Clear communication is necessary when working to share and advance the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta’s mandate, vision, and mission. The Council protects and serves the public through excellence in Practical Nursing.
The 2017 Annual Report and 2018-2021 Strategic Plan is a snapshot of work initiated, in-progress, or completed that support CLPNA’s vision; and the members commitment to quality, safe, competent, and ethical care in collaboration with clients, families, and other providers.
According to the Annual Report, the CLPNA saw an increase of 5% in registration (15,860 members), 1,390 Alberta graduate registrations, and a reduction of 17% in complaints received. Enhancement in regulatory guidance and research were seen as priorities, and significant gains were made in policy development and research activity. Outdated regulations (2003) which have obstructed full utilization of LPNs were reviewed and Council is currently working with government and other stakeholders addressing priority issues and the updating of CLPNA regulation
The 2018-2012 Strategic Plan describes future direction of the CLPNA in seven core areas: registration, conduct, competence, research, policy, communication, and organizational culture.
The 2017 Annual Report and the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan will be presented at the CLPNA’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at the River Cree Resort in Edmonton.
