online submission process. Plan ahead to achieve success. CLPNA recommends LPNs regularly track their continuing education using the online Record of Learning, located on their member profile at www.myCLPNA.com.
What is Continuing Compency Program Validation?
According to Alberta’s Health Professions Act, LPNs are required to keep their nursing knowledge and skills up-to-date through the Continuing Competency Program (CCP). Through the program, LPNs engage in activities that contribute to the continuing development of nursing competencies. LPNs advance their professional practice with lifelong learning, building an individual learning plan, and contributing to quality nursing practice and best possible client outcomes.
CCP Validation monitors LPN participation in this program. It ensures accountability through assessment of the validity of a member’s Continuing Competence documents and evaluation of whether learning has been integrated into practice.
